3.5/5 rDev +9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Fortunately, I got this on-tap near where it was brewed; much less impressed by samples in the US.
Appearance: light-golden color, with maybe a 1-finger ephemeral head.
Smell: not much due to the proximity of smoking Austrians. Definitely no skunk or sulfur, a little herbal.
Taste: slightly sweet, not much hop to speak of. Similar to the better Austrian lagers I've had. No bean or other hints of pasteurization.
Mouthfeel: light but not overly fizzy.
Drinkability: very much so.
I've had a hard time categorizing the Austrian beers because they're less hoppy than their German or Czech cousins. Pretty balanced light beer.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7/5 rDev +16%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Half litre bottle. A: Golden, clear, small fast fading
head, fairly lively looking. S: Subtle Saaz, enough
said. T: Subtle sweetness from the malt is
balanced out by hints of sour dough. M: Smooth,
low carbonation, slightly sticky texture. O: A cross
between a Munich Helles and a Czech Pilsner,
slightly forgettable but I wouldn’t refuse another if

Gosser pours from the 11.2 ounce bottle a cloudy yellow color with fairly thin foam. Some lacing reluctantly stuck to the glass and trailed the liquid surface down. Not the most attractive thing, but beer nonetheless. The aroma has a strong bread character--very doughy--coming from it's pale malt. This theme continues on the palate and is joined by a hint of sulfur and metallic. A carbonated finish is tinged with the slightest bitterness. This beer exceeded expectations, which were not very high to begin with.
