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.

Sweet and grassy aroma, golden, light white head. Grassy flavour, nice bitterness. Clean, crisp, bitter with good carbonation. Average.

This stuff is on par with the St Pauli Girl beer, but better because it is from the homeland... The dark is much better.

Golden coloured. Fruity and sweet. Low bitterness. Typical Brau Union-beer.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2002
A very boring beer. No special taste, head or aroma. A very common export-beer. Don’t even bother.

Hint of maltiness and probably saaz hops, but not much else going on.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2002
Very little aroma--what is there is slightly hoppy...Appearance is very ordinary light yellow with a white fizzy head...Malt provides slight residual sweetness but almost no body. Hops are light and sharp, providing most of the finish as well. This is pretty one-dimensional beer, about on par with better American commercial beers, but at import price cannot really be recommended.

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.
