Best Amstel so far. First one that I’ve would buy again. Best beer I’ve found here in Zakynthos, Greece from the grocery stores.

Very nice. The last one of 7 seasonal Dutch bocks I got at my supermarket and one of the best. La Trappe and Jopen are less general available and maybe more original. This one by a Heineken subsidiary is quite good. Not too sweet, well balanced, just enough roasted malts, nice bitter hops, some licorice and a long dry bitter finish. Good to know that large scale brewers can produce such a good brew.

At the Dutch Bockbeer Festival in Amsterdam, this beer was awarded best Bock Beer 2014. And it’s truely a very good beer and a true Bock. The taste is complex - astonishing for a big brewing company. Sure, there are Bock’s I like more - but that’s my personnal taste. This beer is good - point.

Poured deep reddish brown with a dense tan head. Aroma of sweet berries and toasted malt. Medium body, quite smooth and roasted, flavour is medium sweet, lightly bitter.

33 cl. Pours a ruby red with no head. Aroma of espresso and chocolate. Taste is slightly bitter and hoppy. Palate is flat and would benefit from more carbonation. Overall good beer.

TtV (126) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle 30cl. Deep brown, reddish with a tiny off white head. Sweet aromas with some hops. Taste is not very complex, but easily drinkable. Bitterness wins over sweetness.

Mooie donkere herfst bock kleur, de geur is ook uitnodigend. Smaak valt tegen, niet het typische zoete karakter wat een herfst bock altijd heeft, en een hoop bitter.

Kenter (2) - Den Burg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2014 does not count
A slighty bitter bockbier with an absence of sweetness. For a big brewery I think it is a reasonble tasty beer.

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