4/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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!

Bright gold, and clearer than expected with gushing jets of carbonation feeding a tight and durable ivory capstone.
Soup cracker nose, inched sweeter with a vague vanillin essense, and then drier whispers of lavender, milkthistle, and clover.
Staunchly malted up from with a saltine tint that migrates fully and puffier towards french bread. It gathers pear skins and vanilla near the middle, as it teeters sweeter. The finish full of green stems and light weedy bitterness.
The body is light and persistantly carbonated with a taut structure that ushers this effortlessly down the throat.
This is vastly impressive and amazingly fresh tasting.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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 )

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!

16.9 oz brown swing top with a very cool label.

Beer pours a lovely sunshine yellow with a nice, but not large head. Good lacing.

Beer smells nicely of spice, hops and a touch of biscuit.

The taste is very good. Excellent carbonation keeps things moving. Some spicy hop bite nicely modulated by malt sweetness. This is clearly a well made beer. Beer is nice and crisp, great mouthfeel. Perfect easy drinking session beer.

I had this one while in Innsbruck, but have not been able to find it in the States. I guess the brewery is very small and only has regional distribution. Thanks to fellow BA Johnfurbock for mailing me the samples. Just tasting it again takes me back to that wonderful vacation & town.

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.

woah, lightest looking beer i've seen since my last frat party (one month)
surprisingly big malt character with distinct lemon zing. very nice, actually
citrussy nose and good bitterness from the tettnager hops (as advertised on the bottle)

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.

.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.

An unfiltered lager from Austria. A nice golden color with white foam on top. Medium bodied brew with good lager malt base, creamy texture with some light hop bitterness. Aroma is light fruit and bready yeast. The malt has a nice chewiness to it, a tasty Hell. Unfiltered lager has a nice freshness to it.

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.

Seen this beer at Meyer Deli on Lincoln ave. in Chicago. The only place I've seen this beer.
Poured from a 1 pint .9 fluid oz. bottle.

Appearance- A bright lemon skin color sticks out the most. A minimal head retains well for the consumption. One bubble per second makes it way to the top.

Smell- Very light hopping invades the nostrils with hints of lemon zest and fresh cut grass.

Taste- Starts out with a tart malt flavor but moves to an organic, dirt-like bitterness. Somewhat citrusy hop flavoring also noted.

Mouthfeel- Very light and refreshing beer. A great cleanser of unwanted flavors from the palate. Very even and watery. This would be a perfect session beer.

I had this beer with a Burnin' Hot Beef Stick I picked up with at Binny's in Villa Park. This beer was a perfect fire extinguisher for the hot beef fire in my mouth.
