Best I can tell, it has a medium-clear copper color (poured in an opaque litre stein-krug). Has a rich, foamy, white head which thins down to a lasting 1/4" layer, with excellent lacing! Nose is understated, with some mild maltiness, a bit toasty. Way too mild, though. Quite good body, and a verry nice smoothness over the tongue! Decent malt flavor, with some caramel... a little toasty, bready.... a hint of some nice hops at the end. Very nice bier!!

I bought a case of this beer while in Salzburg

Pours golden with soft large head that slowly dissipates to thin and rather long lasting ring of foam and full of carbonation bubbles. Leaves patchy lacing. Aroma is straw malt with distant grassy hops. Taste is gentle lemony hops with some light sweetish malt and light bittersweet aftertaste. Feels very refreshing. Mouthfeel is quite thick, it has creamy feel with average carbonation.

Very good one, the only thing I regret is that I was driving and could not try it on tap.

.5l on tap on tap at the fabulous braurei and served in a ceramic mug.

A white sudsy head comes up and a bit over the rim, adding unnecessary encouragement to take a sip immediately. Golden, clear liquid underneath the rapidly diminshing head.
A fine aroma of malt and baked bread with a touch of hops and a hint of alcohol.
The taste is similar, although the hops are much more present, even from the start, and become dominant by the finish. Nonetheless, there's a good bit of toasted malt flavor in the finish.
M: near medium body and medium+ carbonation.
O: excellent, probably world-class version of the style.

I had this beer on a trip to Austria and it was very nice.

The beer is served in big stonewear mugs that you have to wash your self. You then go the pouring station and they serve you directly out of big wooden barrels. It takes them like 3 seconds to fill a liter (very impressive). This a very attractive old building and is very interesting in it own right.

The beer is very malty and well within style. You can drink a lot of this and not get hungover. It is very fresh and almost smelled like fresh bread. Goes great with the pretzels!

We were there in the fall and sat in their wonderful beer garden that is filled with hazelnut trees (watch out for falling nuts!). This is a great place in a a really neat city. Do your self a favor and visit if you are anywhere near here!!

If you ever have the privilege of visiting Salzburg, this is the must-try beer. If you have never been to a Biergarten before, expect hundreds of people, huge ceramic mugs, wooden barrels on tap, and lots of small food stands. You won't find something like this in the Americas.

Appearance: Impressive head, color is difficult to determine in the ceramic mug, but looked fairly cloudy and golden, definitely not too pale or sickly looking.

Smell: Yeasty and bready. Hops are very subtle and definitely do not dominate.

Taste: Follows the nose, a fresh-baked bready taste with medium-light body. A solid brew, perfect in the liter mug for a solid hour or two of socializing over beer with your companions, because it is neither overpowering nor unpleasant. Definitely makes you want to come back for another liter, if you have the time.

Mouthfeel: Fairly smooth, not overly carbonated so as to destroy the palate, but not flat and certainly not disappointing.

Overall one of my favorite beer experiences. The setting is definitely part of the experience, but the beer is what makes you want to come back for more. Prost!

Drank this beer at the Monastery in Salzburg, Austria.

It is served in a clay stein that you must rinse before you wait in line to be served. After waiting in line the server (a monk?) will fill your glass from a huge wooden barrel. Awesome.

The appearance was darker than I though it would be. It had a good sized head that lingered for a long time.

The beer had a strong malty smell. It had a bread like smell. It smelled extremely fresh.

The taste was once again malty and fresh. It was a sweet malt without much hoppiness. It had a slight nutty taste.

The mouth feel could have been better. It was slightly watery I though.

This beer is soooo drinkable. I had more liters than I should have and my wife even finished two.

I hope that I am back at this place at sometime in my life because it was a wonderful experience.

On a recent visit to Salzburg I made a Sunday afternoon trek to the monastery/beer garden. The whole experience was about a close to religion as I get. One of my top 20 beer experiences and at my age that is saying a lot. The Marzen style beer right form the barrel was spectacular, but the entire experience on a sunny day, watching them tap the barrels and filling the steins made for a great afternoon.

THis looked to be a slightly darker brown/gold but I couldn't tell as it was served in a ceramic krug. Foamy white head had great retention and left excellent lacing.
Sweet and caramel malts came out in the nose as well as the taste, although it wasn't overpowering. Maybe some mild spice and grain. Finally that semi-buttery flavor/feel I expect from a Märzen. Mild carbonatinon but sweet, smooth and coating the whole time. Once agian very mild but very good; a great balance and a fantastic take on a beer that swear is one of the hardest to get right; then again, they've been doing this since 1621.

I've been to Salzburg three times, and it took me the third trip to have enough time to find this place. It's off the beaten path, but well worth the trek.

After paying at the counter and rinsing out the ceramic liter stein, I got a glimpse of the golden color as it flowed from the tap. My wife and I found a table in the large beer garden outside.

A light, pleasant scent filled my nose as I brought the mug to my mouth, and from the first sip, it was crisp and refreshing. For as light as it seemed, it had quite a full flavor. It was the perfect companion for the soft pretzels we purchased, but it is not a beer in need of such. It's also a beer that calls you back for more. I wound up buying a 6-pack of bottles to take along for the rest of our trip as I was so impressed.

Hi,

We were lucky enough to pass by this brewery-monastery while visiting Salzburg.

First, the place is an absolute must try.

It is settled in a monastery, there are four huge drinking rooms with food stands.

You first rince a mug in a fountain than they serve you a liter from a wooden barrel.

Awesome experience, great ambiance.

As for the beer, it is mostly a very drinkable refreshing one.

The experience might have biased my opinion, but the beer is at least as fresh as possible and the experience so authentic.

By the way Austria is a dream destination for any beer drinker and food lover!
