3.38/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

.5L emptied into a Pokal.

A: Pours a light amber with a solid 2 finger head which is slow to receed to a trace ring. Sticky lace stays close to the top, leaving it's tracings on the upper third of the glass.

S: The smell is grassy sweet, with just a hint of skunk.

M: Crisp, very little carbonation, surprising, given the copious head and lace.

T: The Saaz hops dominate, lending an earthy resonance to the taste. There is a slightly bitter aftertaste which lingers long after this beer is gone.

D: This is quite similar to Pilsner Urquell, with the same strong hop presence. One of the better choices from the Ottakring Brewery. I could see myself spending another evening with a few of these.

Brewed under license in Hungary.

The colour is signal yellow; the big white head slowly sinks down to a firm uneven finger thick head leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is balanced with both sweet malt and bitter hops. There is a note of herbs and rye bread as well as some sweet citric notes (mandarins, oranges).

The taste is much sweeter than I had expected. Together with the medium-bitter hops and a fruity flavour, it tastes a little bit like cheap orange juice. Odd. There is a note of French loaf, and some non-bitter herbs. The aftertaste got those citric notes as well, but there is a mature note too, almost like it was stored in wooden casks. The bitterness in the aftertaste is low. The “2½” should be interpreted as “Interesting (3) yet unbalanced (2)”

The carbonation is a little bit below average, making it highly drinkable.

A Hungarian lager with a twist (of orange). I have had better ones.
