Bottle in Hamburg, Germany. White head, transparent, no lacing, carbonated with a yellow hue. Malty aroma and flavor. Tingly mouthfeel. Light bodied beer. Unexciting and boring.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 82. This bottled brew from the brew pub in Hamburg Germany poured a very small head of finely sized clear colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body. The aroma contained notes of nutty bread and lager. The mouth feel was smooth mildly tingly and had a lingering bubbly feeling to it. The flavor was simply bready. Certainly not a bock beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poor head. Dry and quite malty. No special flavors. A thirst killer for a warm climate. I was disappointed, but for a standard lager it is pretty OK.

bottle. this doesn’t seem to be a bock, so why is that part of the name? Bland, bland, bland...there is no distinguishing flavour in this beer. grassy aroma and a bit of alcohol. flavour is gross, tastes like garbage...

Pale golden, frothy disappearing head. Good, dry-ish hay nose. Flavour is papery up front, followed up by sweetness. Finishes citrusy, with a papery bitterness.
