A traditional bock-beer-speciality of Castle Eggenberg. This beer is brewed only seasonally and therefore available during Christmas and Easter holidays. Careful and slow fermentation and maturation make Festbock a desired beer not only in Austria but also in Italy, where it is exported in 30 lt. kegs.

Pours a clear yellow with small white head leaving behind a little lace. Aromas consist of sweet crisp pils malt, and alcohol. Flavours I’m getting are pale malt, light sweetness, booze, toast, very light hop presence.

Pours a clear golden color with a small white ring. Aroma of sweet grain, corn and booze. Taste is sweet malts and bread with a mild hoppy/alcohol taste. Average beer at best.

330ml brown bottle from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Gold colour, clear. Bright white head, small in size but creamy and tight bubbled. A few spots of lace, but pretty minimal. Nose is malty with a little sweetness. Taste has grains, a little bready sweetness, light grassy hops. A little sweetness in the finish, light grassy bitterness. Alcohol stays well hidden, drinks easily, pretty basic light coloured bock.

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Dec 16 CBAC. Now this is an effervescent beer! Supper bubbly maintains a nice restrained constant white head on gold. Pairs well with beef jerky. Very approachable drinkable higher ABV without being malt liquor. Light grain note and hint of alcohol.

CapFlu (4350) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
(0,33l bottle) 2012 Advent Calendar. Pours a thin, quick dissipating white head atop a clear yellow body. Nose of nail polish and grain. Bland flavour some corn also makes an appearance. Very milky on the palate and leaves a lasting lactic finish. Pretty lame. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPod

mcberko (5352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
330mL bottle, pours a clear light golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of honeyed corn malts, grainy notes and straw. Flavour is sweet, with notes of bready, grainy, corn malt, straw and a hint of hops. Very light-bodied and unassuming, with an inoffensive flavour profile.

JaKeAFC (451) - ITALY - NOV 8, 2012
33 cl bottle as Magalotti 1845 Doppio Malto, 7.1%. Dark yellow color, clear, unstable white head. Malts on the nose. Aroma has a nice amount of pale malts, very bready, sugar, candy orange, banana. Thin hop profile, alcohol can be noticed. Taste is initially sweet, then slightly bitter and finally sweet again. Tart mouthfeel, thick oily texture, dense, full bodied, soft carbonation. Finish is sticky and somewhat spiced. Heavy one, reminds me of some weizen-bocks.

330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and cereal grains. Taste is malty sweet with a grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Not a very good bock at all and not recommended.

Palme (2988) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2012
0.33l bottle. This is a crystal clear pale golden one with a medium sized light bubbly white head. It smells light sweet with some corn, also I get tones of fruity zesty melon and that’s just about that. Not extreme, not exciting, not bad either, just a bit dull. In the flavor this has some clear alcohol touches. Watery ans thin melon dominates, pale malty flavor and traces of corn and irony copper. No clear off flavors, but this is not one I will remember for a long time. 22.06.2012
