3.55/5 rDev -5.8%
Pours a clear straw color with a thin lacey head and light carbonation.
The nose has some grassy notes, but I seemed to be hit with quite a bit of honey and then a whispy malt/grain smell.
The taste had noce and balanced grain and honey notes. The finish was crisp and clean with no cloying.
Mouthfeel was nice and left me rather refreshed. A decent beet to have on a hot day.

From my notes in 2008. Poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A thin white had that has no retention. A light yellow colored beer. There is some carbonation.
Nose: Yeast, malt caramel, floral, orange, and a hint of sweetness.
Taste: A nice toasty caramelized malt with oranges, spice, and floral and some wood.
The mouth feel of the beer is carbonated astringent.
Overall: The body of the beer is medium light to a medium finish.

.5L swing-top emptied into a Pilsener.
A: Pours a pale gold with a fluffy 3-finger head (after a vigorous pour) which slowly receeds to a thick ring. Good lacing throughout.
S: Sweet malt and faint hops, citrus, earthy.
M: Light to medium body with nice, lively carbonation.
T: Sweet barley malt followed by mild, grassy Saaz hops. Citrusy at the back. A bit of extract in the astringent aftertaste.
D: Light and refreshing. Really encapsulates the style. Good solid brew from a brewery that specializes in this style. Definitely worth trying.

Opens with a soft pfftt
Pours golden/honey with a finger of pearl colored head. Average head retention & good lacing
S: Bready & grassy
T: Floral hops, slight breadyness, & a hint of diacetyl, this is a touch old perhaps, can't verify due to the indiscernible date coding... More of the same as this warms along with a slight fruittyness & some lemony & grassy hops. finishes with jammy sweetness, plus grassy hops
MF: Medium bodied, low carbonation
Drinks fairly easy, will try this again if I can get assurances of freshness ( or get in another state besides here with it's moronic beer laws )

Poured into a cylinder glass.
A: Clear, pale-golden color with a decent white head.
S: Faint aromas of pale malt and slightly herbal hops, perhaps noble varieties.
T: Nice, refreshing blend of the aforementioned pale malts and earthy hops. Each complements the other very well.
M: Lighter mouthfeel, but not thin. Very good carbonation and a nice, clean finish.
D: Once could easily throw several of these back, especially on a hot day at a cook-out.
Overall, a nicely-blended, no-frills kind of beer from Austria. It plays to its strengths very well, and thus makes it a terrific choice for a session or hanging-out-with-friends beer. A good gateway brew as well. Well done!

Poured from a 0.5l bottle into a 0.5l branded Pilsner Urquell pilsner glass.
Appearance: Translucent and yellow. Thin, foamy head that dissipates quickly.
Smell: Flowery scents with grassy and hoppy notes at the end.
Taste: Hoppy and grassy; tastes pretty much like it smells. A bit of bitterness towards the end in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Smooth with almost no detectable carbonation; very pleasant.
Drinkability: A great helles. One of the best that I've had so far.

Poured this at a good cool, but not cold temperature. Had a nice, big, fluffy, textured head with some lace. Smell is malty sweet, mildly hoppy, and grassy. Flavor is the same but with a little butter flavor. Nice deep golden brass amber color. Good carbonation. Could be a session beer. Pleasant finish.

Found in a Vienna supermarket, the brown 1/2 liter swing-top bottle features a dark green and gold label featuring an etching of a farmer enjoying the view from his wheatfield. Above the name is the silhoutte of someone riding a bull. Ingredients conform to the purity law. Best before 3/28/07, I opened it on 12/10/06.
Pours a clear pale gold under a 1/2 finger white head that manages to linger a bit, then enters a new life as collar and clumps of film that stick around a long time. No lace, however. The nose is full of sweet bready malt and a hint of floral spices. The mouth is light and very prickly. A sweet, almost sugary malt opening leads off, with plenty of barley. The hops emerge slowly but surely, starting fresh and spicey, then developing into espresso bitter in the finish. The bitter blends nicely with the grain in the aftertaste, inviting further sips. Nicely done!

Drank a few of these in Bermuda Brau in Wien, Austria
Pale straw colour with what looks to be moderate carbonation. 2" rocky head with disipates rather quickly.
Moderately strong malty aroma, and slightly sweet. Ultimately one dimensional.
Malty flavour. Decent, but also a bit boring and one dimensional. Not to say that I expected to be blown away by a pale lager.
Decently light and smooth mouthfeel, but overly carbonated.
Nothing offensive about this one. Just very similar to many of the beers I've had in this trip.... it certainly does not stand out.
By the way, I wholeheartedly agree with Buckeye Nation that this should be classified as a Helles.

Appearance- light gold. Very beautiful. Mouth began to water at the appearance of this brew. And this my friends believe in it or not, half the battle a brewer strives to achieve.
Smell- buttery smooth hops.
Taste- sweet and rusty. Also lightly sour and bitter. A very pretty innocently intricate flavor
Mouthfeel- light and watery.
Drinkability- very easy to drink. Ran it to no discomfort at all.
A very good fragile quencher.
