3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
