The bright gold Augustiner Edelstoff has understated notes of cut grass, herbs, and sweet malts that are balanced by a moderate bitterness. Its light body and delicate carbonation lead to a smooth mouthfeel that still finds a way of being crisp and lingering with a fantastically clean finish.
Munich’s oldest independent brewery, Augustiner-Bräu was founded in 1328 within the monastery of the Augustinian Brotherhood. Production has moved over the years as secularisation and privatisation took hold, but the old german brewery has maintained its prevalence as a foremost producer of quality german beer.
Augustiner Brewery is an important part of Munich's culture, owning one of the city’s largest beer gardens and hosting a tent at Oktoberfest. Their most popular beer is Augustiner Helles, an incredibly drinkable pale lager.
