Moravius (491) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2013
Vorerst meine vorletzte Flasche Heide-Bock - die Colbitzer Heide-Brauerei hat Insolvenz angemeldet, und ob der neue Eigentümer tatsächlich nach der für Mai 2014 angekündigten Fertigstellung des neuen Sudhauses dieselbe Qualität produzieren wird, bleibt abzuwarten. - Orangegelb. Erstaunlich schlank, fruchtig-herb, weich (das Etikett spricht von „quellfrischem Heidewasser"), vollmalzig, ohne die bei Böcken so oft anzutreffende klebrige Süße. Fruchtig-herber Hopfen. Ordentlich bitterer Abgang, langer Nachtrunk mit kräftiger Hopfenbittere. - Schön fruchtiger, herber Bock. Ich wünsche den neuen Eigentümern der Colbitzer Heidebrauerei viel Erfolg!

Bottle @ benzai thx to joes. Clear golden yellow colour with a small to non-excisting white head. Smells cardboard, malts, meh. Tastes very sweet, malty, nasty. Hate it. Medium body, quite a lot of carbo.

stevoj (2166) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Nice bock beer from Germany. Sort of sweet, yet bitter also.Aroma is sourish, taste is malty with some mild hop bitterness. Nice flavor, but looks kind of flat in the glass.

I’m not a huge fan of this one. Its cloying sweetness is distracting from a smooth, golden body that, with more subtlety, might have been a good beer.

BlackHaddock (3780) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Half-litre bottle: best before 30 Dec 2012, poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged pint vase @ home on 4 Nov 2012. Clear, bright and clean looking golden brew: on top a good, full snow white foaming crown. The nose is mildly caramel malty, with slight yeasty, cut grass and earthy notes. I expected a little more in the taste stakes: sweetish, malty and alcohol all evident but no real Bock type strength or depth. The finish is leaning towards a hoppy bitterness but the caramel sweetness almost blots it out. Not enough character for me. Went nicely with some Leerdammer, dry crackers and olives, but it just ’didn’t float my boat’ for a top Light Bock.

kevnic2008 (8092) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2012
Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, toasted grain, and florals. Flavor of grass, cereal and caramel.

Grima (2099) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2012
The beer in the glass is strong golden yellow, with pearly, soapy head. It smells malty-sweet and slightly sugary. Starts dominant malty and very sweet, subtle hoppy in the background. The middle part shows full-bodied malty, very tasty and pleasantly sweet. Goes into a malty-grainy, slightly sugary-sweet finish!
