A somewhat dark, clear beer with a firm layer of foam. It has a mixed aroma of yeast and malt. It tastes quite bitter with a dry palate. Not a very special beer. Een ietwat donker, helder bier met een stevige compacte schuimkraag. In het aroma een mengeling van gist en mout. De smaak is enigszins bitter en met een droge afdronk niet echt een speciaal bier.

0,3l fles 2013, geen fijn bockbier, het begint al met een wat typische geur die ik niet kan thuisbrengen heeft wel wat weg van likeur naast de gebrande mout. De smaak is erg zoet met op de achtergrond gebrande mout en eindigt in een zurige namaak. Bier is niet in balans, dat is jammer.

This a disappointing bock, considering that it comes from one of the better Dutch pilsener breweries. It’s weak, watery and too sweet for my taste.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2013
Dunkles Bernstein mit feiner Crema. Süßer Karamellmalzduft und Geschmack. Wird nur schwach zartbitter gegen Ende. Mir zu süß und zu aromenarm, langweilig obendrein.

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.
