2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle, ABV is 5.5%. Might be imported to Norway. Amber colour, big head, slightly off-white. Strong aroma of butterscotch and caramel. Fresh and soft mouthfeel, just the right carbonation in the glass. The flavour has also butterscotch (too much) and caramel. Some hops in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Sveavägen, Stockholm) Amber colour with lasting, frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of toast, cereal, bread and orange peel. Malty, slightly roasted taste with bread, toast, orange peel and a mild, spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, slightly sweetish. Quite nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5 l bottle as a gift.
Clear amber-reddish colored beer with a small but stable, creamy off white-tan head. Sweet malt and toasted caramel in the aroma with a moderated herbal hop perfume. Medium bodied beer with caramel and malt, toasted tastes, sourish yeasts and a dry, herbal hop in the finish. Not a bad but not a very exciting one...

500 ml bottle at home from Kaufland. Amber colour, sweet aroma and taste, good semi-dark beer for a nice price. ( Jantárová farba, sladká vôňa a chuť, dobré polotmavé pivo za výbornú cenu. )

I have had a bottle of this in fridge for awhile, dodging it actually, but was pleasantly surprised that it drank so easily. Nothing fancy but smooth drinking with light toffee notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Nice Amber coloration that start with a huge beige head and keep perfect lace until end it. Aroma is sweety, notes of toasted malt, caramel, and some hop. Flavor is a balanced bitterness and sweetness more sweet than bitter, but notes of alcohol on it. Mouthfeel has a medium duration but a good beer after a stressing day! I love it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear orangeish amber pour with a dense beige head that lasts a while. Aroma of biscuity malt, toast and caramel. The flavour mirrorrs the aroma with an initial hint of sweetness on the front palate followed by lingering bitterness on the back. Nice sessionable Vienna, on the heavy side for the style but still good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2010 500ml bottle. Amber, light beige head. Aroma of rich caramel, a bit of toast, touches of earth and grass. Taste has caramel, but it’s not all that sweet. Hazelnuts and some dry sherry. A little sourness. Quite pronounced bitterness at the finish features some metal. Not really my sort of thing but rather good. [3.1]
Trying again, this time on purpose. I bought the one above expecting a pilsener (ignorant as I am). Then I bought another by accident, enjoyed it rather more and was surprised to later look at my rating (the deScription’s OK, the score’s not). This is lovely: a balanced, tasty and gluggable drop.

bottle. Dark reddish brown. Aroma hardly noticebly but some vanilla and raisins. Brown frothy head that disappears quickly. Quite sweet taste with some soy and roasty malt. That typical lager sourness. Ok for a lager.
