500 ml bottle labeled as "Roggen Gold".

It pours into my mug a deep clear gold with a big foamy white head. As it slowly recedes, it leaves some nice lacing. I have no idea what the status quo is on the appearance of this style but this looks very good.

The smell is your typical Helles lager. The rye gives a breadier, spicier tinge. The hops are very medicinal and grassy but pleasant.

The taste has a good balance of malt and hops. The hops are mild and slightly bitter. It is dryer than most lagers of this style. It is immensely drinkable.

This was inexpensive and surprisingly good. (592 characters)

Thanks to Volker at Gourmet Haus Staudt for this one.

500ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass, the beer appears a brilliant clear gold, topped by a rocky, frothy white head that rises over the top of the glass before slowly settling to an inch-thick cap. Fed by a steady stream of carbonation, the head retains for the entirety of my glass.

The aroma is bright and clean, faintly yeasty and grassy, only hinting at malted rye. As it warms, I get a whiff of white pepper, honey and sweet pilsner malt.

Bolder and spicier on the tongue, I get plenty of up-front rye bread, spice, pepper and earthy, leafy hops. Mid-palate has a strong mineral/hard water character at first, but this goes away in time, replaced by stronger flavors of spicy rye and bitter earthy hops. Carbonation is at an upper-moderate level, balancing the heaviness of the rye. The finish is dry, spicy and bitter, the flavor clean and the body crisp, even as the beer reaches room temperature.

This is a surprisingly rich and flavorful beer for a modest 4.9% alcohol, though the sharp flavor does stunt the drinkability somewhat; one bottle was plenty for me, and drinking a second would be a chore, though I did thoroughly enjoy it. (1,206 characters)

500 mL bottle, called Roggen Gold on the label, but with a little research it appears they are the same beer,

A: Pours a lightly turbid pale yellow. There is a frothy white head, good head retention with some nice rings of lace. Akin to a kellerbier in look for me.

S: Classic German nose, pilsner-esque - grassy noble hops and sourdough bread.

T: Not pilsner like on the tongue though. Big amounts of malt and some spice on the back end. Wheaty, grainy flavour.

M: Good crisp carbonation, though starts kind of flabby. Nice aftertaste, overall moderate medium body.

D: A nice beer, a rare style, I'd say this more of a Roggen-Helles hybrid. Would make a nice session beer for me. (685 characters)

I've only ever seen this beer in the Julius Meinl luxury grocery store in downtown Vienna, where it costs twice as much as local beers cost in other stores. Standard brown half liter bottle with a green and gold label featuring a small coat of arms under the name. Ingredients conform to the purity law. Best before 3/28/08, I opened it on 3/5/08.
Pours a clear pale amber under a one finger off-white head with nice retention and some very good lace lines. Nice strong nose of rye and wheat, with a hint of citrus. The mouth is quite heavy and very well carbonated - almost painfully prickly despite the weight. Very nice, very malty taste, with the rye quite prominent. Some mildly bitter hops lurk in the background, showing themselves plainly only right at the swallow then several seconds later at the back of the mouth. There's a slightly syrupy sweetness here, too, adding a nice touch to a very enjoyable brew. (919 characters)
