2.78/5  rDev -11.2%

A: pale yellow colour, nice thick dense head. Loads of carbonation.

S: some hops, hint of malts, nothing bothersome

T: a bit sweet, almost no hops or malts.

M: too thin, and undercarbonated

O: the body and carbonation hurt this beer, because the taste isn't actually that bad

A mass produced Märzen beer - very cheap indeed. The drinkability of the beer in general is absolutely fine. However, the lack of uniqueness, puts the beer on average.

This beer is spread all over Austria. You can also get it in cans mostly abroad.

All in all,

there are better beers out there!

Most of the beers I had in Austria were quite similar as far as the Marzens. Most of the beers I had there were also quite drinkable but lacked uniqueness. This is a favorite among Grazers along with Puntigamer. They are decent beers and very drinkable and cheap but I wouldn't go out of my way to get one.

.33L emptied into a plastic Austrian Airlines cup.

A: Pours a clear gold with a creamy 1-finger head which receeds slowly to a thick ring. Sticky lacing throughout.

D: Everything was comparable, but with a better appearance, much more flavor and a better balance. I have a friend who is a stewardess, and she tells me that one's tastes become more enhanced when flying due to the modified atmosphere. The flavors of food and drinks are usually toned down to taste normal in a pressurized cabin. I'm not sure if they do this for beer, but I do know that there are special wines developed for flight service. Whatever the case, for my tastes, Gösser makes for a much better brew in the air than on the ground.

500ml can brought back from vienna. drank from a standard pint glass. an expiration date of june, 2010 is inked on the bottom of the can.

A- this one pours out a pale golden colored body with a large foamy white head. the head sticks around for a little bit and leaves behind small and solid rings of lacing.

S- hmmm seems like this one might be placed in the wrong category. sweet grainy malts. a little bit of the metallic scent you find when smelling an adjunct lager, and plenty of corn to go along with it.

T- semisweet bready malts and that awfully familiar metallic twang that you expect from an adjunct lager. that cream corn taste is in there also. a bit of noble hops at the end.

M- medium bodied with a high level of carbonation. probably too high.

D- im glad i got to try this beer that i wont be able to buy in this country. im also glad it wasnt very expensive. i think that the brewery calling this a marzen is a bit of a stretch.

I bought this beer from a nice lady in an Austrian Billa supermarket last weekend. Gosser is a typical Austrian beer you can get all around Tirol.

Poured in a normal glass the beers starts quit good with a very decent white head and lots of carbonation. When i look at it i think this is some extra carbonation they put in the bottle. Lacing is ok.

Smell is below average because of the light skunkyness of the beer.

For the rest a very average beer, i liked the Zipfer Urtyp much more. The taste gives me a flat feel.
