GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2007
[Botte from Little Germany] Deep amber colour with a thick white head. Deep malty nose, sweet and plummy, peach, toffee apples. Full body, lots more malt on the palate, with a spicey hop bite in the finish. Great stuff.

MiP (15172) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle, 7.0%. Clear brown colour. Small head. The flavour is quite malty, with pepper to balance. A little yeast flavour too. The flavour might not be exceptional, but it is very well-balanced.

Koelschtrinker (16429) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Angenehm würziger Antrunk. Vorerst mild wird der Bock schnell mit malziger Unterstützung kräftiger und sogar minimal alkoholisch. Im Mittelteil auch etwas kräuterartig, das Aroma ist klar auf die frische Würzigkeit konzentriert. Zum Ende hin etwas karamellig, weniger malzig, dafür deutlich hopfiger. Spritziger Bock! Test vom 5.5.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,11,13,6,12 - 11,10

scotty (1133) - SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2006
A deep golden colour, good thick white head leaves an attractive lace. Typically sweet and malty, with a nice bitter edge which lingers for a while as the 7% alcohol gradually makes its way to the grey matter. Very smooth and dangerously easy to drink, a good flavoursome beer. From Little Germany,Grangemouth.

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2011
Geruch süßlich, malzig. Süßlich beeinflußter Start, der bald danach mehr zum Malz tendiert und noch etwas süßer wirkt. Hier im Mittelteil kommt dann auch der Alkohol mit ins Spiel, wirkt aber nicht übertrieben dominant. Im Schluß weiterhin malzig-süßlich mit ganz leichter Herbe. Okay.Test vom 16.6.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

EithCubes (5475) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle by 23.8.12. Honey malt with a harsher florality. Orange body with a rocky beige head. Taste is only faintly sweet with a much greater bitterness that eventually comes to dominate. Clover honey, drying, white and Welch’s grapes, spicy hops in the back. Layered malt that hides the alcohol pretty well, medium body, overall pretty well crafted but darned if I don’t have to stop after a couple of ounces.
