Best beer ever made by Pittsburgh Brewing Co.--even better than the old IC Golden Lager--Augustiner is definetly one of the best beers ever made, and I've been around and drank a lot.

It isn’t bad. There is kind of a grape juice undertone that you only notice if you pay attention. It may be a little too thin, but other than that, it is pretty good.

Had this on tap at a Primanti Bros in Pittsburgh (awesome place)!
AR: Sweet corn, caramel and malt
APP: Head was very light brown / white and went quickly. Beer was a clear amber.
FLAV: Malty, caramel with a light sour finish.
PAL: Light thin body with little carbonation
OVRL: I like the original IC better, but this was good beer that I would have again. A good neighborhood drinking beer that goes well with food.

My friend bought this by mistake, thinking it was the dark Augustiner. Still quite good.

First time trying this beer. Not to much taste. Medium dark. Good buy though for about 16 bucks.

I am highly impressed with this pale lager. definitely head and shoulders above it’s style. Good pour, there is a little sweet and in general it just out performs others in it’s style.

Lightly carbonated honeyed brass color with a thin, viscous head. Soft grain nose, whiffs of honey malt, and feint crisp hopping. I am pleasantly surprised at this one. For the low ABV% and considering the style, this packs a fine amount of flavor. Honey malted, crisp grain finish with just enough balancing hops. Thoroughly well-balanced and sessionable. Ranks very highly on the shortlist of top amber lager. Perhaps the poorer sister to Yuengling lager. The sum is more than the parts. An enjoyable lager.
