3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

One of the hoppiest beers I found in Austria. Higher alcohol content, but quite drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden colour, small white head, soft carbo.
Clean aroma lead by honey and sugar underpainted by alcohol and hints of grassy hops.
Mouthfeel is slick, rather thin.
Finish is somewhat corny sweet, warming and short escorted by some hops again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bevuta come Magalotti Bock 1845, aspettavo qualcosa in più ma non arriviamo nemmeno a livelli bassissimi. Una birra dalle scarse qualità, dalla bevuta facile ma senza troppa "cattiveria" apporto di alcool deciso, scarso l’aroma e gli altri sapori. Avevo avvertito all’olfatto soltanto delle note di Mais, a dire il vero, ma niente di che.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
July 2010. Golden orange with a white head. Caramel and sweet aromas. Malty flavors with hops and caramel. Not my favorite.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle as "Birra Magalotti 1845". Bright golden pour with loose white head and scanty lace. Nose is honey sweet malts and faint spicy hops. Taste is similar to the nose with a medium body and carbonation. Rather too sweet for my taste but ok.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Advent Calendar #16. Golden, no head. A bit of ethanol to the nose and taste, otherwise what you’d expect from a heavy helles, I guess, with slight noble hops, pepper, and DMS. Yeast seemed clean. Finish wasn’t offensive, just a little bitter. My friend said it tasted like a heavy Budweiser.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from a friend. Smell of corn, honey and sugar. Similar taste with a boozy finish. Tasted like a regular industrial lager but with more ABV. Too thin to carry the flavours.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, Dec 16th Beer Advent Calendar. Medium golden, clear, with an average foamy white head. Sweet grainy aroma and palate, a little apple, a little metal. Forgettable.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden pour. Aroma is sweet, bready malts, hay, corn. Medium bodied, hight carbonation - quite crisp. Flavour is creamed corn malt. Alcohol is quite noticeable and finishes like a shitty whiskey.
