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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl swing top bottle, from the Trinkgut in Lippstadt, pours with a clear gold body that supports a thin white head. The modest aroma offers up sugary sweetness, pears, sweet ripe green apples and a faint floral hoppiness. The taste is Malt Liquor like with light skinned sugary sweet fruity esters and some chemical booze. I do get a slight redeeming maltiness around midway. Overall sweet fruity esters run the show here.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep golden colour with low ehad and smooth body. Taste of low malt, mild hops, strong alcohol and raisin bread. Very smooth and easy to drink, but also quite sweet and heavy, just a typical Bock. This one is definately not the worst I ever drank.
