4.6/5  rDev +28.1%

Super pale straw yellow in color. Tiny bubbles of carbonation rising to the surface.

Fluffy white head. Sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smells fruity and a bit wine- like. No sulphur.

Tastes superb. This is a very delicate beer that was brewed to absolute perfection. No sulphur in the nose or mouth. Not even a hint of diacetyl.

Sweet mouthfeel. Slightly chewy but with a crisp, clean finish.

Give me a cold case of this an a warm summer day and I'm in heaven.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a .5l stein.

Appearance: Clear as day light orange and yellow color. It yeilded a small 1 finger head that dissapated quickly but carried along some moderate lacing along the glass. Lots of bubbles at the bottom of the glass.

Smell: Amazing freshness comming through with citrusy peach smelling aromas. Nice fresh wheat and hops aromas comming through. Basically it smells like the freshest beer you have smelled.

Taste: Delicious. I love this beer. Its so fresh tasting its like your drinking it right out of the keg in Germany. Beautiful wheaty, almost hefeweizen like taste. Nice citrus and even a little bit of white grape flavors comming through. Mild sweetness enhanced with fresh tastes. Im blown away still at how much flavor its got for such a light colored beer, especially since its claimed to be the american "Light" export at 5.7%.

Mouthfeel: A little bit too carbonated. Lots and lots of bubbles. Hate to say it but its reminding me of budlight. Could definately benefit from letting it sit for a couple minutes before you start drinking. Its a light, lager style beer thats refreshing and reminds me of warmer weather but it can definately stand up during colder months.

Drinkability: Of course, its a light beer but its got a hidden 5+ almost 6% alcohol so its easy to session but it can catch us quick. Ive been drinking this stuff since i got back from Oktoberfest but its nothing like the Augustiner you get in germany. Still, nice beer with amazing flavors.

Huge fan of the German beers. This one is one of my favorites. Great for drinking on a hot summer day...mmm.

Augustiner Helles is considered the favorite local beer in munich, and if you are ever in town, skip the Hofbrauhaus (with its loads of American tourists) and instead go to the Augustiner Garten. Much better atmosphere and much better beer.

Just great overall.

Good lager smell with small particles of yeast floating throughout the bottle. Very healthy level of carbonation with a clean and smooth mouth feel. Nothing extraordinary here but an overall great refreshing German lager. Best served ice cold on a hot day.

4.08/5  rDev +13.6%

clear straw color, leaves a ring and some lace. bottle doesn't say export, says edelstoff

smell is of fresh grain and a fruity grassiness. the freshness is nice and the fruitiness unexpected. smells similar to a kolsch.

flavor like the smell, very fruity for a lager. fresh grapes, bright, somewhat crisp but slightly sweet finish.

a lighter bodied beer with abundant carbonation.

sure tastes light and refreshing for 5.7% abv. too bad there's that much alcohol. if this were 4 or so % would be a great summer guzzler.

Well, a new favorite. Very enjoyable German Lager. Though most are average, this is a standout. Citrus and herbal aromas abound from an almost sparkling carbonation, and through a bleached white 1/2" head. The hops make a better than usual presence--noble in quality. Tastes moderately malty and not as grainy as expected. No real vegitol flavors detected at all. Instead, a lemony, grapefruity, orange peel like flavor abounds. Condensed with solid hop bittering makes for a very clean, crisp and smooth beer. The body is moderate to light, not to weigh too heavily on the mouth. This is a very good beer for the style.

I really enjoy this beer. It has a nice color, and pours easy with a half inch of head. Nice color with moderate carbonation. I prefer it over the original Weihenstephaner, Hofbrau, or Spaten. Dry, crisp, malty,and biscuity taste. It goes down smooth with a pleasant finish with no after taste. Great session lager

Augustiner Brau Munchen - Munich Light Export

Nice, traditional label. It pours a clear golden body beneath a bright white head of froth. The head retention is good, and the lacing about the glass is average.

In the nose it's malty with soft hop notes intertwined. They're floral and softly grassy.

The flavor reveals more character than the nose suggests, and it's clear that the malt is Munich malt. It's richly flavored, and nicely bready. The hops return, delivering more spice than floral or grassy character. It's perfectly balanced, and very nicely rounded, delivering all of its components throughout. The finish is dry, but the maltiness lingers behind, reminding you to take another sip.

In the mouth it's medium bodied with a fine-bubbled median carbonation that caresses the tongue.

Remarkably drinkable, this is a soft and smooth lager that I can't imagine anyone passing up - even those who love the more bitter and hoppy German lagers from the north.
