jamaty (1445) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Dorada mínimamente velada y con un par de dedos de espuma. Aroma malteado y fruto seco. Muy ligera en boca al principio, suave, muy suave. Y dulce, bastante dulce. Evoluciona a un final mucho más áspero, amargo. Almendra y cereal. Y alcohol presente. Bastante. Curiosa.

Vells (1092) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - MAY 14, 2015
Some malty background, light caramel, some fruitiness, low on grassy hops. Light sweetness with light bitterness. Drinkable, but not worthy of price

You can barely sense any aroma, the taste is sweet with mild caramel. Body is OK, not completely plain

bonkiedeaap (462) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer is yellow to golden colored and pours a fast dissapearing head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty, with tones of grains, a little spring flowers and further a lot of sugar sweetness. The taste is malty and light sweet and has a little watery taste which also a little alcoholic.. Further it is very chemical. The finish is light bitter and very chemical. Not enough character this beer, I’ve tasted better Heller Bock’s.

Clear amber, medium white head. Caramel and light roastiness on nose. Medium body, light roasty sweetness. Finishes watery and metal-y. Nothing special.

Baalzevuv (79) - POLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Barwa delikatnie bursztynowa, jasna, słomkowa. Piana mało obfita, nawet przy lekkim wymuszeniu, nietrwała. Gazu brak. Piwo bardzo klarowne. Aromat chlebowy, delikatnie kwaśny. W smaku jest rześkie, owocowe, orzeźwiające. Zupełnie nie spełnia stylu. Odczucie w ustach: pustka, jedna wielka pustka, aż huczy.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 500ml bottle served in a big weizen glass. A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a small bubbled white head which dissipates quickly leaving only few lacings. A thin layer remains for long time om the top S: Very malty. Sweet grains, honey, alcohol, flowery hops and Lager yeasts T: Pretty much like the nose: A simple bock. Slightly sweet upfront. Sweet malts, caramel malts, honey, white bread, earthy yeasts. Very light hops bitterness M: Medium and creamy body. Medium to low carbonation. Sweet malty aftertaste O: Medium drinkability. Compromised by its sweetness [ BA Review @ 7/14/2010 ]
