Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2004
A clear caramel colored beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of spices, caramel, and hops. The flavor is very sweet and caramelic with notes of alcohol as well as hops in the end. The mouthfeel is sticky.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2007 Deep gold, decent head. Aroma of bread, with a metallic note fading into vegetables. Not really pleasant. Tasted better, with a sweet malt flavor balanced by a drying bitterness on the finish. Not too syrupy, but still not enamored with the sweetness of bock beers. NOTE: Rerate 10/14/07 as part of a BJCP tasting. Aroma lacked the metallic and vegetal notes this time around, otherwise the exact same comments. The improved aroma did help the overall score a few point though. Still not my bag.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Bottle. Amber color. White head fades quickly. Moderate lacing. Aroma is malty with touches of grassy hops. Taste is malty sweet with a decent hop finish. Nothing spectacular, but a fair beer.

Enniskillen (2045) - Salinas, California, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Aroma is tart, and sour, with a malt sweetness. Thick white head. Body is a deep gold. Taste is smooth and full, with a note of peach & alcohol. Very, very slight warming feeling that is very pleasant.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2004
Clear straw-amber body, medium off-white head. Cerealy aroma with hints of caramel and a grassy hops kick (a touch of skunk too). Body has some burnt sugars, caramel, and a grassy, zesty hops finish. Leaving this on the tongue leaves a metallic twang. A couple steps above macro-lagers but still along those lines.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Pailhead (6404) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is malty and contains caramel. Kind of makes me think of a caramel smelling pale lager. Pours and orangish-gold with a small white head that is short lasting. Very malty beer. Definite caramel in the taste. Alcohol is barely noticeable in the finish. Not much bitterness in the beer. Moderate malt and caramel aftertaste. Just like the smell, the taste makes me think of a caramel pale lager.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2004
(Served from a 5l mini keg) The nose is mostly malty with a touch of honey. The head was very full, but it fell fast. The palate is smooth rounded and fairly hoppy. The finish is long malty and warm. I think this sample benefited from being in a can.

obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 17, 2004
Slightly hazy deep golden color. Malt, spice, and fruit nose. RIch hoppy mid-palate with slight sweetness balancing it out. Refreshing tangy mouthfeel with a hoppier than expected finish.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Light orange in color with a bubbly head. Clean taste with a sweet caramel malt aroma and a touch of hops. Rich and malty flavors overall, combined with a toastiness and a slightly sweet, warm alcohol finish.
