A spezial delight. The strong, full-bodied Gösser Spezial is a delight for lovers of rich beers. This is a beer with style and a nutty, hop fragrance that is both refreshing and concentrated on the palate. An elegant hop aroma and delicate bitter tang accompany the enjoyment of this bottom-fermented beer, which demonstrates remarkable head stability. Gösser Spezial was drunk to celebrate the signing of the Austrian state treaty. 13.2°

Zarkam (531) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
500ml bottle from Supermarket in Budapest, brewed by Heineken Hungary, 5.1% abv. Clear sparkling yellow colour, medium frothy mostly diminishing head and fair lacing. Lightly malty aroma of light bread and grain, light to moderate hoppiness with notes of grass and lemon. Taste is initially slightly sweet and turns lightly bitter towards the short light astringent finish, medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Passable basic lager with no offtastes nor character.

Erzengel (5082) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2013
Rating from 2010: Ein Vollbier aus Wasser, Gerstenmalz, Hopfen. Der Antrunk ist leicht süßlich, wie bei den Prozenten erwartet. Zum Hauptteil gesellt sich eine leicht herbe Note, die harmonisch mit dem süßlichen Malzton harmoniert. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, malzig, aber nicht zu süßlich. --> nettes Bier, für meinen Geschmack aber etwas zu malzlastig-süßlich. --> 9/

mile (3342) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly grainy and dryish, faint caramel, light grassy - herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish, some grassy hoppyness. Dryish and OK bitterness for lager.
