Extra strong ruby-red Amstel Bock beer has a fine bitterness and a sweet, full taste.

With grolsch bok the best bock from the big dutch brands. This one is a little better in balance. Not too sweet, not too bitter, but an overall good balance.

Hue appearance and a coarse light brown scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid.

Pours a nice ruby brown colour. Smooth in texture and lightly carbonated. An appropriate autumn beer.

Voor ik serieuzer de echte bieren ingedoken ben vond ik dit de lekkerste bokbier van de grote brouwerijen. En dat vind ik nog steeds. Mooi donkerrood-bruin bier met cremekleurige schuimkraag. Geur van mout en caramel, gedroogd fruit. Smaak van gebrand mout, caramel en gedroogd fruit (hoe verrassend). Ietwat vlak van body, beetje waterig, geen complex bier wat smaak betreft. De nasmaak is lichtbitter en een beetje zoet, niet onprettig. Er zijn lekkerder bokbieren, maar voor een grote brouwerij is dit geen slechte.

Mainuh_man (175) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear red-brown with a frothy, light tan head. Fruity aromas of bubblegum, coughdrop. Beer goes almost immediately to roasted malt and herby hop bitterness, with little hint of the malt character that makes this variety nice. Very mild hints of cherry and some cereal grain. Full body witih a creamy mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, a poor version of bock beer. Some ok aromas, but otherwise, really pretty poor.

Alengrin (2085) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Industrial representative of the Dutch top-fermented autumn bocks. Yellowish, irregular, sticky foam, colour a dark mahogany brown with ruby hue, cristal clear. Caramelly nose with fruits (pear, cherry) and a perfumed, flowery accent, not unappealing for such a (comparatively) mass produced brew. Taste a caramelly malty, soft, rounded and sweet, with hints of nuts and coffee grounds and some leafy hops in the finish. Nothing too complex but enjoyable, like most top-fermented Dutch bock beers.

33cl bottle. Had this during my vocation in Greece. Malty and grassy beer. Enjoyable when served extra cold. Do not drink this above 10degC.

Burk på Kreta. Ser ut precis som en Cola. Doftar sött och gott med inslag av kaffe och choklad. Söt maltig smak som är Välbalanserad. Riktigt god.
