COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bottom fermented, light beer tickles the palates of beer-lovers around the world. Its aroma is mildly malty and its refreshingly sharp tang derives from balanced hopping.

piscator34 (2005) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 21, 2004
This is a fairly dull pale lager type beer, with a few more floral hops thrown in there for good measure. It has a somewhat disturbing green tinge to it’s golden colour too. It’s better than most North American macros, but probably not worth its additional cost.

shrubber85 (8104) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2004
(can) Aroma is sweet with a hint of apricot/peach. Large amount of head on pouring. Taste non-offensive. Sweetness does not come out much in the flavor and only a vague hint of malt and hops. Another mild Austrian brew that would taste good after a day of skiing but not when you want a good beer flavor

Eructoblaster (3144) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2004
Canned - 500ml. Limpid golden body topped with a thin and diminishing bubbly head. Decent malty/bready aroma with some herbal and flowery notes. Mouthfeel is refreshing, hoppy and fairly carbonated. It ends with a good bitter final that also leaves some bready hints on the palate. This is a decent Helles to drink when you eat a hotdog on Stephansplatz in Vienna.

TBone (13118) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2006 Bottled (BB 03/2005)
Typical lager color, small but steady white head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Well-balanced hoppied pils but nothing special. (5/3/5/2/10 2.5)
Re-rate, can (BB 07/2007). Pale yellow, small white head. Mild woody hoppy, a bit vegetably nose. Sweet malty, hints of grassy hoppyness somewhere. Standard low-quality bulk lager. (2/2/3/2/6 1.5)

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2004
500 ml can- Darker golden body with a thin head. Aromas are mild. A combonation of cirtus and hops. Taste is sweet, subtle hops, and a little too weak to get much else. Crisp and refreshing. Decent.

Crockett (1017) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2004
500ml Can. Pale gold no head. Apple juice and barnyard aroma. Hoppy. Clean apple flavours. Burnt malt notes. Woody faint caramel. Soapy perfumes. Not bad.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2004
I actually visited the brewery in Austria. It was nothing special, but I liked their ad campaign: "Gut. Besser. Gösser." Heh. Umm, it's kinda refreshing but a bit watery for my taste. Inoffensive but not really worth a second try, ja?

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2004
Pours pale and sparkling with a thin head; grassy-malt aroma; bittersweet malt flavour; very refreshing Austrian brew. (500ml can)
