2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(33cl bottle) Clear, amber colour with a short beige foamy head. Sweet malty nose with notes of caramel, marzipan and vanilla. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Malt-accented taste with notes of caramel and nettle-like spice; dry and slim, slightly bitter finish with a tinge of metal. Initially a promising brew but later a bit bland (11.XI.08).

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light orange-brown (dull copper) body, thin off-white head. Aroma of toffee and fig, thin and acidic, even soapy, with toasty notes. Thin, lightly tart body with notes of tobacco, toast, and fig. Decent complexity for such a thin beer, but the watery body and acidity are underwhelming.

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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330mL bottle, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Nose is of sweet treacly, caramel malts, toasted nuts, bread, and some honey-ish accents. Flavour is fairly light, with the same treacly caramel malts and honey notes dominating, but they are very weak. A bit of bread as well. Kind of sweet, but the body is not strong enough for it to come through much. Decent, inoffensive beer, but nothing special.
