[Sampled in 2005.] Nice brew of vienna-stylle with some freshness and sourness in its flavor

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite drinkable and well made, malty and sweet but dry in the finish, soft mouthfeel and nice earthy malt low notes lingering in the finish. Aroma is sharp and worty, toasty and lifted by a touch of floral hops. Only slight dodginess is the weird black banana (chess set) flavour in the aftertaste. Nice head that settles in little icefloes, Czech style. In fact reminds me of Czech polotmaves.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber colour with a medium off-white head. Some malt in the aroma with cooked vegetables, some sweet malt, caramel and leather. More leather and wood in the flavour with some alcohol. Slick and light mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. Not a very exciting beer. A light and a bit strange taste and aroma.

Nota: espuma se torna cremosa após assentar, parecida com a de uma irish ale, sabor amadeirado, saboroso, mas não traz o amargor de lúpulo pungente e característico de boas vienna q provei anteriormente

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared a 33cl bottle. Aroma is cereal, caramel and liquorice. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is more sweet than bitter with a dry finish. Overall, a nice brew but a bit boring.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours caramel amber, with a nice creamy head. Aroma is toffee, with notes of straw and some, not unpleasant, yeast. Full bodied, with medium carbonation. Flavour is roasted malts, caramel, toffee, syrup and bread.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Brandy in colour with a suprisingly large head. Aroma of malbec wine and caramel. A battle for dominance in the mouth. One second its fruit, the next sour hops, the next sweet malt. They just don’t want to balance each other out.
The joyful nose saves this one from disaster.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle served in a Weizen glass.
A: Pours an absolutely clear copper color forming a medium creamy and thin bubbled beige head. Medium retention and quite a lot of spotty, lingering and a bit soapy lacings formed and left around the glass
S: Sweet caramel and crystal malts in the nose. Very earthy. I like it. Flowery hops in the end
T: Sweet caramel in the upfront. Notes of caramel and crystal malts. Evident bready and very earthy low fermentation yeasts. Malty and crispy and very smooth and easy drinking. Mild hoppy bitterness that fits to the style
M: Light and bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. Malt and caramel in the aftertaste
O: Smooth and easy drinking beer. Simple and very honest. Much better than the italian macro breweries’ offers
