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

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.

- Alcoholpercentage van 6,5% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 its an alfa, only a bit heavier with darker hops.

Roodbruine kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruit, caramel, iets zoetig. Smaakt fris zoet, caramel en iets kruiden. Prima doorsnee bok.

Lekker zoet bockbier met de kenmerkende Alfa smaak. Mooie rode kleur en een heerlijke zoete geur. In het begin moest ik erg wennen aan Alfa bieren maar nu vind ik ze erg lekker.

Mooi donkerrood bier met een creme-kleurige schuimkraag. Geur van mout en gist, zoet smaak met een hint van gebrande mout. Voldoende koolzuur aanwezig. De nasmaak is licht bitter. Qua diepte valt hij tegen, wat vlak van smaak zonder een echte body. Geen blijvertje.
