Lovely mid gold pour, pretty in the glass, albeit without much head retention. Sweet grains and hops on the nose. Taste follows. Standard helles with a pleasant bittersweet and dry finish.

Had this on tap. Pours crisp, fizzy, clear gold color with one finger head. Lacing is minimal. Basically, the aromas were dominated by cereal and malts. Taste of the same cereal and mat with a sweet touch. Elevated carbonation has little to no bitterness. Enjoyable. Perfect with the Margherita pizza I had.

It pours a transparent amber with a white head and a malty nose. The flavor tastes like the smell, very malt forward. It's a pleasant and clean beer.

First beer in Vienna! On draft at an Irish pub near the hotel, “The Oak”. Just a good, clean, crisp beer that goes well with food. Not going to seek it out but fun to finally try a major Austrian beer brand.

Pours golden with a moderate head

Pleasant grainy, malty aromas with some sweetness

Taste is sweet, grainy/grassy and light

Fairly carbonated but not sharp and biting

Overall, this is one of my go-to's as its readily available to me.

16.9 oz can.

Pours a crystal clear pale golden color with a significant foamy white head. Good head retention. Tons of sticky lacing.

Strong aromas of doughy malt, cereal grains, wet grass, light citrus, and floral hops.

The flavor brings notes of cereal grain, sweet dough, honey, and very subtle hops. A bit too sweet and malt-forward for the style.

The feel is light bodied with pretty good carbonation. Extremely dry finish.

Overall, this is a solid German lager. Unfortunately it's too sweet and the hop presence is minimal at best. With some spicy hop character, this could be an exceptional beer.

500ml can poured into kitchen glass.

Pours a clear gold with one fat finger of off-white head that leaves a few splotches of lace as it recedes.

Smells of sweet grain, baking bread, garden flowers, muddled pomme fruit and some grass clippings.

Tastes of grainy, bready pale malt, apple chips and more floral, grassy hops.

Feels light and peppy. Light bodied with frothy carbonation. Finishes off-dry.

Verdict: Recommended. I'm glad it comes in a big can.

Pours a golden in the typical German helles fashion. Head is dense. Some floral character on the nose along with some cereal grain as well. The malt is light and not particularly rich. It's got some nice crusty bread character with enough noble hops to prevent this from being too malt forward. It's dry in a great way.

Looks exactly like a typical lager. Smells pretty close to typical German lager fare (Austria is part of Großdeutschland, do not dispute this). Some bready lager malt on the nose, a bit wet smelling somehow, can't detect any hops. The flavour is mostly that sweetish bready malt from start to finish, not as good as Munich malts, but not bad. The hops presence is a bit weak: it's there, but I find it somewhat lacking. The balance thus skews towards the sweet and malty side. Still, it's drinkable, refreshing, pleasant even. Overall a half decent German lager, it could just use a bit more bite from the hops.

Rerate, 330 ml bottle, as Stiegl Goldbräu, from CITTI-Markt Flensburg. BB date 14.01.2014. ABV is 4.9%. Fairly bland and neutral aroma and flavour, but without the unpleasant "cooked vegetables" character of the Hütten-Gaudi. I’m upping a point or two.

Original rating: 330 ml shared bottle, as Stiegl Hütten-Gaudi, from CITTI-Markt Flensburg. Golden colour, low white head. "Cooked" / "boiled" aroma of pilsener wort and cooked vegetables. Smooth mouthfeel. Cooked vegetables and wort in the flavour too (like a n/a beer), a little hops in the finish. Not much "Gaudi" with this one. Very disappointing.

Had on tap. Crystal clear golden bubbly body with two fingers of white foam. Sweet lager malt with white bread and very light leafy hops in the nose. Taste is so sweet with malts, like beyond honey sweet, big white bread and cracker can't balance, bitter leafy hops are sharp and jolting on the very end of the finish. Feel is light, crisp, sticky for style, has a high carbonation level and thin.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a patch of bubbles on the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and some specks of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of bready hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that the malty flavors are a touch stronger and there is also a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and very clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink abut the aromas and flavors of malts seem to be subdued compared to others in the style.
