Pale colour, hazy with a medium head. Hoppy grassy smell. Bittersweet taste with strong hints of hops and notes of flowers. Nice mouthfull, not too boozy. Overall nice subtle balanced hoppy Bock.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Rated at the brewery/restaurant Nov 2011.
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is moderately malty (grain, husks, bread), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of paint, concrete, bubble gum.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, unclean, husky.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Among the worst brews I had in the Bamberg region on this trip. Really clunky with a poor aftertaste. Very sad, just because I expect this place can do better.

Pale with a thick head. The aroma is somewhat bready. Firm and dry with some vaguely doughy pale malt character. Good bock.

bottle at du sonne in bischberg. rich medium-dark caramel colored body with an off-white head. rich texture, sharp and oily. toasted chestnuts, oily piune tar, toffee, cocoa, rich almond syrup, caramelized maple-coated nuts... the descriptors just keep coming. exceptionally crisp and biting, evidence of perfect lagering time and temperature. nutty, sharp toffee presented in the finish with a medium-to-full body. wonderful.
