Flavors are very hop forward big spruce like hop bitterness gin like dry qualities. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Very nice pilsner. FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2006
Greatest pils i tasted in a long time. Yellow colour with a medium mostly lasting head. Not much aroma but a powerful hoppy taste and finish. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 27, 2004
On tap at the original haus in Munich. Fantastic bier! Crisp and true to style. Good hop character with a delicious after-bite. Bright yellow in color, whit head and a solvency that vanquishes the mustard served mit der weissen sausages. Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2007
Light yellow colored, medium sized white head. Strongly hopped and floral pils aroma, reminds me of some Swedish pilsners, I mean these good ones. Medium bodied. Flavor is also excellent with this same floral-yeasty sweetness, which is cut strongly by bitter hops. Hops last in aftertaste with lemon. Again I have to say, Augustiner is one of my favourite breweries.

I could personally nominate this one for numerous awards because it was, honestly, the finest example of a Deutsch Pilsner I have ever tasted. It poured with excitement, the flurry of well trapped carbonation arousing a magnificent fluffy white crest that stabilised a good 2 inches thick and drabbed a wickedly fine lace down the glass. The body - the part I’m more interested in - a sparkling, dazzling yellow straw. Upon ordering this I appeared quite effeminate in light of our hosts - some Irish backpackers out for a lark - yet by the end we seemed to be quaffing a bottle each on the side of our steins of Vollbier. Aroma is so tight, so clean, and full of fresh cut flowers, finely chopped mint leaves, a heavy dose of fresh cracked pepper and a subtle mineral water edge. Dry, spicy and predominately hoppy palate, so delicate it could go up against the finest sparkling waters. A light showing of pine litters some pale malts that sit comfortably upfront. A sour edge grips, a heavy spice tails and some naughty hops wreak havoc on the swallow. Quite bitter, it draws in a surmountable amount of saliva making each sip need a follow up gulp. It finishes so clean, so bitter and so fresh it could pass as mouth-wash for desperate men needing a bit of Dutch courage - or in this case Deutsch courage. This stuck in my mind as the best, most balanced and most easily quaffable pilsners out there. It is worth a try, I don’t think notes quite describe just how good it is. Cheers!!!
12 ounce bottle straight from Munich via my mother-in-law in the new funky sam adams glass. Golden with lasting head and lace. Noble hop and grain aroma. Grainy grassy clean flavor with nice hoppy undercurrent ad finish. Nothing spectacular, but well-mathced with my Peking Meat Sauce with Noodles.
