3.63/5 rDev +3.1%
Polished brass with puffy white head that crusts and trails nicely.
Fresh grain and bright floral hops on the nose.
Proofing bread dough with thin honey, then mild grassy and light cumin hops.
Ginger ale finish and weak linger.
Thin, round, slight cling, clean.
Not really a Marzen or Helles by any stretch, more like an all-malt American. Malty, perfumed, pleasant, easy, watery, hopless and forgettable. The best Austrian lager I've tasted, which is not necessarily a compliment.

On tap at the Kaiserhof Restaurant in San Diego where they call this "Stiegl Premium Lager." Crystal clear golden color in the mug. Average head doesn't stick around long. Very sparkly and sharp in the mouth.
An odd perfumey flavor seems to be the main sensation. That slightly spicy aroma enlivens this just a little. Some faint tang of hops along with that spicy mystery taste is actually the best feature. No malt flavor that I can detect.
This may be a little better than Serbian or Romanian lagers. You could pour this down your gullet for a thirst quencher, but even Heineken has more flavor.

Poured from a 1pt .9 fl oz can into a pint glass. Reviewed live.
A- One finger rather flimsy white head, low retention, nice carbonation. Very unimpressive watery look, crystal clarity, thin golden color.
S- Smell is a vast improvement over the appearance. Golden malts, marshmallows.
T- Warm Marzen flavor. Nice malts and some golden hops. Not packing a huge punch, but tasty.
M- Medium bodied and creamy sort of feel.
O- Despite the atrocious look, this is a passable brew.

330 ml bottle, part of a Beers Of The World package. Ingredients are water, barley malt and hops, with an ABV of 4,9%. Poured into my pokal glass.
To begin with the bottle, I really liked the minimal and old fashioned label. No gender specified on the front label but on the back it says "Stiegl-Goldbrau" and in english "A wonderful refreshing Salzburg lager beer". Colour is deep golden yellow, with two fingers of white head. Average retention, leaves light lacing behind. Minimal activity in the glass.
Very malty on the nose, smells like a typical lager, and actually on the back label is referred to as a lager. Nevertheless, nice smell, makes you thirsty for the beer.
NIce taste too, mostly on the malty side again. Very slighty bitter on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body and average carboantion. Dry on the palate.
Nice beer, nothing to write at home about, but pleasanty drinkable. I don't have any other austrian beer examples to compare, but I find it quite good.

Ontap at Siegi's in Tulsa.
A - Pours a clear golden body, with a stark white head provides excellent lacing and tight spiderweb lacing patterns.
S - Clean grain, very yeasty, lightly sweet and fruity with a touch of grassy hops.
T - Grainy malt, lager yeast, honey, nice and fruity, earthy noble hops provide a clean bitterness. The finish is crisp and clean with a fruity aftertaste.
M - Thicker body, medium carbonation, very smooth with a crisp finish.
I'm reviewing this as a Helles Lager. Not sure why this is under the Oktoberfest style on here. Very bright and traditional flavors with incredible balance. I could have easily had 2 liters of this stuff.

11.2 ounce green bottle with red and beige label (different look than BA photo).
Appearance - Bright. Golden. Small head that disappates quickly. No lacing to speak of.
Smell - Sourdough bread. Nice.
Taste - Citrus (lime?). Raw almonds.
Mouth - A bit of a buttery feel.
Overall - I don't mean this as a slam but this beer taste a bit like Corona. The beer is nice but lacks character.

.5l mug ontap at Stieglkeller Salzburg (highly recommended venue)
Crystal clear and sparkling with a tremendous quantity of bubbles rising to a durable off-white head. The mug gets nicely coated with varied lacing.
Aroma of earthy hops, yeast, wet bread, toast and malt.
The flavor follows suit, although eding with a solid hop finish that is notably bitter.
M: crisp and lively but, despite appearances, not over-carbonated.
O: very nice if unremarkable beer. Good with food. I like that it is a bit more hoppy and bitter than expected.
