3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden color with big white head. Aroma is sweet-malty, like a good Helles, but more intense. Taste is sweet at first, then the grains take over, then sweetness again, clean finish with hints of esters and alcohol. Smooth carbonation, oily mouthfeel. A solid Bock. ABV is well hidden.

500ml Bottle - As a big fan of the Andechs brewery, this one is not their best. Very smooth and easy to drink considering the abv, but it lack’s body.
