I had this beer when I was in Germany. Everyone orders and Augustiner at the bar and as soon as you have one, you'll find out why. My favorite beer by far, just wish i could find it in PA.

A perfect example of the style. I enjoyed fresh in Munich and it was hands down the best helles in town. You just can't drink enough!

Craft ales are more my thing these days but this is an excellent Helles style lager. 50 cl bottle and well done to Obrien's Lucan off licence for stocking this in Ireland. Love to have a pint off this in Munich some day.

Pours a straw color with light head and little lacing. Basically what you would expect from the style. Nose is...missing. Almost no odor, just the lightest of citrusy malt. Flavor is crisp light malt, basically just what you want from this style. Super drinkability. Something that would go down go easy in a Munich beer garden.

Far and away my favorite helles. Always enjoy a couple of liters in Munich and the honeymoon visit was no exception. Perfect blend of that beautiful biscuity malt and the crisp clean hops, this is what a lager should be.
