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.

Kastanjebruin, helder bier. Schuim trekt snel weg. Mout, gist. Bitterzoet, zuurtje op de nasmaak. Prikkelend, medium body. Niet onderscheidend.

Bottle from Albert Heijn, Den Haag. Poured a clear medium brown with a fizzy, short-lived light tan head. The aroma is yeast, light sweet malt. The flavour is moderate sweet with a light, smooth, sweet malt, light woody bitter hop palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

Fairly light for a bokbier. Pours an amber/ruby colour. Aroma malt, candied sugar. For commercial bokbier it is not too sweet, but it lacks complexity or too much in the way of excitement. It took me a long time to work my way through a six pack of these from the local super market.

Bottle 30cl. Deep brown, bit ruby. Medium off white head. Aroma has some sweetness, but somehow it is a bit chemical? Taste has carbonation and bitterness. Typical bok beer, but nothing special.

Typical Dutch seasonal bock. Not bad at all but also nothing out of the ordinary. Not too sweet with flavors of burned malts caramel some spices and mild bitterness in the finish. nice.

Smells like regular alfa beer, but a bit stronger. Colour is red, which I like. The taste is okay: you can notice it’s an alfa, only a bit heavier with darker hops.
