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.

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

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.

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.
