3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Deep clear golden colour, the small head is quickly vanishing, low lacing, soft carbonation. Nose is sweet malty. Pleasant mouthfeel, taste is well balanced between sweetish malt and hop, hints of honey. Finish has a light but pleasant bitterness. A good and very drinkable beer, but not outstanding. Had the same draught in the brewpub and found it much better there, maybe because of the unique atmosphere at Stockhammer Saal.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A 1L ceramic stein poured from the barrel at the monastery, consumed under leafy chestnut trees on a sunny autumn afternoon in the beautiful biergarten. Voluminous creamy white head atop a cloudy dark amber beer. Bready and banana aromas. Taste has a fresh bready maltiness, caramel sweetness, banana and other estery fruitiness, light floral and spicy hoppiness. What really stands out and elevates this beer, however, is the very slight lactic sour tang, likely from the barrel. This, combined with the very light body, makes it eminently drinkable and perfect for quenching thirst on a sunny Salzburg afternoon.

Draught @ the brewpub. Pours slightly hazy amber with stable white head. Mild aroma of malt, with faint notes of yeast and hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with pronounced estery notes and touches of malt. Bitterish and estery aftertaste. A little watery but not unenjoyable and consumed in a nice place.

I drank this the first time at the kloster, and then many, many more during my stay in Salzburg:). A great beer over wich I have enjoyed some good times. I bought some bottles and took them back home.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
.5L on tap at the fabulous braurei in 2012 (from notes); 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, probably world-class version of the style.
