Heller, mild herber Antrunk. Dabei sehr mild, etwas muffig. Kaum süß, im Mittelteil wird das Bier sogar wässrig. Laff herb-getreidiger Abgang. 11/8/7/7//7

As "Heller Bock". Smooth and grainy beginning. Typical "Heller Bock" aroma with too much grain. Hints of golden fruits, not much bitterness, easy to drink but not too much depth. Grainy-sweetish aftertaste with hints of dryness. Ok.

24th June 2015: large bottle (as Heller Bock) split between four at the Shrewsbury Bottle Exchange meeting, cheers Mat. Was not too sure what to expect: pleasantly surprised. Poured a clean golden amber, the head an off-white blanket. Malty nose leaning towards sweetness, the taste similar with a mild herbal twist and a slowly rising bitterness as you finish each sip. A very nice beer all round with enough going on to hide the alcohol level.

Once again in the Dampfe before going to football. Luckily it is may so we had some Maibock. Due to the very cold draught it was very easy to drink but in the back you knew it would hit you totally. Aromas of vanilla, bit caramel, some hops and sweets. Good piwo, especially when drunken that crazily cold.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 On tap @Dampfe. Clear deep golden colour with low head and medium-smooth body. Nose of mild hops. Taste of mild hops, mild strong, warm hay, clover and malt. Hints of strong alcohol and roses. Easy and nice to drink, quite malty, and you won’t notice the strong alcohol at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(from the tap at the brewpub) Clear and dark amber colour with a medium-sized, slightly off-white foam, slowly lacing. Aroma of toasted malt with liquorice and a dense herbal hoppy background. Sweet flavour, toast-malty taste with a touch of caramel; medium to full body, smooth carbonation; quite sweet but aromatic malty finish with a late arriving bitterness and a light hoppy blend; liquorice in the aftertaste. Quite dark for a classic Maibock, but nonetheless a tasty and warming brew. Well-done (16.05.06).

On tap (@the brewpub): Clear amber coloured, mid-sized off-white head; sweet malt in the nose, distinctive traces of caramel and toasted malt and some bitterness; first sweetish-bitter flavour, switching over to a drier maltiness; quite medium bodied; sweet bitter finish with a big touch of toasted malt, again. A pleasant, well rounded, moreish Bock. So far the best brew from Borbeck........
