I thought it was a tasty lager. The smell was actually the best component, floral with some nice fruitiness.

Bottle: Deep golden to light amber coloured; deep sweet-malty nose (nutty, bready) with a tinge of honey; sweet malty start, becoming dryer soon; big malty flavour; shorter bitter-sweet finish, quite dry. A nicely rounded, very tasty Vienna !

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are grain with citrus and sugar. Zesty and fresh. Flavours are light caramel malts with sweet, sugary grain. Dry and toasty with an almost champagne like character (almost). OK, if a bit too sweet for my personal taste.

500 ml bottle. From Germany (beerangel.com). HHOK4.
Clear deep golden colour with small to average off-white head.

Dry hops, grainy malt, some nuts and lots of metal in flavour.
Metallic flavour is quite disturbing.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 The Lure:
A filtered bronze hue is topped by a majestic, lingering head. Fine grainy malt and its honeyed 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 herbs, 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.
