Fin (7040) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2012
Had this on tap at Schwarzer Bauer, Hausbrauerei, Nuremberg, Germany, Tuesday 5th June 2012 Pours reddy/amber with white head. Really tasty beer that impresses with a nice burnt toffee and good bittersweetness, quite full flavoured, very soft in the mouth with a blanket of gentle bubbles. I like the thick mouthfeel, this also has a fruity backbite. A7 A5 T8 P4 Ov15 3.9

Had this in route to Bamberg from Munich. They had no weizen so I read this one was the best here. I fantastic beer. One of my favorites for sure.

Bierkrug (2109) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2009 A great Heller Bock. Very fresh and crisp flavor with a nice finish. Great with the sausages. In my mind one of the best beers in Germany. Watch out they will sneak up on you since they go down so easy. Only availible in the springtime.

Very flowerly aroma, fruity and fresh. Dense white head, hazy yello color. Flavor is malty, sweet and fruity with light flowerly notes. Notes of honey, hoppy. Hop bitter finish. Very good, flowerly bock.

i loved altstadhof schwarzbier but this was still my favourite beer that i had there. amazing passionfruit aroma that is alwazs so inviting in kellerbiers but rare to find in a bock. tasted initially of passiona, little sign of the slightly offensive alcohol of some bocks. seems to have been very well lagered. some plum comes through with some orange pip dryness. not much bitterness there but the sweetness is very pleasant, not sweet or syruppy at all, and this is an amazingly drinkable bock
