2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a copper bronze with a thin wispy white head. Dry toasty nutty and buttery aroma. Starts with a sweet toasty caramel maltiness turning more dry and mildly earthy. An ok amber, but could be more balanced and have less diacetyl.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Copperish colour with mediumsized head. Aroma of dark bread, maize and malts. Flavour is sweet malty and maizeish. Palate is ok, not as watery as many other Italians sampled at this occasion. Fancy bottle here again, and actually the content was not too bad.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber colour. Aroma with hints of nuts and toffee but also strangely acidic. Flavour is pleasant enough but not at all interesting. The store claims this is "the world’s best beer" - have you ever heard anything this ridiculous?

Bottled (BB 02/2007)
Dark honey amber color, good beige head, lace. Ryeish malty aroma with woody notes. Light-bodied, grassy hoppy flavor with hints of sweetness (diacetyl?). Not very stylish Vienna. Boring.

Bottled. Dark golden in colour, white head, lacings. It has an aaoma of corn. The flavour is hoppy and there is some corn present. It has a dry aftertaste. Thanks to Dorqui for this beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 Pours copper w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Good head retention w/ some sticky lacing. Aromas of malted iron. Medium nectar w/ mellow residual effers. This brew is so drinkable. It’s crisp and refreshing upfront w/ bright malts and brisk cocoa caramel. The hop profile is mild and very palatable. Mid palate retians flavors well and passes them along gently. The finish lingers w/ the caramel and has a fresh, crisp bittering component. Highly recommended.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge, creamy, white head over light brown (amber, perhaps?) body.
Sweet, malty, grainy aroma with notes of straw and fruitiness. Taste
is mostly straw, with very sweet, fruity malts behind it, and a bitter
aftertaste with some spice in it. Mouthfeel slightly watery.
Definitely a decent beer, but not very exciting.

Bottle, at DBF (040515).
Red with off-white head. Light malty aroma (caramel) and a light hoppyness. OK.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An extremely malty taste (almost a slight taste of bread :o) ). Well, the corn probably enhances that taste. Otherwise, it’s not particularly hoppy, but still rather fresh.

I thought this was a very drinkable beer; especially in 1.2L servings and in twos. In any other fashion, this straight-forward beer is nothing.
