11.2 oz bottle was poured into a goblet. That's all the hotel had for glassware.

Appearance: This beer poured a one dinger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Pilsner malts, some sweetness and some grassy and spicy hops.

Taste: Pretty much same as above.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, smooth, light bodied, refreshing, crisp, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty solid helles lager. Solid beer.

This should be good. Looks textbook: pale golden, lots of bubble, but just at first, perfect two finger fluffy head.
Smell of noble hops, herbs, spices and sweet grains.
Taste is awesome. Malts are grainy and sweet, but not too much, just enough. A low lemon zing, sweet (to dry) red apple. Spiciness really sells this beer, really tasty and packing a very nice unexpected hint of vanilla. German hoppy finish, herbal and bitter.
Not so much carbonation as you'd expect from the pour, it's smooth and chewy. Perfect mouthfeel.
This is a perfect example of a German lager, a benchmark for others. Really good.

A - Really nice golden color; white head which lingers for a considerable length. About three fingers, maybe a tad more, a leaves a light white residue along the sides. A very attractive Export.

S - A mix of malt and an almost vanilla-type smell; not very strong but pleasant.

T - The first sip starts out malty with a hint of vanilla, mellows towards the middle and towards the end you get a hint of bitter. It surprisingly got increasingly bitter towards the end, but not to the point of being unpleasant.

O - A good export; a solid pale lager with a little bit of an unexpected kick. Not as drinkable as HP's Muenchener Gold but certainly holds it own. I have heard (I think others echo this here) that it incomparably better vom Fass (from the tap); I will review further if I find results change once i get the chance.

Good looking glass of beer. Clear gold with a massive head of bright white froth. The head retention and lacing are exquisite. In the nose it's floral over lightly sweetish malt. The flavor brings out a bit more character with a little more bready graininess and less sweetness than the nose suggested, as well as more noble hops and a subtle note of apple-like fruitiness. Median bitterness is well-threaded through - a very round, balanced, and nicely polished lager. Medium bodied. Crisp and clean. Remarkably easy to drink.

Additional note: I tasted this side by side with the standard "hell" and didn't find much difference. It's just slightly darker. And also a touch fuller in character, but not by much, and at the same time a little less malty... ? More balanced, shall we say? So... I'd guess it's got a degree or so more Plato to it, a touch more hops for flavor, and just a hint of additional bitterness to balance that as well - OR, is it the same beer and just slightly more fermented? No, probably not.

There is a MASSIVE difference between tasting this beer from a wooden keg (2 places in Munich always offer this: the Augustiner Keller Biergarten and the Augustiner Braeustuben)!!! The wooden keg Edelstoff is indescribably outstanding, the bottle version is blah- and that's putting it mildly. Make the trip, try it from the wooden keg (as it was meant to be enjoyed) at the above mentioned locals and your taste buds will thank you for it. TRUST ME!
