3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
25th March 2013
At the Brewpub. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is slightly dry. Mild minerally carbonation. Pretty sweet malt, creamy and with some honey. Orange fruits well buried. Semi dry finish. Not bad but not very IPA like. Drinkable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London. Thanks to Paul for this bottle. Pours lightly hazy amber with a fine, white head. Not going to put much more effort into this rating as the beer is clearly infected. Tangy, some leafy bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Bleh. Barely drinkable. (If the beer isn’t infected, then it’s really terrible.)

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Was the first IPA in Vienna and is still my favorite. Not to hoppy though and low alcohol for an IPA - 5 percent. Overall a very round beer. Sad they currently do not brew it.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, picked up at 7 Stern. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is toast, sulphurous, grain and some sweetness. The taste is honey, lemon, tangy lime, some acidity, bitter-sweet aspect and faint soap with a dry, faintly citric finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps slightly infected. Disappointing given some of their other beers, but maybe this was a bad bottle...

Hazed orangey amber with a thin off white head.

509ml on tap at the brew pub. Aroma is hops and slightly honey. Appearance is dark,cloudy brown with a nice brown-ish head. Taste is first sweet and immediately bitter with a very fine bitter-ish finish. Very nice mouth feel. Overall a good IPA with little space to improve. I like this.
