Very nice beer, but it lacks the characteristic bock flavour. Nice and mild full flavour.

Countbeer (4028) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2010
Bottle: Nice very light brown vast foamy head on top of a clear orange brown beer. Smell sweets, spices, (toasted) malts, caramel, alfa pilsner and yeats. Taste is a very well balanced sweet dark fruity bitter mix. Low to mid carbo, fruity, spices, malts, long dark fruity bitter aftertaste.

dirkbreedveld (287) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2004
This is a nice soft flavoured bokbeer. Nice brown-red color. Nice foamy head. Very malty smell, taste aswell. Subtle use of bitters, not to sweet, and that is just the way i like it.

caesar (4710) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2002
Rerate 2002: Weaker than last year. Still the smooth palate, but it has become a more average bock. Original rate: 4. One of the better bocks i have to say. Smells very good, bocky. Dark brown appearance. Sweetness, hops, typical bock brew. But overall everything a good bock needs is present.

skortila (4343) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2002
Nice look; dark, beautifull head. Malty, fruity aroma. Smooth a little spicy, malty taste. Smooth, good palate.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2005
Appearance is dark brown. Like the Alfa pilsener, it’s a fresh, balanced taste but then a bock. Very nice palate, malty. Overal one of the better bock’s to drink a lot of and still end up without a headache.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2008
Bottle, 6.5%. Weak bready aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Very small head. The flavour is nicely malty with a little brown sugar. Good peppery notes, well-balanced.
