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°

Demens (58) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2016
0,4l can. Clear yellow colour with big white head that slowly shrinks to small. A lot of bubbles sparkling up. Aroma: Sweet, but hard to notice anything else. Taste: The first sip was quite artifical, then slowly light sweetnes and light/medium bitterness in the taste. Sadly it’s watery and the alcohol is dominates. Light body, medium carbonation. Light bitter finish. A bit worse then an average pale lager.
