Comments: Draught at Hopfhaus in Wien. I was quite impressed to encounter such a (moderately) complex beer from Ottakringer. Fun caramelly maltiness blended with plums, grass, honey.. Sweet, yet drinkable. Earthy, dark and fun flavours.

Tap at Ottakringer shop. Hazy reddish amber colour. Very neutral in both aroma and taste. Almost tasteless. Basically a bitter water.

Marko (5270) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 23, 2011
Humm, guessing this is it, as the Gsser Jubilumsbier is refered to mostly as "Dunkles Zwickl". Draught at the 3 Goldenen Kugeln, Seiersberg, Graz as the "beer of the month". Anyway, poured a darker, completely murky red colour. Fruity malty nose, nothing too special. The taste is pretty much more of the same, full and kinda ruined by some kind of acidity and yeastiness. Slightly underwhelming, but still better than the average Austrian lager and it did well to douse the fires the lovely 3 Goldenen Kugeln Country Cordon left in my untrained mouth. Ill probably rerate this at a point since Im not 100% sure if I should even be rating it.

Red color, soft creamy head, very stable. Aroma is malty, sourly-fruity with light roasted malt notes. Taste is malty round, pithy. Light sweetnesws and notes of roaste malt in the aftertaste.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - FEB 8, 2011
22/01 Draught at the 3 Goldenen Kugeln, Graz. It had hazy reddish brown body with medium, slightly off white head. Weaker, sourish aroma, also peachy. Very slightly sweet caramel flavor, balanced with grass hops, but although pleasant it was quite watery. No matter of its thin body, awarded us with quite long, mostly hoppy finish, sourish to slightly bitter, with some caramel sweetness emerging at the very end. Its definitely a Zwickl, not a Vienna, but Im not too impressed after all.

Shared at Ottakringer Shop by Cuso & Gurthnar, thanks. 0,2l from tap shared by 3. Amber hazy color, small off-white head. Strong smell of yeast and bread. Medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Tastes of bread, yeast, malts. Finishes with bread and yeast. Decent enough, overall not too interesting..

Saeglopur (1856) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Draught. Deep amber, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, slightly beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, flowers, grains. Tastes of roasted malts, red berries, flowers, caramel, grains, herbs. Mouthfeel is medium to light, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes roasty, medium bitter and a bit fruity. Nice! One of the best Vienna style Lagers from Austria and one of the very few enjoyable beers from this brewery. Really nice, fresh aromas and very quaffable.
