3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: This one pours a clear, rich amber color with two fingers of off-white head and very nice lacing.
S: I’m not all that big of a fan of the nose on this. It’s very malty, with a lot of caramel, and it seems to be incredibly spicy. I’m okay with some mild spice in a beer, but this one is a bit too much.
T: The taste is better than the nose, that’s for certain. The caramel and malt is quite up front, with the spices much more subdued.
M: The fizziness is rather light for a lager and it’s rather full bodied as well. I haven’t had this beer in quite some time and I found this to be quite impressive.
D: This is a pretty easy drinking beer and one that you could easily have several of in a session. I’m not the biggest fan of bocks, but I found this one to be fairly enjoyable and wouldn’t turn it down if offered one.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of malt, spice and hop?. Deep coppery red color with virtually no head. Starts with lightly spiced malt, continuing with that, finishing with a somewhat flat malt character. Maybe that aroma was not hop. It went really well with milk chocolate coated oat cakes (McVitties).

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber with a small off-white head. Weak malty aroma completely covered in christmas cookie and pumpkin pie spice - certainly not my thing. Dry and malty flavour with the spices playing a more balanced part.
