Augustiner Bräu Lagerbier Hell

Good evening all. Today I received an order from Beers of Europe (http://www.beersofeurope.co.uk/), which prompted me to shake things up a bit and do a video review. I was never intending to do any video reviews on this blog, but the reason for that initial view was not out of lack of confidence in front of the camera but was actually due to a problem I've been wrestling with for the last 10 years or so. For those who don't know me, I have a moderate stammer that manifests itself as speech blocks and frequent moments of speech disfluency during speaking, which has lead to be feeling more comfortable describing things using text as opposed to through the spoken word. I've tried a couple of video reviews over the last months and was generally dissatisfied with my performance in them, but today I decided to give it a proper go and put up the results regardless. Based on this I apologise in advance for the potential lack of coherency, it is completely unintentional and genuinely cannot be helped. Also, the sign off was interrupted by my dog excitedly greeting a visitor, so I'll have to pick my moments more carefully next time! As for the lighting, I'll pick a better room or close the blind as the beer colour wasn't as apparent in retrospect. I hope you all enjoy the review and hopefully as I get more comfortable with this format the problem won't be as noticeable. The beer in question was Augustiner Bräu Lagerbier Hell, a Helles Lager from Augustiner-Bräu Wagner KG. Review in the video below....


Until next time....

  1. Fair play for having a crack at that! Not something I've ever done (or even got much experience of watching) but all good from this angle!

  2. I think your performance was fine. Informative. I hope you do more.
    Augustinerbrau Lager Hell happens to be my favourite beer. Can you recommend any similar beers that are just as good or better?
    Cheers

    1. Thanks for the feedback, there have been a few more video review posts since this one and I'm starting to enjoy them more! I must admit that I need to try more authentic Helles and Pilsner style beers, but Neumarkter Lammsbräu Pilsner is equally as good as Augustiner, and Camden Town Hells Lager and Windsor & Eton Republika are great examples of lagers produced in the UK
