tomekk1978 (759) - Ząbki, POLAND - APR 4, 2015
Aromat: głównie słodowa (zboże, chleb, herbatniki) słodycz i alkohol. Gdzieś w tle leciutkie akcenty chmielowe (ziołowo- kwiatowe). Po chwili także niewielkie utlenienie. Barwa: słomkowa / jasno złota, wyraźnie zamglona (po dolaniu wręcz nieklarowna). Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i niezbyt trwała. Smak: słodycz, złamana kwaskowością. Zboże, herbatniki, nawet lekki karmel oraz miód, z nutą alkoholową. Goryczka ( z akcentami ziołowymi, kwiatowymi i owocowymi) niewielka, delikatna i krótka. Średnia pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie, lekko szczypiące / piekące odczucie w ustach i nieco alkoholowy, aczkolwiek delikatny finisz. Odrobinę oleista konsystencja.

Sweet mild aroma,heavy sweetness in taste. Light murky color with lazy lacing that lasts. Gets too undrinkable after half a glass.

MichaelAwesome (5176) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2015
Ein sehr schöner und teilweise fruchtiger Bock mit einer recht spritzigen Note, etwas ungewöhnlich viel Süffigkeit und viel Frische, die vollkommen unerwartet kommt. Vanille, etwas Butter und ein etwas Blumigkeit im Hintergrund. Zu empfehlen.

McTapps (5182) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle from Dilo in Bochum. The beer has got a hazy golden colour with a steady airy head and medium body. Aroma of bread and yeast. Taste of yeast, clover, bread, wheat, mild fruits and green bananas. Flowery finish. Solid beer.

jjsint (1212) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle from Bacchinalia, Cambridge. Impenetrably cloudy yellow-orange. Banana, lemon, dough and caramel in the bouquet. Taste is sweet, tropical fruits combine with caramely richness with just a hint of bitter hop in the end. Thick, chewy palette and just the right amount of carbonation. This is gorgeous.

leaparsons (8669) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
