4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is an awesome beer. Don’t know why it is so short in the ratings. I have sampled an array of German beers and this is very distinct. Almost Belgian in influence. Like oak casts. Must be tried to be appreciated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice dark color. large head, quite a nice drink. Hoppy enough, easy to drink, could be a regular drink for me if it was available closer to home!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A filtered bronze hue is topped by a majestic, lingering head. Fine grainy malt and its caramel counterpart befriend mild spicy and earthy hops.
A caramel suggestion flurries through a subtle hop tingle. This citrusy and grassy hoppiness, helped by some neighbouring tropical fruit, eases the quaffing. This is a very drinkable lager, bordering Bohemian-style, which gets better and better as the pint is downed, demanding bigger and bigger gulps.
Teasing a sunburn.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. A bronze coloured beer with a white dissapating head. The aroma is sweet and malty with some brown bread notes and a bit of grassy hop. The taste is also sweet and malty with oaty toasty notes. A bit of a fusty farty taste in the after taste even though the beer is within date.

Orange/gold colour with a nice 2cm white head. Sweet malty aroma with hint of hops. Sweet malty flavour with hops, slight bitterness in the finish. Smooth, medium bodied; quite nice really.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Grainy malt aroma - lightly sweet. Amber color with minute head. Rather weak flavor - mildly sour malt intially with sweetness coming out in the middle and the merest hint of hops at the end. A good Vienna but nothing to set it apart.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful, deep amber. Just about no head. Malty caramel aroma, fine balance between sweetness and bitterness, but somehow lacking in body. Pleasant Vienna. 120305

I have had this beer many times in the past and have been impressed by it! This sampling was almost undrinkable!!!
No head , metallic, floaters, you name it!
I know we are not supposed to rip brewers or distributors, but the importer has lost control of some of his other beers as well! Buyer BEWARE!!
