0.5L pour at LIDO. Amber golden pour with a little bit of white head. The aroma is a little bit sweet and slightly fruity. There is a touch of DMS along with some light malt sweetness. A light floral character but muted. Itís okay though. Itís no cask bitter, thatís for sure.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012
Re-rate, draught at Lido, Riga. Hazy amber, small head. Sweet and doughy. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Bread and some syrup. Light malt bitterness.
Draught at Lido, Tallinn, Estonia. Cloudy deep golden, creamy head. Mild citric nose. Sweetish with light-medium body and fairly clean mouthfeel. Some caramel. A little sourish and lacking in depth. Resiny bitterness. Off shape, if it hadnít been poured at one of Lidoís own establishments I wouldnít have rated it ,now itís been in their control all the way to my glass. (4/5/4/2/8=2.3)

Had this served in a maaskrug at the Lido restaurant in Riga. I may be giving this a slight better rating than it deserves, but every beer tastes better when it is served in a liter glass. It is very true to the Vienna style. Slightly less than a fest beer, but very drinkable. Decent head and carbonation. Good balance with hops and malt.

A sligtly hazy Vienna, with sweet fruit and flowers. Gives a summer feeling, but it a bit too sweet.
