3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Getestet habe ich den Bock direkt nach dem Hellers Eurobock, wobei auffällt das dieser hier deutlich weniger süß ist. Die anfängliche alkoholische Süße ist angenehm und geht lückenlos in einen würzigen Ton über, der aber später wieder zu, Süßen zurückkehrt. Bodenständiger und süffiger Bock, erscheint "massengeeignet".

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the Kick Off. Deepish gold pour with a large white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is bland, pils malt, hay, booze. Flavour is quite sweet, lots of plain sweetness, not malty, followed by a dry finish and boozy aftertaste. Not very pleasant going down. Not much hop character to speak of. Overly sweet and nothing works here for me. Would not try again. Where’s all the rich malty flavour? Could easily be mistaken for a malt liquor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Gambrinus. Absolutely transparent sparkling gold, with a billowing cloud of foam, leaving sticky lace. Very biscuity, grassy, a bit spicy like citrus zest, with an alcoholic and doughy malty profile. Sweet, but drying at the same time. Loads of biscuit malt and grassy/hay like hops bitterness with a sting of alcohol. Medium/full bodied, creamy, not an easy drinker, but an enjoyable one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at Olde New York in State College PA this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized soapy white head that produced some lacing. The aroma was sweet sugar, candied fruits and faint vague hops. The flavor was tangy and sweet with strong notes of sugar, candied fruit and light floral hops. The finish was long, tangy, sugary and fruity. Smooth and full bodied. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap. It is fabulous. Thick, rich caramel flavors blend with a subtle bit of noble hops for an easy-drinking but full-flavored experience.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2014 On tap; pours golden color, looked like a standard lager. Taste was somewhat bitter/acidic for my liking. Overall an easy drinking beer though there are many better out there. RERATED 05.20.14; tried again .. overall OK, but compared to the Ayinger Maibock, not nearly as good. Quite grassy/grainy

Had at Lowenhaus in Rome. Poured clear dark gold with huge manilla foamy head. Looks delicious. Aroma malty, slightly boozy with a bit of banana. Flavor too watery, slight sweetness, grassy dry finish Overall, could be much better.
