Pours a sparkling, clear yellow with a thin head and no lace. The aroma is lemony with a hint of bread. The flavor is lemony with vanilla, dough, and honey notes. It's mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Augustiner Brau Munchen Light Export Beer is a decent beer, recommended.

2.88/5  rDev -20%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

11.2 oz. bottle acquired in the greater Washington D.C. area after a pilsner tasting, unknown bottling date, poured into my Snallygaster mug, drank 11/6/13 over a half-hour.

A: 2/3 - straw yellow-golden coloration, high clarity (can both see or read through), thin white head quickly fizzled out into almost nothing, no alcohol legs

S: 7/12 - clean lager yeast aroma, adjuncts (corn and/or rice), pretty standard for a light adjunct/adjunct lager

T: 14/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's little-to-no bitterness; in the middle of the mouth, the adjunct and lager yeast flavors kick in; clean aftertaste

M: 2/5 - moderate carbonation, thin-bodied (essentially watery), little alcohol presence

O: 5/10 - don't understand the appeal of this beer at all, and don't even understand how it scored as high as an 81 on this site (I guess only because it's a German import); to me, it's in the same league as the typical American adjunct lagers with lots of the same characters - little-to-no flavor - no flaws but totally innocuous; if for whatever reason you're looking for a German lawnmower beer, this would be a decent choice, but I cannot imagine ever purchasing this

TOTAL = 30/50

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear straw color. There's a nice head here, a two finger white shade that's fluffy and moderately lasting. Tiny specks of lace are left on the glass, too.

S: There's a decent presence of sulfury German hops here. Allowing it to warm up will reveal touches of fruity esters, like apricot. Nothing to blow the mind, but decent for the style (I don't buy for a second this is a light lager, either).

T: Perhaps not as hoppy as the nose indicated...actually, it's rather sweet. I'd even call it too sweet - especially on the finish - but as it opens up, it does develop a faint hoppy bite on the back end. Moderately refined and smooth.

M: Decently light; not dry enough, though. For that reason, I don't feel the urge to down it in 5 seconds, which is the mark of a top-flight German lager.

O: I picked this up thinking it was Augustiner Hell...alas, no. Still, it's a decent lager - and an overpriced one, too. Simply for that, I won't buy again; unless of course I somehow mistake it for Augustiner Hell again.
