BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
500ml bottle in Hamburg on 11th Dec 2014. Poured a clear golden body with a white lasting head. Sweet, grainy and a corn like in the aroma and taste: too sweet for it’s own good really, and I have a sweet tooth.

Moravius (604) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2014
Flasche (50 cl) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Tiefes Orangegelb, klar; sahniger weißer Schaum. - Nase bocktypisch dicht malzsüß mit Karamel, etwas fruchtigem Hopfen im Hintergrund und leicht künstlichen, fruchtgummiartigen Noten. - Antrunk breit karamelmalzig mit leicht fruchtiger, honigartiger Süße, doch nicht zu süß. Sahnebonbons, leicht nussige Bittere, schwach krautig-herber Hopfen und ein Hauch von Anis. Mild rezent, angenehm sämiges Mundgefühl. Im Abgang leicht scharfer, grasiger und etwas pfeffriger Hopfen. Ausreichend bitterer, etwas schroffer Nachtrunk. - Ordentlicher, sehr süffiger heller Bock, mit schönem Malzkörper und nicht zu schwach gehopft.

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Schön dunkelorangene Farbe, angenehm süßlich-würziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist mild-süffig, angenehm süßlich und zum Hauptteil angenehm herb werdend. Zum Nachgeschmack hin ein Bisschen mussfig, aber angenehm. Bockbiertypische Süße mit ganz leichter Malznote. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine angenehm süßlich-würzige Note.
→ Leckerer heller Bock! 10+12+9+10

kappldav123 (5167) - GERMANY - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts strong-malty, modest spicy, some woody notes. Mild bitter background. Finish a bit more balanced, but still with some alcoholic notes. Okay.

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Bottle from the brewery. Dull orange-gold with a white head. Spinach / leafy green vegetable and turnip DMS foulness on top of a pale malt core. Stale yeast powder and makeup powder and hand soap notes set the mood. Medium body, sweet, mildly tangy / peppery. Thinner finish, candy apple cloying sugars in the finish.

Great flavor, great aroma. Overall this is a great tasting beer. The flavor has a bit of a smokey taste.

Dedollewaitor (14110) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 26, 2013
Bottle @ Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Bread, grain, whiff of alcohol, grass and caramel. Smooth and full bodied.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bronzed peach. Scattered off-white foam. Unappealing gummy candy aromas prevail over lesser notes of vanilla cake, pecan, and breadcrust. Unpleasant hint of grape taffy and medicine, as well. Firm carbonation. Somewhat fuzzy. Flimsy body. Initially sweet and semi-tacky with a sharp alcohol embrace. Honey-drizzled biscuits dovetail with a crisper nuttiness, though the malt soon relinquishes much of its sturdiness to a wet-paper and damp hay limpness. Some appetizing hop spice does exude, as does a splash of sweetish nectar, though the hoppy brightness is overly subdued and thus fails to counteract the sugars. Meanwhile, grape candy continually deposits its artificial-tasting residue on the palate. Finishes faintly cookielike with a lively aniseedy spiciness, though predominantly flabby with a wet paper lifelessness. Late emergence of flowery hop spice salvages the finish as it links up with a stiff Munich crackle, though the grapey-ness is here to stay. Sort of a mixed bag. On one hand, it does occasionally showcase some delightful crisp-edged malt refinement reminiscent of cookie, breadcrust, pecan, etc., yet on the other hand, there is a pervasive gummy candy quality and even a touch of banana that really wreak havoc on the overall luster. A few adjustments here and there and this would be pretty solid, but far from Franconia’s best.
