Smells boozy with some candied malt and whisky aromas. Pours looking like lager. Pretty high carbonation. Tastes has alcohol sweetness, not a lot on the palate. Thanks to Boutip for this 500 ml bottle.

Fast dissipating head. Some cider and glue in the aroma. Taste: smooth in the beginning, turning into an apply, slightly vodka-ish aftertaste. This tastes like it has some body, with occasional hops in the mouth, and a fair amount of sweetness. You can’t detect the strength in this; certainly it is quite nice. Good.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

caribou43 (377) - SWITZERLAND - APR 25, 2016
I drank this beer in Lausanne with some friends. The body is yellow dark and not troubled. The carbonation is low, white foam. The taste is in the mouth sweet, wheat, discreet banana touch, few or no hop. It is a drinkable beer.

minutemat (3648) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours clear gold, thin receding white head. Aroma is hay, sweet wort and floral elements. Taste is smooth, sweet malts that cater to my sweet tooth well. The grainy element makes itself known and the malty sweetness does get a bit much, but I still liked it.

nickd717 (4000) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 15, 2016
500ml bottle. Had to tick this, the black - or yellow - sheep of the Andechser family. The beer pours clear yellow golden with a large white head. The aroma is bread dough and grain, quite mild indeed. The flavor is rather sweet and sugary, bready, and malty. Unnaturally sweet tasting. Not much hop to speak of. Clean and crisp feel with medium body. Of this one a fan I am not. Bergbock? More like Boregbock.

hackobock (3004) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2016
January 29, 2016. Bottle, best before April 7, 2016.
Clear golden with a large white head. Aroma is sweet malty with cereal, honey, grain, a touch of almonds and canned pear. Taste is sweet, malty and soft bitter. Finish is sweet cereal, honey, some pear notes, dried apricots, light crisp mineral and grassy bitterness with just a hint of alcohol. Medium bodied, soft to average carbonation, slightly oily texture.
Quite good, a bitt too much dried apricots and canned pears though.
