COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Augustiner (pronounced August-teen-er) Lager is a smooth amber lager that has no aftertaste. Due to the fact that it is suprisingly light, you can enjoy Augustiner all night long and not get filled up. Since its release in 1999, the reaction to Augustiner has been exceptional, allowing us to offer Augustiner in the 30-pack. If you are seeking a great tasting lager style beer, then Augustiner Amber Lager is the choice for you.

pours chestnut, clear, suggestive of a vienna. one sniff reveals that any such claim on the part of this beer would be criminally fradulent. the head was lax: i tried counting the bubbles since it didn't look like much of a challenge, but a few more showed up each time i poured more beer in the glass. i think i got up to 126. that's not very interesting i know, but it was a friggin' bungee jump compared to the beer itself. how can an amber beer have no aroma? my violent swirling and aggitating of the glass finally elicited from the beer a reluctant belch of some malt-like residue, a distant sour note and bready smell, like a slice of bread under a mattress. this effort was no more rewarding than the bubble counting frankly. the flavor "followed through" as they say, with a vacancy where the flavor should reside. some squatters in the form of inexplicable sweetness and poppy carbonation were noted--just for the police record. oh yeah, the label sucks too.

well made basic American standard lager. has a maltier quality to it that makes it somewhart like a vienna lager.

Not too shabby, and I hate Iron City. A very basic beer w/ a decent clean crisp taste.

not a big lager fan, but this was just average material....malt and hops were pretty balanced, just a big lack of flavors.

The folks at Pittsburgh Brewing have come up with a totally different 'feel' than the Iron City Beer they're famous for. Maybe that's a good thing. The label has sort of a Belgian touch, which is deceptive! Bottom line: don't go buying this like I did without knowing that it sucks. If you're gonna buy Augustiner Lager, know full well that it's a mediocre American Standard brew and be comfortable with that fact. If you're OK with that, this brew will go down easy.

It isn't bad. There is kind of a grape juice undertone that you only notice if you pay attention. It may be a little too thin, but other than that, it is pretty good.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2010 Not half as bad as i thought it would be, as it is brewed by the Pittsburgh Brewing Company, which makes such classics as Iron City. A fairly sweet taste and not much bitterness. I actually found it refreshing when i drank this in 90 degree weather. Better than a lot of other PA brewed lagers.

I got this at a place where there wasn't much choice (i.e BudMichelobCoors etc) so I was happy to try something new. As it was served to me, it looked good. Nice amber color. I smelled it and it smelled nice. A nice aroma. I then tasted it. Had very little flavor, I guess its 'smooth' which I have now come to realize means 'no flavor.' It's not bad, its just a typical beer. Its drinkable but its no major loss if you don't sample it.
