Austrians answer to watery tasting american beer. Golden colored pour with small sized white head which collapses rather fast. Weak malty aroma with a sweet malty finish. Very thin-bodied and watery with some sweet malt and a rather crude bitterness in the finish. Drinkable, but there are better ones out there. (312 characters)

33cl twist off bottle.

A: Lightish dullish gold, little head but reasonable rising carbonation.
S: Spaghetti O's like malt. Relatively weak in scent. Faintly horsey as well.
T: Very neutral taste. Not particularly flavorful or interesting. Between German and American Adjunct lagers in flavor.
M: Strangely though mildly astringent. Nice carbonation sting, smooth.
D: Boring but drinkable. (390 characters)

.5L emptied into a Pokal.

A: Pours a straw gold with a fluffy 1-finger white head which receeds to a thin ring. No lacing.

S: Sweet malt and light hops, most likely extract.

M: Medium-light bodied with good carbonation.

T: Sweet barley malt followed by a sprinkling of hops, slightly sweet at the end. Dry, tannic aftertaste.

D: An Austrian budget beer, but not hateful. This beer has a bit of a bad reputation due to it's popularity among the destitute of Vienna. I would call this a decent table beer, something to have with a normal meal. I might buy a case of these for the cellar, just for that reason. (612 characters)

I drank this beer after an Egger beer. The Egger disappointed me, this one did not.

Poured in the same glass as the Egger beer, a simple drinking glass this beer looks a lot better. A big white head which stays remarkeble good. Some nice carbonation in the glass.

The taste is one of a typical euro pale lager beer. Fresh with some light citrus notes of the hop.

Worth trying this one! (388 characters)

Yellow-greenish in color, with an average white foam, not long duration.
Malt, hops, and hints of honey in the smell.
Malty taste, but even a decent bitterness, balanced. Hints of honey, camomile, hay.
Drinkable.
Quite long bitterness in the aftetaste.
Honest. (265 characters)
