Matte smaak (in de verte wat drop...) met lekker bittertje, past niet bij een belovend fijn aroma. Niet de beste Bok.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2011
A clear light brown colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of caramel malt, sweet fruits with a little hop. The taste starts gentle. There is caramel sweet with some bitter, getting stronger, with a nice finish. The aftertaste stays for a while caramal with a little bitter.
