Pours a deep and golden beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with grass. The flavor follows the nose.

Koelschtrinker (17308) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 23, 2011
Natürlicher Antrunk mit sehr leichter Süße und angenehmer Hopfigkeit. Im Mittelteil kurz scharf werdened, hellmalzig, deutlich herb, dabei etwas dumpf. Vollmundig werdend, würzig-hopfig, zusammen mit dem Malz ausgewogen. Trotz der 7 Volumenprozent ist der Bock nicht besonders stark, da er nicht sehr malzlastig ist, setzt er sich deutlich von anderen Böcken ab. Zum Ende eher getreidig, die Würzigkeit ist gleich gebelieben, agiert aber nicht im Vordergrund und lässt so genug Spielraum für andere Aromen. Süffiger, aber nicht lascher Bock, der sich von anderen absetzen kann. Gut! 12/12/11/11/12/11

Bottle, thanks pivnizub. Hazy pale amber, creamy off-white head. Spicy nose, heather honey. Light spicy start, honeyish sweetness, herbal hops. Medium body, mellow dry mouthfeel, citric finish. Refreshing and dry bock.

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle (purchased at the brewery): Deep golden, a bit unclear, smaller off-white head; robust sweetish-bisquity nose, a tinge of alcohol and hops included; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour; citrussy and woody-hoppy aromas in the solid sweet-bitter finish. Not too aromatic, but a robust thirst-quencher......

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2010
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Slightly yeasty, bready (cara-)malty aroma with citrus-fruity, slightly fruity and herbal hoppy notes. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Slightly bready (cara-)malty taste with a tinge of oak honey and herbal accents; almost dry, slightly chalky and bitter hoppy finish with traces of alcohol. Dry and hoppy pale Bock; could have had a tad more malty sweetness. 30.V.10

Quack-Duck (9120) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2009
bottle from Bierzwerg. Hazy golden yellow colour, small and creamy white head. Malty-hoppy nose. Intensively malty with soem very nice and very spicy bitter and aromatic hops that give the beer a bitter-sweet character. Grassy and herbal flavours are also present, combined with a touch of yeast. A very pleasant experience.

PetrZalio (17) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 2, 2008
Orange colour,malty and grainy aroma, light spicy like Strong Märzen. Malty, honeyish unusual type of Bock, remind me light barley wine like Belgian Bush. Long dry grape finish. Good suprise for me..

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2008
Bottle, 6.5%. Lemony aroma. Hazy orange colour. Small, semi-stable head. The flavour is OK malty, a little alcohol. An OK bock. Well-balanced and nice, but not too interesting.
