2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Sweetish, bit malty and with some flower-aroma. Nice and easy to drink but a bit dull.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep golden to amber colour with low head and smooth body. Nose of hops. Taste is basically Classic German Pilsener brewed as a Bock...therefore it is bitter hops, citrus fruits, low malt, metall and grass. Smooth texture. Easy to drink but a very unusual Bock and not really a positive surprise.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear amber gold with a medium to large sized white head. Soft sweet grain and a touch of malt on the nose. Sweet malt, chewy and malty, lots of bread here. Soft lingering malt into the finish, more malt and chewy grain. Drinkable, but unremarkable.
