330 ml bottle. BB 13/08/2014. (Merkur) Seiersberg, Austria.
Clear mahogany colour with a small greyish frothy head.
Mild caramel malty aroma.
The flavour is malt, woody dryness, mild metal and mild sweetness. Not very tasty but still better than the regular Hirter.

Light copper color with one finger of beige head. Aroma and taste are almost the same, with sweet malts, honey and some caramel. Very light beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated on 9-24-2010 (Bottle) When poured, the beer has a small beige head that mostly diminishes, transparent copper body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aromas consist of roasted malt, caramel, nutty and dark fruits. The taste is nutty, dark fruits, roasted malt, caramel, and has a short dry finish. The palate is lively carbonation and this is a medium bodied beer. I did not care for the flavor of this beer as it is somewhat astringent and blah tasting. It is not a beer I recommend nor a beer I will drink again.

Well, it’s better than ok. Pours light brown, getting a bit of a floral aroma, possibly because I just washed my hands with pretty floral smelling soap. This beer is just a bit different, taste is interesting, that’s all I have right now, not a bad thing though.......

Advent Calendar #17. Starting to bounce around now. In my mind this is not in the top 13% of Viennas, there was very little toasty flavour, like Duffman I did find it a bit metallic, but most importantly it was just weak. Mildly refreshing, but if I wanted that I’d go for a Dortmunder.
