Pours amber from the bottle. The head is frothy and lingers amidst mild lacing for much of the duration. Aroma is cereal and caramel undertoned by both sweet apple and a light moldy dankness that reminds me of a Kellerbier. Taste is malt-driven with a mild caramel sweetness up front, followed by an abrupt seague into a toffee/cardboard mix. Ends with with a deadening bitterness that feels flat and worn out despite the not subtle levels of carbonation. A light spice on the tongue does outlive the otherwise unsatisfying finish. The beer is called Winter Dream, but this is a long way away from the German bock beers that generally get the label of being winter brews. Actually quite suitable for all times of year - just a little disappointing.

Normally, when you enjoy a lager beers tend to be very balanced, excess bitter taste or staying some part unbalanced. This beer is round without imbalance. Although not the style I do recognize that there are craft beer.

Quite like any regular lager but a bit darker and with a spiced twist. Only barely noticeable in the aroma since the taste is nothing special. But hey, it’s cheap and comes in large format (0’5L) so why not?

Cristobal37 (812) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 20, 2015
Bronze with ample head, similar to a marzen. Caramel, toast, malts, sticky maple syrup. Similar to their barock dunkel. Actually Christmasy! Ginger bread and dunkel beer! Pretty cool, I like it.

SinH4 (3183) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2015
Amber color with small tan head. Aroma is light caramel malts, herbal hops, but not intense. Taste is chewy caramel malts with some earthiness, but overall pretty light. Very easy to drink, but it has some character. A well-balanced Vienna, just a bit boring.
