A can from Austria. This is one of those beers I really don't know anything about, just an odd can sitting around the cheap seats in the LCBO cooler next to the malt liquors. Nice tan and red can design, though. Red and tan is a very under considered colour combo. Except maybe in WWII British desert rat shoulder badges.
Anyway, I suppose I ought to open the can and see what it is. Plenty of others seem to have been here before me, though. Maybe it's the Labatt Blue of Austria. Says Stiegl-Goldbräu (with the umlaut) in the fine print...sounds like it's going to be a light straw lager under a quickly dissipating white foam. Hey! I'm a mystic! Bit of richness to the malt, balanced and recessed astringent steel hops. A little juicey. Bit of grassiness to the finish. Not overly carbonated either. The BAers call it a marzen which they describe as:
...full-bodied, rich, toasty, typically dark copper in colour with a medium to high alcohol content...So when it is 4.9%, not dark copper, not toasty...it's...umm...the Labatt Blue of Austria?
