Enormous thanks to my mom and some friends (Ana & Karolina) for bringing this from Hamburg! Poured a dark amber-brown body with a small off white head. Heavy malty nose, just maltiness. Light grainy malty taste, maybe caramel, some dog food, very light hop. A solid malt-driven lager, with no major flows other than it’s not my style - glad to have tried it.

26/12 0.33 l bottle, courtesy of Marko, thanks for sharing! It poured clear copper brownish body with small head. Malty caramel aroma, but rather dry, touched with light citrus hops. Flavor was lightly sweet, nicely toasted: caramel, brown sugar, some biscuit, toast, going to a bit dryer things gradually, when some herbal hops are showed in the finish, besides caramel which was dominating all the way through. Pretty full bodied. Really nice and enjoyable Vienna.
