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.

Is this what Austrian water tastes like? I was expecting much more from this. Very little aroma or flavor - not even skunkiness (mine was in a green bottle). Finished w. a clean weak hop dryness. I could swear 20 years ago this stuff was not so bad.

Thin, slight hop finish, not a whole lot going on here overall.

Oh God, Austrain BUD.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 Bottled:
Pours pale yellow with a white, fluffy head. Sweet and malty aroma with a light touch of citrus. Flavour has a sweet and malty background, sour notes and an unpleasant bitterness. Macro crap.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 12, 2002
UPDATED: APR 18, 2005 Pretty bland lager, mild in body, not much bite, slightly dry in the finish. Nothing wrong with it, just there’s so many out there and most are better. Probably tastes better in Austria or with Austrian cuisine.

Pretty boring. Fizzy and yellow, no flavour.

IneedAbuheer (69) - Ingleside, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2002
Nothing exciting here. Aroma and flavor fairly non-existent. Not a bad beer, just not worthwhile.

CQC (224) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2002
Smells like rubber inner-tube, which after a couple of mouthfuls, you can’t smell at all. Wishy washy, thin and dribbly, fluorescent fast paced flat beer. Still I’ll have another.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - APR 28, 2002
Semi-clear light yellow. Bubbly white head. Moderate carbonation. Light skunk and cardboard aroma, sweet malts. Lightly sweet and crisp. Moderate body. Hint of stale oxidation but has a healthy German hop snap. This has potential, if fresh.

quite a boring, VERY ordinary lager type brew...for some odd reason, i expected more than this.
