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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Coldtrüb amber colour, with fast gone yellowish head. Very sweet bready nose, like a German Bock, smells also like active caramelisation. Taste is much more neutral to slight bitterish; leafy & earthy flavours, virtually no sweetness, with the exception of some retronasal caramel. Light to medium bodied, light grist slickness. Special, even taken into account the Vienna characteristics. Marcus, thanks!
