3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap in the Vienna airport at 7:15 AM as Wiener Gold. Pours gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is lightly grassy. Near medium body. Flavor is light caramel with enogh grassy hop to make it pleasing. Better than a pale lager, and less malty than some Marzens. Quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Clear, deep golden colour with a loose foamy white head. Moderately sweet and bready malty nose with herbal hoppy spice. Bitter flavour, medium bodied with a crispy carbonation. Bready, cara-malty and slightly buttery taste with distinctive herbal accents; dry and moderately sweet malty finish with a rounded level of hoppy bitterness. Surprisingly aromatic brew with Bohemian attributes (12.08.08).

Bottle [from Euro Swap 7 thanks to Sebilinz] @ home. Clear golden color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, hayish, quite clean and crisp with a decent bitterness. Suitable body and carbonation. I quite like it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle a friend brought me from Wien (thanks a lot Ivana!), shared with heavy
Poured a golden body with a medium sized head. Lighter malty nose, again a bit honeyish. A bit light malty, honeyish and fruity taste balanced by a light (again) but persistent and biting herbal hopiness. A fine enough lager, but I prefered the Pils and, as some have said, too weak a taste for 5.6%.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33 l green bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thank a lot for sharing! It poured lighter golden body with medium sized head. Fine marzen aroma, flower malty with some grass hops. Flavor was less interesting, although pleasant, nicely balanced between sweet and bitter, quite thin bodied, and as such pretty boring. Finish of medium duration was pleasantly sweetish, malt dominating. Quite good for marzens, but nothing special, well I don’t like the style too much anyway.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle in Vienna.
A rich, slightly dark-colored lager, looks like a real Maerzen. Full, rich malt flavor, with quite a bit of sweetness. A fine, full-bodied lager. Decent hops in the finish, but could really do with a little bit more overall, though it is very nice stuff.
