This was for years one of my favorite beers then I started with craft beers.Its an average Austrian industrial beer with no special taste. A little bit malt, a little bit bitter cant say that there is any hop aroma.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from the can into a cup on an Austrian Airlines flight. The beer had a clear gold color with many bubbles and a foamy (and touch creamy) white head with good retention, along with very good cling and lacing. The aroma featured barley, grain, earthy hops, and a touch of straw. The taste was somewhat bitter and grainy with a light touch of malt and some earthy tones. It was quite dry with a lighter, thinner mouthfeel, and average carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear yellow golden color, topped with a medium sized white foamy head. Malty aroma with some notes of fresh grassy hops, a bit citrusy. Taste is malty and slightly sweet, medium bitterness in the body. Not a bad one, though nothing special either.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Seriously flawed beer. Lots and lots of metallic and cooked vegetables. Poorly drinkable and sourish finish. Bad bad.

0,5 hana @ Blue Box Vienna. Kirkas kullanruskea, oranssi valaistus hämää, saattaa olla meripihkan sävyinenkin. Tuoksussa mallasta, vähän humalaa. Baarin tupakan haju haittaa merkittävästi. Maussa mallasta, hedelmää, humalaa. Maku on mukava, sääli kun hajusta ei saa irti.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear pale gold with one finger of fluffy white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (3/5) Nose is grainy pale malt, faint grassy hops. (4/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (4/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter finish. (3/5)
A fairly typical Helles - decent enough as a thirst quencher, with a moderately dry and crisp finish. Middle of the road and inoffensive. (10/20)

If you visit Vienna you can’t fail to see Ottakringer. From Tap in Vienna. Clear, golden colour with a thin, white head. Aroma is light citrus with some malt. Taste is malt, light hoppy, some grain.It´s not bad, but also not a higlight. Easy drinking.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On the plane from Tel Aviv to Vienna 12/3 2015. 33 cl can provided free with the food. Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Subsides rather quickly. Aroma is rather bland. Perhaps a little fruitiness. Medium carbonation. Taste is rather anonymous as well. Discrete sweetness and a little metallic alcohol followed by very light bitterness. You could argue that this constitutes some kind of balance - but it does not make it a great beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent Helles that tastes a bit too pedestrian to be considered a find, despite existing since 1837. This beer has good bitterness but tastes slightly metal and one sided.
