Gosser, labeled as "Austria's Finest Beer" was one that I had missed at the LCBO in previous outings so I decided to pick it up today. My sample was canned in May of 2008 and marked for expiration a year later.
Out of the can it poured ok. A good two finger head but very carbonated..fizzing like a can of Coke ..then calmed down a little, followed by a recession into nothingness. Its appearance is pale and there is no head.. not even a hint that it existed minutes ago.
The smell is not great. Straw with some oddly sour notes. The taste isn't great either - just a very forgettable hoppy mess with a sour metallic finish. No one's writing home about this beer I don't think.
Mouthfeel is a bit watery and I struggled to finish my can so I'd rate drinkability quite low as well. Austria - I wonder how you feel about this being labeled as your finest.

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.
