2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Deep golden to light amber coloured, thin, lacing foam; deep sweet-grainy/malty, a bit dusty nose, maybe some hops and alcohol in the background; slightly sweetish (honey) flavour, light (!) to medium bodied; short sweet-bitter finish with a "taste of honey" again. A Bock, yes, a bit thinnish unfortunately; lacks bitterness as a counterweight.....................

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, thanks to Ian. It pours amber, with a fizzy white head. The nose is toast, orange and metal. The taste is caramel, dough, metal, underlying sweetness, orange pith and nut. Light to medium body and high, fizzy carbonation. So-so.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Clear golden colour with a medium frothy white head. Sweet malty aroma. Initially sweet malty taste turning into a rather dry and medium bitter hoppy finish. Not bad, but also trivial for a Bock. The alcohol is very inconspicuous.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, courtesy of Pivnizub
Amber colour, low tanned head. Herbal hops on a otherwise grainy aroma. Fat fruity malt base, on the sweet side, light aromatic hops, could use a dry herbal kick. Oily mouthfeel, low on carbonation. Goes well with fatty cheese.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep dark golden colour with low head and smooth body. Nose of burnt malt. Taste of ripe grains, ripe hops, rich malt, strong alcohol, cloves and warm spruce. Not that easy to drink and it is quite bitter in the finish. Won’t be my favourite Bock but it is okay-like.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
If drunken cold this one develops a nice refreshing surprise. Bit alc in the aroma but quite flowerish with a bit of malt in the background. For a Bock very drinkable and fresh. Quite nice.
