look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

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.

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.

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.

Found this beer on the shelf at random and never seen or heard of this one before. It has an old man on the label, and so far that is always the identifier on a label of a quality beer. This one continues that stereotype. For a Helles Lager it is nearly flawless. Nice 2 finger head and light body. Smell is bready, earthy and sweet. Taste is bready, sweet, crisp, basically everything you want in this light German style and it deliveries with perfection.

Highly recommend.
