3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Copper pour with average white head. Aroma has some spicy notes and some hops as well, bready. Taste is malty overall with dark spiced breads. Palate is medium, with a fairly creamy texture and moderate carbonation, aftertaste is slightly bitter. Pretty darn awesome beer, I think it’s once of the best "Spring Seasonals" I’ve had!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours wonderful into the glass, clear amber brown, promising a malty tasteful Bockbier. Aroma caramel, roasty, hops with a hint of grass. The taste is medium sweet with a delightful bitterness, maybe slightly sour. Medium body, creamy texture and a lively carbonation with a bitter but short finish. A rather light Bock, despite the 7,2%, but I think a Maibock is always fresher than a Xmas Bock.
I tasted the beer later with a sharp cheese, this brought out some rather nice roasty aromas and made up a nice combination.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, with sweetish notes of malt and yeast and a hint of butter. Sweetish, malty flavour, with hints of caramel, and with regulary hoppy notes. Perceptible alcohol bitterness. Bittersweet aftertaste. Not bad for its style but nothing I would drink for pleasure.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Moderate bread with a light caramel glaze; a touch of toast; spicy hops are more present than expected. Appearance: Nearly still amber pour with a firm off white head that settles into a ring. Flavor: Very malty all around with dark spiced bread culminating into what seems like some nuttiness toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, very soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: If you can find a fresh bottle, and love German beer, this one is a must. Delightful.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance : Copperish color with aggressive carbonization. Big off white foam which last forever. Great lacing on glass.
Aroma: Sweet in the nose. Metallic aroma.
Taste: Little bit over carbonated. Slight sweet and caramel. Good balance between malt and bitterness.
I expected to be fuller beer but overall it’s not bad. Nice malty beer but nothing special.
