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.

Bottle at Chris_O’s 19th April 2008 tasting. Orange in colour with a malty aroma. Maltier in taste than a standard pilsner. A bit slick & quick on the palate but a good, clean tasting beer.

Bottle at Chris_o’s The Wolf tasting. Amber colour with a bit of syrupy malt in the mouth, but pretty decent. I enjoyed all of the Hirter beers I had which I bought from The Bohemian in Deal.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris_O’s Ha Ha Ha Ha Gimme the Cheese Tasting.
Rich amber with a rapidly dissipating head. Plenty of sharp bitter hops offset by yeasty notes. Slight caramel sweetness and spice. A reasonable vienna.
