Stiegl is a clear, golden straw coloured lager that hails from Salzburg, Austria. It's brewed by the Stieglbrauerei zu Saltzburg and clocks in at 4.9% alcohol. The brew comes in an awesome, iconic red and cream coloured 500mL can. It has considerable carbination and a fluffy white head.
The aroma is very grainy and grassy. There's a fairly nice balance between grainy malts and a mild bitterness. There are sweet grass notes. Stiegl is a genuinely easy-drinking brew. Put two or three cans in front of me, and they'll disappear at an unreasonable rate.
The flavour won't blow you away, but it's very reliable. And the aesthetically pleasing packaging helps this beer find its way into my fridge pretty frequently.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
