Augustiner Edelstoff is a traditional beer from Munich Germany. The Augustiner brewery is the oldest in Munich. It was founded in the year 1328 by monks at the gates of the city. In 1805 the government took the brewery and it goes private. Joseph Wagner was the best known head of Augustiner Bräu. He makes the beer famous and his initials are still in the company logo.
Within the last years Augustiner became famous even beyond the frontiers of Bavaria. You can get the well known Lager Hell in every corner shop from Hamburg to Berlin. It is kind of an In-Beer now. Fresh & mild!
In comparison to the Lager Hell the Augustiner Edelstoff is a little bit more brawny. It is a mild and spicy beer with a light yellow color. A little bit malty, sweet and very very pleasant to drink. You directly want a second one!
The Edelstoff is a very proper Export Beer. I highly recommend to test a fresh tapped Augustiner in the Biergarten. Or pour the bottle in a jug or a big schooner glass.
