jamaty (1541) - 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.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2012
#1434 Dunkelgelb mit relativ wenig Schaum, der sich auch schnell verflüchtigt. Malzaromatisch pur im Aroma. Vollmundiger Antrunk. Im Geschmack süß, aber nicht klebrig. Wird im Verlauf zügig rezent und wird im Abgang angenehm herb. Süffig. Die Charakterfrage ist eine andere.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2013
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.

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.

500 ml. bottle. Golden colour, pours a minimal head that doesn’t hold. Smell of grains, floral and herbs. Medium to full body, sticky palate. Taste is very sweet, malt is everywhere, though some hops come by at times. Caramel, honey. Good.
