lucien (42) - ARGENTINA - MAY 10, 2007
Bottle. Clear dark brown with medium beige head. Low and empty aroma, flavor too sweet for a bock. Light body and watery. It´s like a pale lager in taste but coloured.

yngwie (15606) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2007
Can. Clear, copper with beige head. Malt, caramel, sweetness and a tad spice aroma. The flavor has a malty sweetness and some hops. Medium body and a sweet and malty finish. A decent bock, but a bit anonymous. (070427)

William (202) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2007
Unlike the lager, this beer is definitely very drinkable. Nice body, caramel, and even though not like most of the bock beers I drink in Europe, it is very refreshing.

omhper (21756) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown, minimal beige head. Dominated by crystalized sugar. Medium bodied with clean mouthfeel. No finer nuances, but there are notes of coffee and caramel. Very low bitterness. Tolerable.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 6, 2006
Big bottle (there are so many big bottles in Argentina!). Dark amber colour. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, some hoppiness. Bit sweet flavour of caramel and toasted malts, some alcohol, with a sweet bit bitter finish. An ok brew.

ghawener (1533) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - NOV 26, 2006
Bottle: Quite flat and boring for a ´bock´ beer, very close to it’s brother brew. Watery, plain, boring. Heineken do something here, you’re dying!

Lilith (242) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 24, 2006
CAN Chestnut colored beer with a frothy tiny off-white head. Awful aroma of grains, cooked vegetables, metal odor from the can and a totally unpleasant alcoholic hint. Very soft flavor. Light bodied, watery texture a bit of bitterness in the finish. Horrible.

Lubiere (11373) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2006
Dark brown ale with a thin big bubbled off white head. Light caramel malt aroma, light hops, a bit artificial. In mouth, a nutty malt with light hops, light bodied, some lingering metallic notes. Some chocolate appears as it warms up. Not as bad as cristal.

Panzerfaust (655) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 17, 2006
Can 354 ml: Pours an opaque red/brown color with a small, fully diminishing beige head that leaves a small lacing. Weird aroma. What the hell is this?! The only malty smell I found was a little of caramel (probably artificially added). There are notes of metal from the can and some herbs and grapefruit from the hops. I found also some hints of sour milk. How could this be a Bock?. Flavor is soft, sweet but with a hoppy trace always present. It gives this beer a very un-bock taste. There’s a bit of orange, bitter chocolate and Coca Cola. Where is the malty character?. Dissapointing would be an overstatement. Light body and watery texture, this is definitely a dark lager. A bad one. Alcohol is well-hidden at least. Finish is short and nothing special. Lagerish aftertaste. Bad. Another one brought by my mother from Mendoza, Argentina.
