Bottle in November 2011. Clear gold body with a firm, short white head. Prickly, fizzy, peppery and acidic with a lot of mineral character and a mildly-resinous / oily / sticky melanoidin malt sweetness. Sweet with medium to low bitterness and low hop flavor. Well-made, crisp, clean.

Koelschtrinker (11154) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Milder Antrunk, die würzige Note ist wirklich unendlich mild und erinnert anfänglich in keinster Weise an einen Bock. Auch im Mittelteil lässt sich die Sorte nicht erkennen, die Würze hat sich nur wenig verstärkt und hat auch noch Konkurenz von einem süßen und klebrigen Ton bekommen, der später etwas bitter wird und eigentlich der kräftigste ist. Im Abgang ist dieses Aroma ebenfalls führen, hintergründig leichte Bockbiertöne. Entäuschend. Ich habe keine Ahnung mit wem ich dieses Bier getauscht habe, trotzdem danke hierfür. Test vom 7.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,7,10,8,11,7 - 8,30

Oakes (12849) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2011
Bottle. Golden. Smells like a bock, with pale malts and some light alcohol-tinged fruitiness. Has a light fruitiness and more alcohol than many other bocks of the region.

Miksu (4982) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2011
0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Golden to copper color. Sweet malty, toffeish and honeyish aroma with sulfur. Malt, bready and honeyish flavor with dryer fruity-herbal finish .Nice mellow brew with enough deepness.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle. Bright orange, rather honey color actually. And the aroma too, is so sweet it smells honeyed in a simplistic way. Not a bad smell, just rather sweet, fruity, almost meadlike but certainly signalling bock. There is a slight bit of paper in the aroma. Body is smooth throughout, and quite clean although flavors linger long. The malt character is solid, it’s fruity and fresh tasting. Although it’s not a hoppy bock, it finishes dry and crisp so it’s balanced. Doesn’t seem hot but does feel heavy as a bock. Overall I’m finding this one quite nice.

Papsoe (25079) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of MoritzF. Clear golden with a white head. Very solid malty aroma with a floral hoppiness. Solid body with a gigantic malt base and again floral touches. Rather bitter finish. 220308

MaxxDaddy (410) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2008
Papsoe’s tasting. Pours gold with white head. Aroma of biscuity malts mainly. Taste is similar with not much else going on, unfortunately. Average mouthfeel and light maltiness on the finish. Wouldn’t have guessed an ABV that high though.
