The on tap version of Augustiner Hell is about as close to perfection as you find in a classic Munich larger. The medium carbonation and smoothness of the malt make it very drinkable. The lack of bitterness or sweetness makes it perfect by what it lacks. Serving was in an Augustiner specfic stange. I have tried the bottle and growler forms and the carbonation level changes slightly(transport, age) but the taste and mouthfeel are not really altered.

Serving type: on-tap

Picked it up in Berlin, and didn't have any clue on what I'd bought.
The bottle looked exciting and it was with it's golden colour and excellent taste.

A: Golden, normal head and quite strong carbonation.

S: Malt with notes of peppers. I could also smell a hop presence.

T: Extremely rich, new flavors and interesting notes appears all the time. A very culinary experience.

M: Quite thick in the mouth, it doesn't just slide by when you drink it, it satisfies your tongue.

O: One of the best, if not the best lager I've ever tried.

Definitely recommended!!

0.5 liter bottle had various times while visiting Munich. A really good lager with a lot of hop taste, but not overpowering. Smells like the taste, but possibly even hopped up a tad more than the taste. Light body, very smooth. Definitely the best Munich Helles. Probably why almost everyone I saw drinking a beer while walking around Munich had one of these in their hand.
