3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 330 ml, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5.8%
Bright red caramel colour on the body. Head is just a bit taller than one finger, off-white in colour, with average retention and it leaves light lacing as it collapses.
Aroma of malts but not heavy, caramel, a bit of strawberry juice (?).
Taste follows the aroma, quite a bit of caramel, then (heavier now) malts flavour on the aftertaste, along with a good bitterness with medium duration.
Medium thin body, a bit too much carbonation.
Overall a decent beer, a good alternative to the wider available lagers of the greek market.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle purchased and consumed in Athens, GR. BB 12-09-15. 5.8%
Clear red-amber body with a fine, creamy, bone-colored head; Excellent lacing but could have more clarity.
Medium body and medium, crisp carbonation.
Flavor: Moderate level of malt with a touch more spicy hops than expected. This balance works well and makes the beer more interesting and dynamic.
O: Probably one of the better readily available (supermarket) beers here in Athens.

0,2L bottle sample@Internationales Bierdorf, Tettnanger Hopfenwandertag 2014. Translucent red chestnut with lively lacing, nice and fragrant Vienna dry caramalt aromatics with that typical wood and some dried berries. Taste is same, nicely drinkable though with a rougher cardboard edge and some of those earsmear hops towards the finish. Very decent Greek Vienna...
