Maj Bocken er en øl med tysk oprindelse. Flot skum, indbydende duft. Farven er varm og gyldenrød. Brygget med store mængder münchenermalt, som giver en dejlig maltsødme. Moderat humlet med traditionelle tyske humle-sorter. En øl med karakter. Kan nydes alene eller til et solidt måltid mad.

ClubGonzo (5420) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle. Clear orange body with an insane, yet controlled carbonation...fascinating...what is this, The Blob or something? :-P After taking a three minute break to let the foam settle, I’m able to catch a few whiffs: a strange combo of malty licorice hints settled in toffee, elevated by sour/fruity tones of grapefruit and kiwi. This aroma really can’t make up its mind: "am I an APA or a Dunkel?" Anyway, the taste kinda lands on a bock-style profile, at least: more maltiness comes forth, with only a few hints of sprucey, herbal hoppiness. Extra points for originality, this is not yer everyday bock, at least. A bit strange, but an OK beer, all in all - nothing more.

olsvammel (5979) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a hazy golden-orange liquid with a small dirty white head. Flavour of caramel, fudge, bread, hint of home made booze. A bit stingy mouthfeel, I didnt like it. Also light body and high carbonation. I didn’t like this beer at all. The mouthfeel was to rough and it felt enhanced by the flavour.

Ingevara (904) - SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2010
Big head. Smell of artificially sweet banana candy and dandelion. Alcohol is obvious, as is the abundance of hops and excess sugar. Ca’t really decide whether I like this or not; depends on the mood I guess.

pilsnerrogge (2817) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2010
Pours hazy pale brown with a large head. Aroma is bananas and cookie dough. Flavour is quite hoppy with some banana notes. Long bitter finish. As a beer it’s quite ok, but as a Bock it’s quite odd.

ekstedt (6516) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2010
Bottle (50 cl) from systembolaget. Shady orange amber, large off-white head. Clean bready and caramelly aroma, with some herbal hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Quite dry with medium bitterness. A very drinkable beer, lacking the malt depth that you expect from a really good bock.

jonas (6786) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle. Golden, fine carbonation, golden head. Fresh citruspeel and grapefruit aroma. Medium to light body, nice hoppyness on a slightly too light body. Lacks the substance and chewyness a Bock needs. Reatively quick exit with aromatic hops (chinook?) in the back of the throat.
