On tap @ Zum Weissen Hirschen, St. Wolfgang. Pale golden pour with one finger white head. Average head retention andll lacing. Usual nose, malty, grainy, some corn, grassy. Thin to medium body, softly carbonated. Regular texture, smooth on the tongue. Mildly bittersweet taste. Aroma also quite usual, grains, malts, corn. Hay and grass notes. Watery and light, very subdued. Mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Overall, average lager. Good thirst quencher but nothing exceptional. Decent.

Lahev (Díííík...!): Golden, hazy, small and lacy off-white head, metallic and grainy nose, some noble hops from behind; robust dry bitter flavour, light bodied, fizzy and tart; dry lingering bitter finish. Very simple brew, not a great pleasure...

Bottle, poor sedimentation respectively protein haze, ok slightly hoppy aroma, slightly bitter taste, but just not exciting. Not enough for a good pale ale

(Keg at a biergarten in Linz, 20170529) The beer poured clear and golden. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, metal and mildly grain. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, metal, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A decent sweetish lager.

Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter hoppig met een heel lichte pils smaak. Op zich goed als je een laag alcohol bier wilt drinken maar daarmee boet je wel iets in aan smaak. Uiteindelijk is dit wel veel smaakvoller dan de geheel alcohol vrije bieren.

Helder lichtgeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en licht zoet. Tevens ietwat waterig met weinig body. Sporen van gras en hooi aanwezig maar niet echt overduidelijk. Standaard bier.

0,33l bottle. Clear pale yellow colour with very quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: Soft hay with booze. Taste: Has a sourish start with a sour/lightly bitter mouthfeel. Light body with fizzy carbonation. Short sourish finish. Okey, this isn’t a märzen at all. Too light bodied, lacks the colour and the rich malty caracter.

33cl bottle from Sebilinz, as part of the Euro Local Swap, many thanks! Pours slighty hazy dark golden colour with a huge most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of mild bitter hops, citrus. Taste of intense bitter hops, some green hops, citrus, spicy, nothing special.

Bottle from the Euro Spar in Fürstenfeld. Shared with ogivlado. Clear pale golden body, medium head, long retention, lively carbonation. Classic pils appearance really. The hops rule the lean aroma, citric and herbal notes on some vague light malty sweetness. Dry taste, some eggy maltiness, thin herbal hop touch. Too light, too lean, but not bad. Vague citric notes. Hm. Slightly salty minerally finish, dry, almost no aftertaste. Solid light lager, certainly better than your average industrial pils, but not much.

Bottle from the Euro Spar in Fürstenfeld. Misty orange-golden body, lively carbonation, small thick white head. The aroma definitely shows some citric notes, tangerine heading towards mandora/orange mainly, sweetish, some vague touches of oxidation perhaps making it just slightly honeyish. Light, kinda nice actually, but not quite. A strange dry note comes on later on. But what will the taste bring? Well, more of the same. More citric clementine/mandora hoppiness going herbal and just slightly sweetish in what’s otherwise a lean, dry body. I would have probably called this a lager at first in a blind tasting if somebody asked, it definitely feels that way. Vaguely, just vaguely bitter, salty slightly hoppy finish, herbal. Very light honeyish touch of oxidation. In the end that dry salty finish even overrides the aromatics of subsequent sips, making this less appealing. Well, almost a solid macro try at this.

Amikor kinyitottam az üveget, csak arra emlékeztem, hogy régebben (jó tíz éve) amikor Ausztriában jártam, mindig ezt a sört vettem és amikor belekortyoltam rá is jöttem hogy miért. Igen intenzív íze van, az első csepptől érezni azt a határozott keserű komló- és gabonaízt, amit kifejezetten szeretek a cseh sörökben. A habja kicsit gyorsan elül, de a szénsavasság sokáig bent marad a korsóban. Ha van valami ami miatt kicsit lepontoztam, az az alkoholtartalma, ami 5,4%, nekem túl erős, egy kicsit gyengébb változatban kiváló lenne, de ha nincs cseh sör a környéken, ezt fogom venni továbbra is Ausztriában :D

Clear golden with little white head. Aroma is honey, noble hops, a tad malt, herbal notes, some dish water as well. Taste is sour carbonation, flat dusty hop bitterness, a bit citrus and dish water again. Drinkable and not watery, so actually a promising proof of concept.

500 ml bottle. Pale yellow colour, small head quickly vanishing, no lacing, soft carbonation. Nose is light malty, neutral odour. Aroma is close to non alcoholic beers, a little bit of sweetish malt, light bitterness, watery. Short finish. A needless compromise between non alcoholic and real beers.

5.2%ABV. Pilsener. Tapped out gold. 6°SRM. Nose is light, beery and lager like. Carbonated. Palate is biscuits, pretzels, flour. Hops are noble giving this a very hop-forward palate overall. Finish is brief-medium with a lean hoppy bitter. Overall, a very pleasant hoppy lager.

Tasty again for a great price in austria. Cheaper than water, how can anyone complain? Head disappeared quickly. Nice taste then the bitterness kicks in which some may like. I bought two and will probably drink them both. How’s that for an endorsement?

Pours a clear, pale yellow with a fluffy medium head. Aroma of green apples, grass, fresh cut wood, sweet white bread, bit of honey, hints of herbs. Taste is nicely balanced between medium sweetness and light to medium bitterness. Light to medium body with above average carbonation, slightly oily. Bittersweet, grassy finish.
A bit watery, but a nice, full-flavoured Pils. I’ll gladly repeat what I already said about their Pale Ale: I’ve had worse from better breweries. Would buy again.
