WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Great malty aromatic low-alcohol delight
For an "alcohol-free" Austrian beer this is a taste sensation and pleasant surprise. I was expecting a light easy-drinking Pilsner style but this has a real aroma of sweet malts, immediately reminding me of "Cornwell's Extract of Malt" syrup. While not overly sweet, this really is a tasty, complex beer with the low-bitterness washed over by the sweet malt and hints of pie crust and raisin. How they got such a subtle and complex blend of tastes and aromas in there I'll never know, but it's a brew that could go well as an after-dinner special, even with dessert.
