Unser helles Bockbier ist ein echter Muntermacher, der die Lebensfreude weckt. Sein vollwürziger Geschmack macht ihn beliebt und begehrt.

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 (95) - 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 ]

Bügelverschlußflasche: Golden to deep golden, mid-sized stable White head; bready-molassy nose, some medical hops are floating around in the backyard; light to moderate bitter (!) and sweet flavour, almost medium bodied; thinner and shorter pale-malty and herbal finish. Pretty mediocre...

MoritzF (9015) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2014
(swing top bottle) Slightly unclear, golden colour with a short and blond foamy head. Slightly sugary bready malt aroma with subtle fruity and shy hoppy notes. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Bready malt character with traces of caramel, subtle fruity notes, as well as slightly flowery and herbal hops; sweet and slightly sticky malty finish. Likeable but lacks character. 17.V.14
