2.65/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: bright with a pale golden color. The head is white, kind of low and frothy with an impaired retention.
Aroma: sweet, grainy and very malty. Very distant citrus notes.
Taste: again grains and lots of malts.
Mouthfeel: smooth, average carbonation, low alcoholic strength and light body.
Finish: not very long, almost sweet all the way with only a hint of bitterness when it is almost fading.
Overall: very weak on the hops. Missed the bitterness of a good pale lager. Not very refreshing. I looked for the auto-proclaimed sharp tang but could not find it.

Serving type: bottle

3.03/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Spent a few days in Austria and all the bartenders kept telling me to get this beer or that beer as you don't want a Gosser. After day 3 I took the plunge. Plunge equaling 2 euros, so more of a dip. This poured a faint yellow color with little head. Decent carbonation. The smell was ...there was no smell. After a few sips I realized this was the the faint lagers I am used to buying 36 of for $20 in the US. Nothing inspiring by this beer, but nothing terrible. Just a decent lite beer that is perfect on a hot day or when you want something not high in alcohol. Kind of a PBR visiting Austria

Serving type: on-tap

3.38/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle poured into a Nonic glass.

Appearance- Bright straw-orange-yellow color, very crisp and clear looking, typical of the stye. But a small head descended into a nice crown of foam on the beer that retained throught. I liked that. Light lacing held to the glass.

Smell- Very Lager, very grain, with possible subtle fruity undertones.

Taste= Nice and flavorful. To me most Euro Lagers tend to be a little boring, but this is nice and refreshing with still remaining a fuller flavor.

Overall- Seems like a decent beer to drink on hot summer day, but nothing stellar here.
