Poured a deep golden body with small head. Has a Sweet flower malty aroma, with touch of honey. Flavor sweet and malty again, full bodied, honeyish and pleasant, with just a hint of alcohol. Small carbonation with fine oily texture. Had a pleasant, not so long, somewhat sweet finish. All in all quite a tasty, good beer.

The first appearance in Austria's winterbrew season, this bottle emerged on the shelves of a Vienna supermarket in mid-October. Standard brown half liter with a blue, white and gold label featuring a mountain chalet covered in snow. No real ingredient information. Best before 4/30/07, I opened it on 11/5/06.
Pours a clear light amber hue with copper tones under a 2+ finger white head that fades fairly quickly but leaves some nice lace all the way down the glass and shows some decent contour while it lasts. Nice malty nose, sweet and grainy with a touch of spice. The mouth is light and very prickly. Mild malt taste with a strong spicey note - coriander and thyme. Nice hoppy edge, too, just on the piney side of metallic. There's also a hint of caramel, but the spices are the most noticeable characteristic until the pine bitter outlasts everything in the aftertaste. While this is no competition for the great winter seasonals of the U.S., it is quite a pleasant surprise - very enjoyable.

BBE 04-06. Great lasting head and a nice deep golden beer without any haze makte into a fine presentation. Nose is very malty with green backing of hops. Litle sweet maybe in the nose but megamalty and hardly any yeastester there. Full and rich taste also with this maltyness and going from maltsweet into a nice bitterness that IMO could be litle higher. Very clean brew but litle cardboardarome noticeable. Fine carbonisation and full malyness give it a smooth mouthfeel and IMO an enjoyable Märzen.

An interesting brew...an ice brewed lager with some characteristics common of lower rated winter warmers. Claims to have won the Monde gold medal three times; do they mean the French newspaper?
Aroma is a bit spicy but tame. Some sweeter malt notes come through as well. Body seems to be a bit thin, in appearance and feel. Head dissipates quickly. Color is a fried golden brown. Flavor is light and leans on the dry sweet size...faint notes of cinnamon? Its an interesting beer from a blue collar brewery (Puntigamer holds the blue collar union image, while somewhat conflicting, Goesser holds the white collar) who seems very tradition minded. Amongst the other offerings, its holds a drinkers interest. But I think they could be a bit more daring with the strength of flavors and alcohol as they don't make a bock and this beer debutes yearly in Herbstbockzeit.
