COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-strength beer containing 5.4% by vol. alcohol, which is spicy and not too strongly hopped. Stammbräu harks back to the optimistic mood of the early days, still prevailing here, and is advertised with period illustrations from shortly after the turn of the century. Stammbräu is only available in the traditional cliplock bottles, which have been re-introduced. Particularly in the Vienna area,

Geiserich (3388) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 11, 2005
Malt and hop aroma. Deep gold to light bronze colour, soft carbonation. Balanced between hop and malt, some alcohol notes. Light bitter finish. Overall (Premium Lager), in my opinion.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2004
Golden colored, big white head. Mildly sweet and fruity aroma, hops come up stronger. Maybe some caramel comes can be noticed too, nice aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Little bit of watery start, some fruits and malts. Ending is nicely hopped, mild alcohol comes up too, which is not very usual for pilseners.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2004
I could have sworn this was a munich helles. Much smoothermaltier and slightly more body than a pils. Either way- thie beer was really good on tap in Austira. Full of flavor with a great malty yet not too sweet aroma. Backed up with a perfect amount of hops. Great beer.

Marko (3933) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 2, 2004
A suprisingly good Austrian pilsener. Has a nice malty smell, and is golden coloured with a big rapidly wanishing head. Has quite a pleasant taste, with some bitterness. Maybe a bit bland, but quite enjoyable. A notch above every other Austrian pilsener/lager, and maybe even Austrian beer I’ve ever tried. And the cap’s really apriciated.

picked a bottle of this up at a tankstelle because it looked nice. golden, mild white grape aroma, alas not much else to it, very light bitterness, pretty bland

shrubber85 (7609) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Presentation in bottle is very nice but then goes downhill from there. Sweet grain aroma. Has a sour/bitter flavor that is a bit unpleasant. Not as much body as I would have expected.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2004
An orange beer with a fine though collapsing head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel - quite nice for a pilsener. The flavor is sweet caramel though very common for a pilsener. The body is thin.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Vienna: Pale yellow with thick white head. Not as sharp and assertive as others; slightly fruity and sweet. No metallic flavors associated. I prefer this over their others.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2003
June 2001 - Very disappointed in this. A very thin beer. Wouldn't waste my time on this one again. The only saving grace is that the bottle is cool and will make my next batch of homebrew look cool. :)

A very cool-looking bottle exactly like the picture shown! Brought back for me from Vienna (wasn't there a song "Vienna" by Ultravox? But I digress.) The head pours 2" thick, and then rapidly vanishes, like a cheap David Copperfield illusion. One of the more dry, herbal pilseners I've had in awhile. Certainly not what the US would think of as a "pilsener" due to its flavorful nature. Noticeably hoppy. Nice.
