Saeglopur (1579) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 1, 2016
330 ml bottle from BeerLovers Wien, bb 28.10.16
Golden, clear body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of honey, flowers, grains, grass, some bread, some sweet ripe fruits, some citrus.
Tastes of flowers, grass, grains, citrus, honey, spices, some herbs, some sweet fruits, some alcohol.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with an average cabonation.
Finishes alcohol warming, bitter, quite dry, hoppy, floral, spicy, grassy, a bit sweet.

Good, but not so special. A bit hoppier than usual for this style, with nice floral notes and a bitter finish. Still quite simple overall, while well balanced. Not among my favourite Hofstettner bock beers.

armando629 (2455) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 13, 2010
0,33 l bottle, Sörspecialista.hu, Budapest
Honey yellow color with a minimal lacing white head. Malt, honey, some caramel and vanilla, yeast and grassy hop in the moderated aroma. Lively carbonation with bready malt, sweet tones of caramel and honey, a grassy-herbal bit of hop on the tongue. Dry aftertaste. I missed something particularity. The beer goes only for the high abv(?)

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 3, 2010
Sörspecialista, Budapest Világos aranyszínű és tükrösen tiszta, viszont habja szinte semmi sem keletkezik a kitöltéskor. Ami mégis van, az vékony és gyorsan elillan. Illata igen malátás, kissé alkoholos, édeskés és van benne egy kis szúrósság, mint egy erősebb pilsben. Íze kissé gyümölcsös, likőrös, kissé csípős, a sok maláta is érződik rajta. Kicsit csípős és olyan, mintha egy kevés friss, kútvízzel lenne meglöttyintve és ahogy melegszik, előbújik egy adag komló is. Érdekes, hogy kissé vizesnek tűnik és enyhén szénsavas, az alkohol tartalom pedig jól kiérződik. Utóíze száraz és gyógyfüvesen keserű. Az egésznek van egy olyan kissé zöld, éretlen összhatása. Érdekes...

Draft at the brickstore pub. Pour is a light yellow with a bit of a wispy white head. Aroma is toasty grain, wheat, and honey. Flavor is a burst of honey with a bit of citrus fruit on the back of the palate. Full bodied and a very hefty drink.
