BeerSin (25) - Immensee, SWITZERLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Relativ helle Farbe für ein Stakbier. Der weisse Schaum hät gut. Riecht malzig süss, vielleicht etwas Honig. Schöner voller Körper. Geht vom süssen Malz über in eine gute Bitterkeit. Ausgewogen. Dieses Bier kaufe ich wieder!

RW80 (1860) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2014
Apperearance: Clear medium yellow color with an average, frothy off-white head. Head leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma: moderate malty, sweet caramelised malts, light sugar an alcohol, Taste: Is moderates sweet from the caramelised malts and light bitter grassy hops. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle from a local drink shop!
Pours strong golden yellow with flat head. Smell has pale malts, hay and herbs. Starts spicy-malty, with some sweet grains and hay. Middle part has lots of hay, floral hops and spicy notes. Goes into a strong malty-spicy finish with flowery hops and some herbal notes. Typical interpretation of a german Bock!

bartlebier (3255) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2014
50cl bottle bb06/2015 as Kloster Starkbier, 7,3%. A very light, transparent, runny hay yellow pour, dull foam. Nose of nothing with a gin fume lining, very disappointing. Tastes just like their underwhelming Spezial with some apple juice, honey and very - too - late delicate almond cake notes. @7,3% little payoff for the calorie investment and pointless at an ecologically sustainable level.
