Typical Euro lager. Grassy hop aroma and good balance of this with malt. Still reasonable.

Austria's Finest beer! Well, I am pretty excited about trying something that prestigious. Light, ordinary, no head, but a little lacing. Aroma has the faintest whiff of malt, but then is gone. Taste is exactly what you'd expect, grassy, canned lagery. Still, it's not totally awful. Just regular beer. It's watery, not much finish, but on the OK side of bad.

A real surprise - very nice. In the US, this is simply called "Gosser Beer." I expected crap but this was flavorful, suitably malty and well-hopped. I'm pleased and would buy this again.

The label says "Austria's Finest Beer", but I think it should be on another can. Name sounds like Gusset, and I think this beer has been strained through one (a used one).

(500ml Can) Pours a medium, foamy head and a light golden body. Sweet corn-skunk aroma. Weak taste of grass and sweet malt. Below average.

I'm fairly certain I'm rating the correct beer, though mine is in a bottle instead of a can (see user_experience's rating). Color is golden with a decent white head. Aroma...is a little stinky, in my opinion. Not very pleasant but, fortunately, not too strong! Flavor is fairly weak. Not too much going on here. This one isn't as good as the "dark" from Gosser. Oh well...can't win 'em all.

Blonde with a thick whipped marshmallow head, this head a corn syrupy sweet aroma and a flavor of sweet, stale corn syrup as well. Malt pushed through after awhile and this beer was drinkable, but not satisfying.

Straw colour with a big bubby head. Medium body with a good malt flavour and a nice hop bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly grassy, faintly fruity to start.
Some hops, minimal flavour which dissipates quickly. More of a British style beer than what I expect from a country so close to Bavaria.
