2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
@ Vino Belissimo / Lima OH --- Clear medium amber with a solid head cover, sprays of lace that drop back into the drink. Taste is straight-up caramel malt at the onset. It grows nicely to a lightly hopped, carbonated palate before showing dark dried fruit in the finish. This starts very well for the style, but ends on an odd note. Good, not great.

Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, full sized creamy white head that lasts for quite some time. Smell and taste malts, light to moderately bitter, lightly herbs. Average body and carbonation. Decent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Goldgelb. - In der Nase Bittermandel, herbe Frucht. - Im Antrunk enorm herb-fruchtig, stark hopfenbitter. Der Bockbiercharakter zeigt sich in fruchtiger Süße und zarter Honignote im Malz, aber ohne jede Dicke oder Fuseligkeit. Mild rezent. Wuchtig trockener, hopfenbitterer und zugleich weicher Abgang; langer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Großartiger heller Bock, der beste, den ich kenne.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahrs Bräu Bock-Bier has a very thick, frothy, over-flowing, white head, a mostly clear, very bubbly, golden appearance, with noticeable sediment roiling about, and a bit of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is sharp, sweet, and grassy, with rich bread and subdued hop oil. Taste is of the same, with a noted alcohol presence, not unlike King Cobra Premium Malt Liquor. Mouthfeel is medium, and Mahrs Bräu Bock-Bier finishes dry, easy going, and good. A beer that everyone should try! RJT

From bottle. German yeast on nose. Some candy notes as well. Taste is caramel, spice, and some biscuit makes. Drinks smooth.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drought. Light amber with whitish creamy head, no specific aroma, low carbonation, thin body, sugary-caramel taste mixed with a spicy flavor, medium finish ending with a bit of bitterness. Not a great brew, too sugary for my taste.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl, bb 04/2014. Immediate alcohol and starch in the nose, the mind boggles why an age-old traditional brewery who does prime normal beers would want this in their beer. Some fruitiness ensues as it warms. Flavour is the same, amped grains and confused sour mash, palate sticky and cardboard. Another fuming case against bottom fermenting anything over 6%. First heavy letdown from Mahrs.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml Bottle: BBD 21 Apr 14, poured into a Hannen Alt tumbler (three times) at home on 23 Feb 14. Brought back from Berlin to drink at leisure.
Golden and bright body, clear and clean looking: good snow white foaming head that hangs around for a while.
Light malty nose with a bready like hint.
The taste was also malt led, again with a bread yeastiness: nothing exciting or bold, but a good solid light coloured Bock with enough alcohol and flavour to keep me interested.
Better than average and worth finding: dirt cheap in Germany too.

Bottle shared by my brother. Clear gold in color with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt and some caramel. Sweet malt flavor with bread and corn accents before a caramelly sweet finish.
