(Served in a strange)
3/9/2012 on bottle
A- This beer pours a deep straw yellow body with a lumpy off-white head that is thick and a quick sea of carbonation pops to the top. The head sticks in sheets with each sip.

S- the clean lager aroma has a slightly sweet sulfur and some pils malt note to it with a wet mash aroma in the finish. The soft noble hop note comes through in the finish as it opens.

T- The clean gentle sweetness is pale malt but there is a soft slightly sweet mineral water note in the finish. The noble hop bitterness lingers a bit in the aftertaste but stays in balance

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a slightly slippery texture and a gentle fizz.

O- Nice German Pilfer that is just a touch sweeter than most but it adds a nice freshness to the malt flavor. It is well balanced but the mineral water taste tends to grow a bit to much as it opens.

Pours a clear yellow with a soapy, thin head. Aromas of fresh grain and spice. Taste begins with a grassy start, followed by a hint of bubblegum, then some french bread, and finally some grassy, soapy bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is good. Overall a pretty good pilsner. The bubblegum component was a bit surprising, though pleasant.

16.9 oz brown bottle poured into my SA perfect pint glass. It has freshness dating which I like on imports. The beer is a hazy yellow with a fairly thick bone white head.

It has an aroma of some slightly euro skunk, grains and a bit of hay.

The taste is slightly sweet with some crackers, a bit of the skunk thing and grains. It is almost totally neutral with no real leaning toward the bitter or malt side of the scale.

The mouth is well balanced between some active carbonation and a bit of heft/slickness.

Not awful, not great, would really like to try next time I'm back in Austria! Note this one was so much better on draft, I'm worried that my bottle may have been poorly handled.
