4.19/5  rDev +15.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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.

Excellent... got this from Kunda (Global Village Imports) in King of Prussia, PA, USA. Beer is well balanced, very tasty, non-offensive to even the pickiest.

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.

Pale yellow in color with average head and hardly any lacing. Aroma is bready and malty. A little citrus, bread and a very thin body. Extra crisp finish..

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.

served cold and poured into a pint glass.

i actually began and ended the night with this one. a nice little light beer to get me in the mood. pours out a light amber with nice head of white that managed to leave some good lacing down the glass throughout the session. smooth and easy on the palate in every way with light grassy notes, malty balance that is just sweet enough, a light and easy going feel and smooth, clean finish that has just a hint of dryness to it..

A-Pale yellow, crystal clear. Huge white head.

S-Sulfur from the yeast. Light malt. No hops.

T-Grainy with a slight saccarine sweetness. Very low hop bitterness. No hop flavor. More sulfur.

M-Fairly dry. Medium carbonation. Very light on the palate. Nice.

D-This could be a great session beer (or maybe is before it makes its trip across the Atlantic), but there is a slight sweetness that makes this beer stick around on the palate too long.

I always see this beer and its 16 bucks a six pack. I bought one.

It pours a nice one finger head, pale sun yellow.

Smells like the bavarian wheat fields in which it was grown. Hops, malt, is good.

Tastes very sweet, again with the hops and malt. Dont know where one ends and the other begins thom yorke...

Very smooth aftertaste, full bodied.

This beer is better than Das Boot.
