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.

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.

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.

Poured a crystal light amber color with a half finger white head that dissipated quickly to none. Aroma was slight herbal and malt. Initial taste had a sourness to it but that did not return on the 2nd sip. Slightly sweet taste of malt with just a bit of hop bitterness followed by a light metallic taste. This is close to an American adjunct. Moderate to light body and carbonation.

Very clean body of pale pale pale yellow color. It has a nice bone white head on top that is not too big but not too small.

Smells appropriate to style. It has that grassy herbal hop aroma of a European lager. Slight malt/bread aromas coming through.

Very bready flavor from the get go. Somewhat bitter on the back end but much less than I expected. Very smooth and a bit dry. There's nothing crazy about it, but it is great. I can't find anything wrong with it except that it is kind of boring, but it's a lager.

Mouthfeel is very nice, not too full bodied. Extremely drinkable.

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.

For people that don't appreciate a good German lager this is the next best thing than drinking a lager at the Augustiner Brauhaus in Munich. Bright sweet bready biscuits and crisp is how I would describe this. Nothing better than a liter of this on a hot day.

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.

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.

pours a clear golden yellow color.

A white head that fades as soon as its poured.

Smells like a light lager. A little lagery/bready sweetness.

Mouthfeel is very well carbonated. gentle bubbling all the way across the mouth. A crisp finish

Taste is pretty nice. Bready sweetness but light. Crisp tasting and pretty good per style. I would drink this one again.
