I am an American who recently returned from 13 months in Munich. I am having withdrawals from this beer! It is simply the best beer I have ever had, and my job takes me all over the world. If you have a chance to try it, you will not be disappointed! TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 28, 2006
One beer that is a must try for anyone who loves beer is their Augustiner Brau Helles. This beer pours at a number of locations in Munich, and I enjoyed this beer at the Augustiner Grossgaststatten in downtown Munich. This is a wonderfully grand old beer hall, with two massive vaulted dining spaces, one side the restaurant, the other the pub side. Of all the beer halls I visited in Germany, this one was one of my favorites, and it is strikingly beautiful inside, and out. It was here after a somber and emotional day trip out to the concentration camp of Dachau, my friend and I decided to have a hearty meal, and some great beers. Seeing that the Grossgastatatten is Augustiner Brau’s premiere Munich outlet, you will find the full range of Augustiner Brau beers pouring. And if you wait until 6pm or later, the Helles will be poured vom holzfass or freshly tapped from a wooden barrel.
Augustiner Brau Helles pours to a beautiful, bright, golden color with a thick and creamy bright white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The clarity of this beer is amazing, as is the fresh, crisp, dry, pale malt aroma balanced with the perfect amount of grassy hop aroma. The palate is fresh and clean with lots of crisp pale malt flavor on a smooth and polished body. Augustiner Brau Helles finishes with more crisp malt flavor, then ends with the perfect amount of hop bitterness to balance this beer.
This beer is a flawless example of Helles, and is the most impressive Helles I have ever tasted. A true bench mark example of the style, and a true master piece. It takes great skill to brew a lager of this caliber, and this beer is so fresh, crisp, and drinkable, you could drain liters of this beer at will. I enjoyed a liter of this beer with a wonderful, hearty meal of liver dumpling soup, followed by saurbraten, red cabbage, and spaetzle. If you ever get to Munich, any one of Augustiner Brau’s locations is a must visit, and their Helles, is a must try. This is a world class beer, and is one of the greatest beers being brewed today. grischa (1) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2006 does not count
Augustiner Helles is the best clear beer in the world. Tastewise only surpassed by Weissbier, it is more drinkable and less filling. Still brewed in wooden barrels, by a family owned brewery, qualities you can taste!
