4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a golden colored beer, with a big, fluffy white head.
Smells of young straw, wet grass, a hint of dried wheat, accompanied by toffee and white bread dough. Pretty fulfilling on the nose, due to a herbal hop crispness which blends perfectly into the rustic, bright foundation of the beer.
Has a lively carbonation, while the beer manages to produce a crisp, entertaining flavor profile, showcasing a light, refreshing body.
Tastes of straw right from the beginning, together with wet grass, forest leaves and an effervescent, lively peak. Turns a tad thinner after the swallow, showcasing a stony mineral quality, white bread dough, rich wheat and a hint of toffee. Finishes sweeter, with more toffee on the tongue, balanced by a nice, late noble hop dryness.
Perfect example of this style. I could not stop taking big gulps of this since it is truly refreshing while providing a bright, enjoyable taste of wheat and straw, rounded out by a great hop crispness.

On tap, Augustiner am Platz, having arrived in town for work the day after the Oktoberfest finished...oops. Golden yellow, malty and white bread, hint of bitterness in a brief finish, slightly menacing undertone of booze. Ok. Possibly controversially I don’t find any of the Augustiner beers quite what they are often cracked up to be...

Aroma of grass and some toasty malt but also vomit. (Like in the Helles of Augustiner, but less). Taste is sweetness and sourness. Some bitterness as well. Well combined. Mouthfeel is kind of marshmallowy. Rather sweet finish. Not bad.
