--Optically clear bottle pour with a thin, white foam cap. Aroma is lightly bready. The flavor is very fresh with woody hop notes and clean biscuit malt. The finish is a little thin and watery. -In all a very tasty golden lager.

I dig that this lager comes in a can. Right off the bat I can tell you that this is one of the best euro lagers that I have ever had. I have had plenty of euro lagers & pilsners and this is one of my favorites. The bitterness is not too harsh. If you are a fan of lagers you ought to go out and try this beer and that is all I can say. It's a smooth yard clean up type of beer that is not overly bitter on the finish, it's clean, and refreshing as they come for the style. Now at least I can say that I tried a beer from Austria. Cheers! A- (90-94) score range

Look- Clear, pale gold color. Poured into tulip glass, strong head at first but quickly dissipated.

Smell- Sweet aroma, though very slight. Not much more there to be honest

Taste- Initially sweet taste, with malty undertones, but finishes dry and mellow. Slight hop aftertaste.

Feel- Medium carbonation, with a somewhat creamy feel.

Overall- Not unpleasant, full bodied, tasty from start to finish.

I wonder whether I have had this or the Radler more times. They're both the beer that you don't plan to get into, but then something outdoors happens and you're in a group of people and someone has a Stiegl for you. At least that is how it played out numerous times in Milwaukee or its vicinity.

Pours a golden color, a little bit of haze to it, white 1/3" head. Aroma of lager yeast, grain and a slight noble/saaz hop type aroma thing going on. Taste was a standard Euro lager kind of vibe. Light lager skunk yeast effect, mild hops, mild pilsner malt, barely toasted and bready. A undercurrent of sweetness similar to corn based lagers in the US. Difference being this is still a little bigger on the malt end, definitely doesn't have a mouth feel of anything but 100% barley.

Bought it bottled in Salzburg, as it seemed to be the most popular one in the city. Pours pallid yellowish color with a lot of oily foam. The smell is boringly basic, not good and not bad. The taste is dominated by hoppy bitterness; inappropriately sweet for me. Light carbonation and disastrously unpleasant aftertaste. In my opinion, Stiegl has some better beers to offer (Salzburger Lager).

16 oz pour into a stiegl Pilsner glass.

A: Bright golden yellow with excellent clarity, good looking carbonation and a nice tight white head.

S: Light soft doughy breads a little bit of some floral hops a little bit of roasted malts.

T: The nose is pretty on point with the taste nice clean finish.

M: Crisp and clean fairly light bodied decent carbonation.

O: If you like a good clean helles this is it. If you aren't a fan of the style this one will not change your mind about it.

I tried this at the Tavern in Libertyville with my boss. It poured a clear golden with white head that did not leave any lace. The scent had hints of biscuit. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink....some butter bread notes. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 500 ml can into lager glass, canned on 11/30/2016. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts that whole glass. Nice thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of honey, white bread dough, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of honey, white bread dough, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Very mild herbal/grassy hop bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of honey, white bread dough, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean finishing. Very slight dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very good Munich helles. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A touch on the bland side for the style, but it's not watery. Nothing but clean pils malt flavors, with just enough hops to balance the sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

330ml bottle from Bavarian Brauhaus, Glasgow (£3.80):
Quite a disappointing & poor beer overall, this one was very basic from the start & beyond some light malts & subtle lager hops there wasn't really much going on here. Some spices showed at times & a few hints of cereal & hay showed around the middle but it's certainly not one I'd go for again.
