Can in Tomsk, Siberia. The can proudly says that it’s Austua’s Finest Beer or something like that. If this is true then God help that country. Tastes slightly hoppy and gassy.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a fairly dull pale lager type beer, with a few more floral hops thrown in there for good measure. It has a somewhat disturbing green tinge to it’s golden colour too. It’s better than most North American macros, but probably not worth its additional cost.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(can) Aroma is sweet with a hint of apricot/peach. Large amount of head on pouring. Taste non-offensive. Sweetness does not come out much in the flavor and only a vague hint of malt and hops. Another mild Austrian brew that would taste good after a day of skiing but not when you want a good beer flavor

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned - 500ml. Limpid golden body topped with a thin and diminishing bubbly head. Decent malty/bready aroma with some herbal and flowery notes. Mouthfeel is refreshing, hoppy and fairly carbonated. It ends with a good bitter final that also leaves some bready hints on the palate. This is a decent Helles to drink when you eat a hotdog on Stephansplatz in Vienna.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml can- Darker golden body with a thin head. Aromas are mild. A combonation of cirtus and hops. Taste is sweet, subtle hops, and a little too weak to get much else. Crisp and refreshing. Decent.
