Got this one for my birthday in a nice 2 liter bottle which made it a special experience. When I opened the bottle, it was like there was coming a cloud out of it. I poured the beer into a glass and it had a nice ruby red colour. I drank 3 glasses of it and I liked it. Nice aroma, nice sweetness, nice taste.
From Dec 2006
Poured from 11.2 oz swing top bottle(A and 06 were dotted on the label) a cloudy reddish gold with a large head of foam that subsided quickly leaving a fine layer and some lacing.
The smell is very sweet malt nose..smells buttery.
The taste up front is big on the caramel sweetness followed by some hop bitterness midway through and through the finish. Not bad at all and actually, the more I sip, the better I like it.
Try it and see what you think.
Bottom line: A pretty malty sample of the style and if you like malty lagers, this one will surely please you.

From old tasting notes. Cloudy Orange copper color. Huge rocky beige head. Sweet toasted malt nose. Creamy sweetish malt flavor has a wonderful burnt caramel character. Nicely balanced with a dry spicy hop finish. Quite tasty. hauxe (1015) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2015
Rated from old notes. Nauseating sweet smell; tasted milder and dryer than expected. Disappointing. Could be lethal if had in quantity. TorbenJensen (1586) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2015
The reddish-brown beer foam fine and smells, not much, but still spicy hops and malt. The flavor is excellent sweet and hoppy with a slight tang of something fruity and a lovely sweet caramel taste. The aftertaste has only a little hop bitterness. Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2017 One of the very few Viennese lagers in the Low Countries, unfortunately no longer made nowadays. From old and very concise notes: frothy, off-white head on an attractively deep copper robe, malty, nutty, mildly (dried) fruity, soft floral hoppiness in the finish. Kind of a free interpretation of its style, which made it all the more interesting.

Soft amber beer, tastes indeed a bit German. Malty and only mildly sweet. Bit too subtle. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2013
