look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear medium golden color, with a modest white head, slight carbonation, and thin, fine lacing.

Aroma: Mildly sweet malt, pleasant spicy herbal hop aroma, and a faint note of skunk.

Taste: Opens with mildly tart malt, and understated hops. Midway through the taste, some citric notes appear. Finishes with a mildly bitter metallic hop note.

Mouth feel: Smooth, pleasant, and fairly full.

Drinkability/notes: Well-crafted example of a nondescript style.

Thanks to Max for hand-carrying this beer from Germany.

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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Mild skunk nose from the brown bottle. Cracker malt base, hops are leafy and noble.

Appearance: Bright clear pale yellow glass that gives no head.

Flavor: Skunk, hops are full and spicy. Malt is substantial given the style.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, a bit of grain in the texture.

Overall Impression: Malt Liquor? Maybe the German version. Solid beer none the less.

Big thanks to Max for hand carrying this back from Europe!

I picked this up without ever hearing about the beer and just thinking it had an interesting label.
It poured yellow with a decent white head and a slight sweet and malty smell that is not very common with American lagers.
The taste is light with some wheat & fruit undertones. No real aftertaste and an overall good experience. I plan on trying this again sometime soon.

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.

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.

Had a bottle of this this past weekend at the Sunset. No freshness date, so maybe I was taking a chance, but luckily the brown bottle was there to help. I have to say, this beer tasted mighty fresh. Clear light gold with a thin white head. Original impression of some sweet corn like notes in the aroma (not off-putting) later evolved into some more grape-skin like complexity, is that Munich Malt. Cool. Beer was light and darn easy to drink, a real session brew. Some sweetness, not over the top thank god, with some pleasant toast points in the finish.

Pours a pineapple yellow with an active carbonation. Very little head at all. Smell is somewhat floral with a spicy citrus background.

This brew has a light body which won't win you over in the mouthfeel department. Not much to say about flavor except that each drink ends with an astringent twang. Very steel like. Save your money for a beer that actually has some flavor.

The bottle I have is labeled "Light Malt Liquor," presumably due to retarded US (or Texas) labeling laws.

The beers pours a straw yellow color with a slight haze. Moderate head. The aroma is lightly malty with a hint of noble hops and wisp of sulfur from the yeast. The flavor shows a moderate maltiness with a grainy edge (that I like). There's a noticable amount of alcohol evident, which is likely why it had to be labeled a malt liquor, but it is not overwhelming or distracting. (I'd guess it's right around 6% ABV.) The hopping level is slightly above what many similar German beers show, although it isn't hoppy by American microbrew standards. The beer has a full mouthfeel, even when cold, and the malty/grainy character clings briefly in the aftertaste.

This is a beer I would go to if were going to have a few, but not a bunch, and was in the mood for a nice, quaffable lager. I could see it being a great pair with spicy Vietnamese or Thai food.

The small, fizzy, white, bubbly head dies fast, leaving nothing but a glass full of dirty gold liquid. Just a little hazy. There is some tangy fruit in the nose, with some nice schpoonk. A little corn syrup. Fruity in the front. Roasty crackers. It gets quite malty in the middle, finishing crisply bitter with some corn. It's a tasty, light lager. Enough malt and some nice grainsiness.

The aroma is a bit lemony, some pale malts, overall pretty light. Bright white head poured nice and thick, faded to a film eventually leaving a tiny bit of lace. Not much in the flavor department, maybe a little wheat with a splash of lemon. Very light body, clean finish. This would be very refreshing served nice and cold on a summer day, but otherwise just pick up a Busch and rub a lemon around the edge of the can.
