On draught at a Zurich airport hotel.
Malt, a hint of smoke, crisp herbal finish.
Too thin - a stonger version of this could have been a great beer! SinH4 (6554) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2015
Amber color with big head. Aroma is straightforward malts. Taste is sweet caramel malt, then bitter towards the end and a heavily metallic finish. Oh boy. Nothing special and not pleasant. Drinkable until you start swallowing. MichaelAwesome (6546) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2013
Ein schön klassisches Vienna ohne Schmickschnack. Etwas Karamell, ein paar Nüsse und dazu noch eine erstaunliche Süffigkeit. Etwas derber als erwartet und ein leicht bitterer Abgang, doch alles in allem durchaus in Ordnung.
