Many thanks to erzengel for the bottle! Pours a golden color with a bit of haze and an off-white cap. The smell is bread & caramel. The taste is as it smells ending dry and a bit fruity. Light/medium in body with fine carbonation.

Bottle. Pours in hazy pale body with low white head. Aroma is malty, light grainy, noble character. Taste has crisp malty sweetness, earthy to noble medium bitterness, well balanced. Refreshing. Body is full, high carbonation. Really nice heller bock.

Cloudy yellow ochre with no head. Sweet aroma has fermented fruits, alcohol, yeast, raisisins. Light feel with no carbonation, sweet, same elements as aroma. Lacks nuances and body. Feels bit diluted.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden colour with a thick white head. Nose is "Heller Bock" typical. The beer starts typical sweet, probably too sweet with hints of honey. The mainpart is typical for the style, but I don’t like this immense sweetness that lies over everything. Only very slightly bitter till the end. Highly drinkable and very very smooth!
--> A great session Bock (if someone does this), but no beer for me! --> 7/13/8/7

Ein netter Bock mit klassischen Bockaromen. Mild in der Süße mit etwas Heu und Gras. Malzig um Abgang mit einigen schweren Momenten. Nicht schlecht.

Bottle from Pivnizub - many thanks! The Bock pours out in a clear golden-amber colour with low steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of mild hops and flowers. Taste of ripe but mild hops, straw, mountain flowers, malt and caramel. Light spicy but fresh hints. Really nice one - easy and quaffable to drink.
