3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle I got at some supermarket in Graz. Poured a red-brown body with a small off white head that went away too fast. A strong sweet grainy, bready aroma with some light caramel promises a solid beer and it delivers. A flowery and caramelly sweetness on top a grainy chalky maltiness... woody and honeyish too. Very light aftertaste hop that stays a little in the aftertaste. A solid, nice Vienna.

Bottle. Amber coloured, smaller lacy off-white head. Moderate toasty nose with a tinge of nuts. Rather light bodied, dryish light bitter-sweet flavour. A very light acidity is detectable in the dryish bitter-sweet finish. A bit boring...........

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 4.9%. Very weak buttery aroma. Clear reddish chestnut colour. Very small white head. The flavour is malty and dusty, slightly roasted and perhaps a hint of butter. The aftertaste is a little burnt, and perhaps also slightly grainy. But it is balanced by some sweetness and spicy aroma hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy amber hue, with a small beige head, but falling quickly, and leaving laces, toasted, caramelized, grainy, malt nose with an earthy maltiness, some toffee, cookie dough accents, with a subtle floral hop aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp grainy, toasty, biscuity malt character, with some caramel, toffee flavors, with some faint fruity dried raisins, with a mild flowery hop leafiness, leading towards a malty, lingering hop bitterness finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
29/07 Draught in Bard Celtic Pub in Rijeka. I think this is the one, as waitress told me it’s Vienna style. Poured clear red body with medium sized ebony head. Rather weak aroma but pleasantly, caramel malted. Flavor is somehow different than I’ve excpected - bitterish hoppy but malty at the same time, largely in form of sweet caramel. Pretty thin bodied, but still nice. It was interesting how the first sips revealed bitterness which was not quite representative alone, later moving into caramel sweetness which is felt specially on its long finish. Fine, interesting, but nothing great again.
