I’m a big fan of their regular pilsener, but this bock beer is not up to that standard. It’s weak, watery, mild flavor profile with caramel, malts and light bitter. Alcohol scent and taste runs through it. It’s ok, but not something you look forward to to have again.

Bought a bottle at the AH. The beer has a dark amber color and large and cream colored head, CO2 level is excellent. In the aroma tones of fruits and caramel. The taste is like the aroma and a little sweet. The finish is nice and has a light bitter. A pretty standard bock, not bad, but definitely not the best one.

30cl bottle at home. Clear amber/brown with a medium white head. Light body with high carbonation. Starts sweet with a bitter finish. Caramel, dark fruits and malts. A very pilsnerish bock, and I mean that in a good way.

Very pale and not so tasty bock beer. It drinks like water. Of the big dutch brabds this must be one of the worst.

30 .cl bottle @ home, bought @ Albert Heijn. Clear ruby brown with a thin off-white head. A bit of a swampy aroma with some malts, not really that good. Taste is soft, unoffensive and a bit boring. Some roasted malts, some hops but nothing exciting. Bit of a letdown because I highly appreciate their pilsener.
