COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Augustiner (pronounced August-teen-er) Lager is a smooth amber lager that has no aftertaste. Due to the fact that it is suprisingly light, you can enjoy Augustiner all night long and not get filled up. Since its release in 1999, the reaction to Augustiner has been exceptional, allowing us to offer Augustiner in the 30-pack. If you are seeking a great tasting lager style beer, then Augustiner Amber Lager is the choice for you.

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.

Aroma: Light lager aroma with a good malt backing.
Appearance: Light Amber in color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor: Light lager flavoring the hops and alt where balanced very well.
Palate: Dry finish, with a decent Mouthfeel.
Overall: A very nice easy drinking beer. Perfect for those hot days mowing the lawn.

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.

Deep golden in color, a medium white head with small tight bubbles. Mild toasted malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a full malt body.

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.
