2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Having been to Austria, this ain’t it. Poured with a thin head and a touch of lager/sulfur in the nose giving way to a very light and simple crystal malt aroma that is out of place for the style. The body was thin for the style with none of the melanoidin character and subtle toast I was hoping for. That said, it is clean enough and isn’t offensive.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light bronze, with a nice sized sturdy white head. Smells like sweet molasses and toast. Flavor is nicely sweet, with more molasses, some more toast, and some subtle smokey notes. Not bad...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear amber - nose of caramelized sugars, toffee, light spiciness and a mild bitterness - low carbonation, fairly soft texture - flavor is fairly clean caramelized sugars, light toasty maltiness, moderate bitterness, the slightest hint of mineral - finish is medium dry malt - not terrible interesting but clean and enjoyable enough.

Caramelized malty aroma and flavor. Nice hop balance. Pretty full flavored. Malt dominant, but a nice beer overall. But if the lagerish funk but not too much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
