Augustiner-Bräu Wagner KG - Edelstoff

Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 12 oz. bottle, poured into a fluted glass

Edelstoff is a classic Munich Helles Lager, from Augustiner-Bräu. It pours a very-light yellowy-golden straw and is highly carbonated with tons of active carbonation. The head is a large fluffy white foam with a wispy lightness. The retention is solid as the foam slowly departs with a light crackling, leaving thin, but consistent, lacing behind. The nose is sweet and malty with white grape juice aroma and a slight musty edge. The beer is very lagery with light hops.

The mouthfeel is crisp and airy. Light, sweet, golden malts seem very fresh on the front palate. The green grapes come through from the nose with a clear presence and a slight tartness. The hoping is very light with only a kiss of bitterness. The emphasis is clearly on the malts. The finish is crisp and very refreshing.

Final Verdict: B
