3.68/5 rDev +15.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
appearance: can pour, into pint glass, flat bottomed, ..a deeper gold than some beers from similar brewers, nice head retention, just right amount of carb.
smell: light, hoppy note, fresh, grassy notes near the halfway mark, hard to smell thru the inch of foamy everlasting head.
taste: starts off decently sharp, quickly levels itself to a malt, and has various finishes depending on its temperature, ranging from slick when its warm, to very crisp on the colder side, great tasting beer for a cheaper import. has almost a pilsner finish. somewhat dry. but still refreshing.grains become more present as it warms to room
mouthfeel: snappy. very much like hieneken or becks, but with similar qualities to a stella, minus the corny sappy flavour iam not so fond of.
overall: very good. not one to be bragged about , but definatly on my regular go-to list
its easy drinking, and almost the perfect session beer, maybe a bit too foamy if anything
but that really depends on the pour i suppose. seems almost drafty. i enjoy this beer enough to choose it over numerous more pricey offerings. at under 4 bucks a tall can i could drink these all day. not the "finest beer from austria" as the can claims..but id say its a reasonable attempt for the cost. ..overall..get 3 and drink them on a hot day..see for yourself. its good stuff.

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.
