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.

500ml Can. Pale gold no head. Apple juice and barnyard aroma. Hoppy. Clean apple flavours. Burnt malt notes. Woody faint caramel. Soapy perfumes. Not bad.

I actually visited the brewery in Austria. It was nothing special, but I liked their ad campaign: "Gut. Besser. Gösser." Heh. Umm, it's kinda refreshing but a bit watery for my taste. Inoffensive but not really worth a second try, ja?

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2008 Actually first had regular Gosser in Vienna a couple of years ago. Pale yellow in color with a foamy white head. Weak malty aroma, slightly sweet flavor. Light in alcohol. Not my favorite style, but palatable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear gold with high bubbly carbonation. Short lasted small white head. Bit of sweet malt in the aroma, and a touch of metallic hops. Smooth thin-medium bodied. Pretty bland malty flavour, balanced quite well. Very clean lingering sweet finish. Refreshing, and better than I expected for an "export" beer. - I should note its just under 40 degrees celcius while I'm rating this though.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Golden in color with a big fizzy head that doesn't last very long. It had a light bitter taste and after-taste. Just not that good.
