DSCF1928Well, here’s Austria’s most popular beer, a concept that the brewer seems to have confused with being Austria’s finest beer.  Popular does not mean fine.  The most popular beer in the world is Budweiser.  The most popular beer in Canada is Budweiser.  Ye gods!  Yeah, seriously, go back and read that again, I’ll wait.  Okay, that doesn’t mean that Budweiser is better.  What makes you a popular beer is being light tasting (lacking in character) and refreshing (watery).  Congratulations, Gösser!  You have really hit the mark.  As for me, I seem to have an affinity for beers that have a lot more character but aren’t all that popular…and in fact really upset some people.  For whatever reason, I can really relate to that.  Well, the Oscars are dragging on but my beer is already done.  I’ll have to track down something else to drink if I’m going to make it all the way to the Best Picture award.
