2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Süßer Antrunk mit typischer aber noch milder Bockbierwürze, die im Mittelteil stärker wird. Hier erscheint sie mittelstark mit herbem Unterton, etwas eintönig. Im Nachgeschmack sit das Bier sanfter, soll heißen süßer, wobei auch die Würze stärker wird.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle, imported by Shelton Bros, date marks are unchecked: Pours a clear deep copper orange with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet oxidized caramel malty nose that has some light fruity complexity. Starts with pretty good fullness and a chewy, doughy caramel sweetness with some drier, lightly oxidized cardboard character and a mild light fruitiness before a semi-sweet finish. Could be a little fresher and more balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml brown bottle.
It pours a nice amber color with a foamy white head. The head dissipated pretty quickly with a bit of lace.
The smell is like dough and caramel with a hint of alcohol. It is simple, but effective.
The flavor is dough, caramel, and a nice bit of fruitiness with pear and apple being the main flavors. There is a smidge of bitterness over this with mild alcoholic burn.
Overall this is a solid bockbier, not the best, but not the worst.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2010 .5 liter bottle. Pours a mostly clear deep copper with a slightly diminishing head. Aroma is honey sweet with a sharp kick slightly dark toasted malts, and cara vienna with a slightly off vegetal herbal hop aroma. Sweet sharp flavor with lots of pale and slgihtly toasted malts with an herbal earthy bite in the end. Somewhat smooth but has almost too much wierd malts and becomes a bit sharp or prickly.
