Formerly Ottakringer Bock.
Mit seinem individuellen, vollmundigen Charakter ist er ein einprägsames Geschmackserlebnis. Seine außergewöhnlich betonte Hopfung macht ihn so einzigartig – und schafft die perfekte Balance zum prägnanten Malzaroma. So macht er die Tage um Weihnachten und Ostern erst zu richtigen Festtagen! 17°

On tap at the Berliner Bierfestival. Clear golden serving, with a small, white head. Sweet and malty nose with a little fruityness. The same goes for the flavor, but there’s a weak note of alcohol and some hops as well. Medium to full and a bit sticky mouthfeel. Quite nice, at least it was a welcomed change from all the pilsners.

(Bottle BB 01/09/07) Hoppy, malty aroma with a hint of alcohol. Golden colour, clear and small, white head with fair lacing. Sweet, malty, slightly fruity, acidic and slightly grassy-hoppy flavour. Slightly alcoholic, softly carbonated and medium-bodied palate. Basic bock – nothing special! 17/05/07

Bottle. Clear dark golden colour, no head. Malty flavour, a little bonbon. A bit boring for bock, not very flavourful.

0.5l bottle courtesy of ozujsko (thanks!). A fancy looking bottle and label with a fancy looking cap. Hmm. Poured a honey-like golden colour with a big thick head that went away at a medium pace leaving tons of lacing. The nose was "deep malt", dust and some alcohol. Sweet taste, but not really pleasant. Some very good malt, but that’s overshadowed by the nasty interplay of hops and alcohol that tastes like something that would come out if some inept schnapps maker decided to make a hops schnapps. A low, persistent alcoholly bitterness that gets revolting too soon. Alcohol in the aftertaste. It seems that either they have problems with consistency or that this is a true love/hate beer. My first bock.... pity. I really wanted to like it.

Bottled, pasteurised at the Sorento Restaurant, Vienna. Pale golden short head. Pale crisp malts donminate with a smooth vanilla like finish, some fruit and a pleasing closing hoppiness.

Bottled. Pale golden, clear, large head. Aroma of malt and alcohol. Sweet with soft, rich maltiness and salty finish. A solid and well balanced bock.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2004 Bottled: (Old rating 5/4/3/2/7)
Intensiv malty and alcoholic aroma. Golden color, fine creamy head. Taste has a light fruity complex maltiness. Finish is salty and quite bitter. For me all in all still a hint to bitter.
