Helles Bernstein, feiner Schaum. Fruchtig-apfeliges Aroma mit Honig. Vollmundiger Antrunk. Malzgeschmack mit getreidigen Noten, bittert angenehm nach. Nicht super-komplex, aber süffig.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One finger of head on an almost clear copper colored body.
The aroma is wet hay and barnyard with the slightest lemon. Bold.
The taste is a rich malty sweetness at first, then a lemon bitter with a quickly following candy sweet note.
Smooth texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
An enjoyable beer for sure.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a semi-clear copper color with a good amount of carbonation for a good head. Scent has some malts standing out giving it that obvious bock smell. The taste is mild with an almost nutty flavor to it. A very long lasting taste that is smooth and hits the taste buds just right. A great beer to go with a sandwitch.

Kinda bland, not tasting the helles and most taste the hops. Slight Carmel creamy flavor initially but over powered by bitterness in the end.

Bottle. Pours clear golden color with nice white head which unfortunately tears down rather quickly. Aroma is lots of malt with some hops. Flavor is malt and hops but unfortunately a bit empty for a bock. Only a hint of alcohol, which is surprising given its strength and emptier body.

A bit too sweet perhaps due to higher alcohol content, but delicious malt flavor and pleasant bitter crispiness.

Golden amber, thin head. Relatively light aroma - a little perfume if any. Rich malt builds well backed with a fair whack of earthy and tropical fruits hop bitterness. Nice beer and if from a name brewery would probably be rated quite differently.
