Subdued bitterness mixing in with the dark roasted malt. Ends with a mild fruity note to a dark malt base. Light bitterness coming through.

Comments: Draught at Hopfhaus in Wien. I was quite impressed to encounter such a (moderately) complex beer from Ottakringer. Fun caramelly maltiness blended with plums, grass, honey.. Sweet, yet drinkable. Earthy, dark and fun flavours.

Draught at the Schweizerhaus, Prater, Vienna, where they called it "Rotes Zwickl." I am not really sure just what style of beer this is aiming for. It is reddish-brown in color, very cloudy. Has a rich, malty, fruity, and quite sour flavor that even resembles a Flemish ale slightly. It has a slightly sour, yeasty aroma as well. This was very nice stuff, interesting and original, and more complex than their others beers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Humm, guessing this is it, as the Gösser Jubiläumsbier is refered to mostly as "Dunkles Zwickl". Draught at the 3 Goldenen Kugeln, Seiersberg, Graz as the "beer of the month". Anyway, poured a darker, completely murky red colour. Fruity malty nose, nothing too special. The taste is pretty much more of the same, full and kinda ruined by some kind of acidity and yeastiness. Slightly underwhelming, but still better than the average Austrian lager and it did well to douse the fires the lovely 3 Goldenen Kugeln Country Cordon left in my untrained mouth. I’ll probably rerate this at a point since I’m not 100% sure if I should even be rating it.
