3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Golden colour. Crystal claear. Very tall white coarse head that clings to the glass. Delicate papery noble hop aroma with some metallic notes. Grassy. Crisp maltiness. Light-bodied, but still with quite a bit of malt flavour. Light lingering floral hop bitterness through to the finish. Very nice.

Sweet grain, like a boquet of flowers past its prime, the pollen falling from the peatls making the dusty hoppiness. Austrian brewers are rearely daring, and when they water down the beer for the Swedish market they do certainly not improve.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
straw-blonde colour ... not very firm head (the foam is a bit ’soapy’) .... taste is a bit soury ....
the problem with Austrian beers will be similar to the problem with Swiss beers I guess: the water is too hard ... this usually gives a light bodied beer with a soury note ... ok as a thirst quencher in summer, but not a beer to enjoy
