A benchmark for the style, great drinkability, you never get tired of it. Aroma is bread, hay, floral and doughy; taste is medium sweetness, with a light bitterness.

Not too much going on here to me. A mild dry hop profile dominates. Lacks the freshness or more complex flavors but a decent beer. Some nice pepperyness at the end here.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2017 0,3 litre Bottle at The Phoenix Club Anaheim. Clear yellow with little white head. Malty, Smooth.

Golden straw in color, with a quickly diminishing, snow-white head, this imparts an aroma thick with vanilla-caramel infused biscuits and a flavor equal to the headiness of that aroma. Rich with lightly sweet malts, the medium body is only slightly affected by the lively carbonation, staying fairly true to style. The finish is short with a quick, doughy back end; every bit as tasty as I'd require of the style.

Złociste piwo z piękną białą pianą. Aromat delikatny słodowy. Podobnie w smaku. Przyjemne piwo, bardziej dortmunder niż munchner hell

From memory, a translucent yellow appearance, foamy white head, sweet malty taste, hops dominanted by malty sweetness. Taste is too sweet and not bitter and heavy enough for a dortmunder export style. Love the Helles beer but can't get on with this one. My local shop orders both the Augustiner Helles and Edelstoff in the same quantities and the Helles sells out much sooner. I can see why.

Couleur paille bien limpide. Mousse généreuse mais moyennement tenace. Nez sur les grains. En bouche la carbo se montre d'emblée bien puissante. En terme de saveur c'est là encore sur les grains avec une pointe d'herbacé et un peu de coing, et une amertume assez prononcée. Très classique tout ça.

Aus der Flasche getrunken beim Döner in Adlershof. Für ein Export ziemlich mild, aber gut trinkbar.

On tap at Augustiner Klosterwirt, Munich. Light malt and some floral aroma. Sweet taste, quaffable.

Kavu (5119) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2017
0,5l bottle @ Tuulensuu. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts and a hint of urinal. What? Flavor is better. Clean grassy malts. As it should be. Decent.

Das Bier ist goldgelb und klar. Es ist recht süß, ziemlich malzig und wenig gehopft. Dabei ordentlich süffig. Gutes Alltagsbier.
