screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2005
Golden/amber colour. Has a grassy and malty aroma. Some sweetness in taste. MAlt and hopes as well. Comes with a bitter and long finish. A good lager!

Sigmund (6542) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2005
330 ml bottles, now available in Norway (Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget). I drank the first bottle at cellar temperature, the second one at fridge temp. Extremely powerful mouthfeel in both cases, you’d think the beer was much stronger than its 6.5% ABV (in a blind test I’d probably say 10-11%). This means that the alcohol dominates, but the malts and hops are evident too. Colour is deep golden / amber, large white head. Moderate aroma of spices, caramel, molasses and hops, some oak and leather too. Moderately sweet with a dry and bitter hoppy finish. I preferred the Einbecker Ur-Bock Dunkel to this one.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Bronze-golden with a nice but rather short-lived head. Full-bodied, slightly sweet - and then you’re hit by a sharp bitterness. The same brewery’s dark bock was always challenging you’re buds, but this is disappointingly one-dimensional. Still a nice beer, but far from excellent. 061099

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2005
Bottled. Clear amber colour. Grassy nose along with nuts and toffee. Nice malt aroma. Rich grassy backbone with a big malt profile. Bit of toffee here as well. Pretty rounded but still with some Co2. A bit ashy and dry-ish mouthfeel. Long, long finish. Abv is apparent.

Amber, bubbly white head. Full malty aroma of grass, crackers and toffee. Malty grassy flavour with toffee in the backgrtound. Good resiny finish.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2005
Orange-golden colour, small white head that disappears quickly. Not very impressive smell, bit grassy, german hops. Sweet taste with a nice hopbitterness, malty and wellbalanced. All in all a more than OK maibock.
