Overall, same old world-wide lager that appeases the masses. Refreshing quencher. Not as bad as some, not as good as others. Slight alfalfa finish and a tinge of hop bitterness.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
"Austria’s Finest Beer", according to the label. Hmmm... not according to our database. Or my tastebuds. Pale gold, 1cm head showing fair length. Quite a clean malt-driven aroma with faint lemony hops and a hint of fresh mint. Sweet and malty on the tongue, with a metallic finish that didn’t register immediately but became increasingly prominent. Quite bready. Reasonable body, moderate carbonation. Tastes like they use a decent malt but low-quality hops. (33cl bottle branded ’Gosser Beer’, Amatos, bb 12/05)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Very smooth sessional lager. Clear pale golden colour with a small head. Very well balanced and showing some lovely chewy malt and bread. If they made lager like this in Australia on a wide scale then I may never have found the need to go in search of better beer! Could do with some more bitterness, though.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can Golden yellow in colour. Large quickly dissipating white head with very tiny bubbles. The aroma was of stale bready malts, sweet floral hops and a bit metallic. The flavour was a bit chemical, very sweet, some light wheat and grainy. Harsh mouthfeel, thin body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes sweet, thin, medium length.
