3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hard to find a beer from this part of the world hat is bad when you can get it fresh. That said, not everything is GREAT, I put this in that category. Very nice, very drinkable, but not very compelling.

Bottle. Dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is malty and bready. The flavor is a little sweet, creamy, malty, and smooth.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ruby/Tawny port clear colour with a medium lasting medium beige head. Light sweet roasted nutty malt aroma changes to a more floral character as it warms. Medium light body. Short light roasted malt sweetish start moving to slightly more bitter middle. Soft flat cola like sweet palate and sweetish finish and aftertaste. Drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice deep reddish colour, excellent head and lacing. Aroma only adequate, slight hoppiness, not much maltiness yet overly sweet; likewise the flavour. Passable, just not really interesting. The lable says ’Austria’s best beer’, this has to be a put down on the rest of Austria’s brewers.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
The malt is a bit sweeter than I normally prefer, and I was expecting a more smoky bock tasting finish. However, this is a good tasting light bodied dark that is very smooth. I even found sweet nature of this beer was more pleasant and inviting after one or two. I’m sure Gosser and I will have another go at it again.

A nice dark lager. A sort of bitter aftertaste but not too strong, good color and aroma.
