Somewhat deceptive looking, as it pours a golden amber color. Has decent caramel malt flavors, but really focuses on hops. Nice citric/piney hop presence, reminds me of SN Pale Ale for some reason.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2004
What’s with breweries and green bottles?!? Pours a light amber (this is a Bock!?!) with a decent head and decent lacing. Aroma was pretty skunky! I almost wanted to pour it out at this point, but I’m glad I didn’t. Flavor is definately to style, which honestly suprised me: No skunk and despite the pale color. Not very complex, though. A bit of sweetness comes through with some spices. Palate is creamy with a tad bit of astringency going on. Odd. Overall it’s worth a try, but nothing special. This ain’t no Celebrator or Salvator, but not bad.

Light in color but not in tatse. A hint of spice in the nose. But still a good drink.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2004
Grainy aroma. Dark golden color, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, nasty bitterness, very malty, little fruity, syrupy and still a little dry. There's something is these Einbeck beers that I don't like. They have this strange yucky bitterness.

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2004
Light ruby color. Small scum of a head on top. Aroma is spicy with some slight malt. Taste is decent malt with a little caramel. Not sweet and has lots of nutty taste. Nothing special.

oli (108) - DENMARK - APR 22, 2004
An average beer and nothing to get excited over.There was a nice heavy malt taste and a bitter aftertaste.Medium golden body and thin head.A bit boring to drink actually.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2004
a nice classic, in maibaock beers. It's golden-yellow tones, nice foamy head. In the nose there is a difference between tap and bottle. The bottle is more aromatic, possibly due to the temperature. The taste is malty at fist, fruity and a closing of bitters, which invite you to drink more than one beer. Excellent quality.

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2004
Crisp light amber with thin but long lasting head. Not strong but interesting warm-spice aroma. Thicker body that you would guess from the appearance. Spice notes dance lightly on the tongue. Overall mild and light tasting. Easy to drink more than one.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2004
Poured a copper color with a small white head and some lacing. Fruity (apple), earthy, slightly bitter aroma. Not skunked, although at a quick sniff it could be misconstrued as so. Crisp and refreshing hoppy taste, although lagerish at the same time. A nice example.

jgb9348 (4851) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2004
Copper/orange coloured body with a minimal whiteish head. Aroma of some fruit, but otherwise powerful bittering scents. Medium-bodied; Strong flavour of fruit and malt lasts in the mouth for a long while. Aftertaste shows some bitterness and a slight sweetness. Overall, not a great beer, but that is to be expected from this brewery. I shared this bottle with Phil (haddon90) at the Flying Saucer in Nashville, Tennessee...thanks Phil!
