COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 (532) - 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.
