2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
White creamy foam, mostly to full diminishing. Yellow to pale golden body, clear. The usual intense sweet malt aroma and light flowery of many industrial pale bock. Weak fruity aftertaste. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter. Medium to full body, creamy-sirupy texture, light alcoholic feel. It is not a very exciting beer.
The unfiltered draught version I drunk in Bavaria was more interesting: clean hoppy notes, full aroma and flavor of malt, weak fragrance of fresh fruity (apples). Unfiltered Hubertus: 7,3,7,4,13

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Found this on tap at Minneapolis' Gasthof's Restaurant. Fresh sweet lager aroma. Small head with good lacing. Head is mostly diminishing. Clear dark gold body. High in alcohol (6.8%) which is evident from the mouthfeel. A decent German bock, but not as good as some of the Austrian offerings I have had in the same style: Stieglbock and Zwettler Kuenringer Festbock

A pleasant but uninspiring Bock.To me it seems like a beer that has been put together by a committee-nothing too inspiring that might offend any one.Well balanced and not very interesting.

Very impressed with the all around flavor of this beer. Appearance could be better, but the taste is what counts.

Amber. Well balanced full nose. Big malty but strangely ’two dimensional’ taste.
