.5L on tap at the fabulous braurei and served in a ceramic mug.

A white sudsy head comes up and a bit over the rim, adding unnecessary encouragement to take a sip immediately. Golden, clear liquid underneath the rapidly diminishing head.
A fine aroma of malt and baked bread with a touch of hops and a hint of alcohol.
The taste is similar, although the hops are much more present, even from the start, and become dominant by the finish. Nonetheless, there's a good bit of toasted malt flavor in the finish.
M: near medium body and medium+ carbonation.
O: excellent, world-class version of the style.

Best I can tell, it has a medium-clear copper color (poured in an opaque litre stein-krug). Has a rich, foamy, white head which thins down to a lasting 1/4" layer, with excellent lacing! Nose is understated, with some mild maltiness, a bit toasty. Way too mild, though. Quite good body, and a verry nice smoothness over the tongue! Decent malt flavor, with some caramel... a little toasty, bready.... a hint of some nice hops at the end. Very nice bier!!

I had this beer on a trip to Austria and it was very nice.

The beer is served in big stonewear mugs that you have to wash your self. You then go the pouring station and they serve you directly out of big wooden barrels. It takes them like 3 seconds to fill a liter (very impressive). This a very attractive old building and is very interesting in it own right.

The beer is very malty and well within style. You can drink a lot of this and not get hungover. It is very fresh and almost smelled like fresh bread. Goes great with the pretzels!

We were there in the fall and sat in their wonderful beer garden that is filled with hazelnut trees (watch out for falling nuts!). This is a great place in a a really neat city. Do your self a favor and visit if you are anywhere near here!!

I bought a case of this beer while in Salzburg

Pours golden with soft large head that slowly dissipates to thin and rather long lasting ring of foam and full of carbonation bubbles. Leaves patchy lacing. Aroma is straw malt with distant grassy hops. Taste is gentle lemony hops with some light sweetish malt and light bittersweet aftertaste. Feels very refreshing. Mouthfeel is quite thick, it has creamy feel with average carbonation.

Very good one, the only thing I regret is that I was driving and could not try it on tap.
