Bottle, 2013 version. I will leave out a detailed rating and just enjoy this beer as it is in respect of Gerhard Forstner who passed away today. Many thanks for pioneering Austrian craft beer, your achievement will be remembered. Prost!

Erasmus_ro (1924) - Alabama, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, ABV 6,6%. Pours a dark auburn brown with a good-sized, fairly dark beige head. Aroma is grainy, light rye, some grass. Reminds one of a pilsner. Taste is rye, dark maltiness, light spiciness. Grain and grass. Medium with fairly weak carbonation. Pretty nice overall, though perhaps a bit more is expected with this ABV. Goes well with food.
