3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Excessive packaging for an average beer. Came in a cardboard magnetic sommelier case with two glasses and a Latin-German looking woman and Erdinger advertising all over the box. I can’t figure out whether they think people will keep the box or not. It has a magnet in it. But it’s cardboard. Anyway, dark brown bandy, off-white head, soapy lacing, looks fairly attractive, like the box...but when you inspect closely it’s good, but not as fancy as you might be expecting...just like the box. Sweet grain, dried fruit aroma, a bit of yeastiness, lactose. Taste is semi-sweet, and I see in the deScription that it’s not going to be "too sweet, as is the case with so many bock beers." I would argue they played it a bit too safe on this one. The taste is not as flavourful as I would have hoped. Pleasant sweet grains. Over all, decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: hazy brown with two fingers of fluffy light tan head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: banana, dark fruit, toffee, vinous. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, very mild bitter. (7/10) Palate: full body, moderate to low carbonation, lingering warming finish. (4/5)
Pretty in-spec example of the style. Mild and smooth, perhaps a bit too much so: the utter absence of hop character is normal, but a little more intensity across the board would be nice. Still, easy-drinking and good. (15/20)
