Awesome Pils by the Germans. It’s expensive as hell in the US, but it;’s a wonderful beer. Had it in Germany and here and obviously it’s a little fresher and nice over in Germany, but it’s not bad here either. Needs to be cold, but not frigid and easily sipped year round.. Great stuff.

Bottle. Finger of pure white pillowy head; crystal clear light yellow gold. Fresh hallerau-like hops; earthy and nice. Very fresh hoppy flavors, bit savory, but really refreshingly dry. Clean, light body.

Altra birra secondo me perfetta,oltre all’Edelstoff, dell’Augustiner. Si sente e tanto già dall’aroma il luppolo Saaz. E’ fresca e vivace come birra, estremamente beverina con quel tasso alcolico leggermente più elevato delle altre pils, ma che la completa.

Perfetto esercizio di stile per questa pils impeccabile marcata Augustiner. Complessa al palato, un pò erbacea, molto bevile. Non delude.

Big fluffy head that dissapears rather fast. Very pale color. Really nice pilsner malt aroma with a litle sulphur. Fresh malty taste with some fresh hops and a balanced bitterness.

On tap @ Augustiner, Munich - Germany. Gold with a medium persistence head, bitter and refreshing. A little bit hoppy with a hoppy finish too. Good pilsener.

Probably consumed a couple of these along side drink4satan at Euro Youth. I think I’d take this one over their helles most of the time. Light straw appearance with a fluffy white head. Nice hop aroma with more intensity than I would have thought. Good evergreen, mint, and spicy "noble" character. Just a little bit of sulfer. Light and hoppy in the mouth with more emphasis on hop flavor than bitterness. Just a light grainy malt sweetness. Light body with tight carbonation. Surprising hop character and very nice, almost piney aroma. Why did you have to step down to the 33cl bottle if you wanted this one? I hated that about pils in Munich; same price but less beer than the helles...

Consumed at some hostel nearby the Augustiner gardens in München. The pour is, well, what you would expect from a well-made, highly refined pilsener bier. A quickly fading head and a brilliant straw coloured body, akin to a budwieser, honestly, but in a beer tasting this fresh, this appearance is more than acceptable. It´s prefered. The nose is a little muted, but poured in its appropriate glass what wouldn´t be?! When are people going to wise up and just pour everything in snifters or tulips or bordeau glasses? Anywho, the characteristic awesomeness actually comes from a very low concentration of what seems to be DMS. It´s like thier house character. Aside from that, is grainy, with slightly zesty noble hop character. Appropriately prickly carbonation is matched with a thin, dry, slightly slick mouthfeel. Basically, the only reason I´m rating this is to pass time until they bleed thier glorious Helles out of a wood barrel. Righteous!
