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.

3.4/5 rDev +5.6%
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.
