motelpogo (6453) - Plzen, - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle, at cafe abseits in bamberg, summer 2011. Very drinkable for a bock with an inviting golden colour and modest head, firm but smooth texture, grassy bitterness balancing some vanilla malt so it doesn’t finish too sticky. Plaudits

Moravius (441) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Goldgelb, klar, weißer Schaum - könnte glatt für ein Pilsener gehalten werden. - In der Nase Honig und Aprikosen vor hellem Malz. - Im Antrunk meldet sich erst nach kurzer, schwach fruchtiger Verzögerung eine breite Malzsüße mit Anklängen von Honig und Heu. Schwach rezent, leicht sämig. Im Abgang mild grasiger, schwach bitterer Hopfen mit Noten von Heu und Orangenschale. - Unerwartet guter Heller Bock, schön malzig aber nicht zu süß, dazu geschickt gehopft. Geht runter wie Öl.

Decent heller bock, not as sweet as most others. Still a bit uninteresting.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2010
(Draught at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 31 July 2010) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with bread, hay, grass and hints of tropical fruit. Malty taste with notes of bread, butter, grass, tropical fruit and a generous grassy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body with a solid malt sweetness throughout. Impressive malt character nicely balanced by the grassy bitterness. Brilliant maibock.
