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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale yellow with massive white head, pressure delivery in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Sweet malty flavour which seems to be a theme from this Brewery, a little acidic pehaps citric flavour but mostly CO2 gas. Bland and uninteresting.

Golden cristal clear colour. White cumulous head, lasts well. Aroma is very faint. Has a slight lemony twist with a balanced bitter hop scent. Taste is very balanced, with subtle sweetness from malt palate, balancing well with slight bitterness.

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.

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).

Sour, corn smelling, international standard lager.
Sweetish and oily. Some maltiness.

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

BLAND. Pale golden, fluffy white head. A good amount of carbonation. Sweet, malty aroma. taste is still rather bland with a light bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is a clear gold bordering on being pale, with a strong foamy white head thats about two fingers high with some divets and leaves patchy lace. Smell is faintly soft with a acidy tang of lemon-lime-like bittersweet hop. Taste is pretty intesting, its smooth, crisp, and clean with the hop standing out as a unusual lime peel, very bitter tang twing to it thats not strong but its there. Not like a belgian wit or hefe-weisen strength in taste. It remined me of a mild IPA with a bit more thinned out malt and hop. Its not bad, its more of a solid pilsner feel and taste, but as a pale lager its a bit short.
