3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled@AIH40 (from Bier Zwerg). Yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, some slight fresh herbal notes along with a nice bready maltiness to it. Flavour is nice floral, herbal and grassy mix with the bready malts and some earthy notes kicking in at a later point. After the malts kick in it takes a while and the bitterness does kick in as well, leaving a nice long bitter taste in the mouth.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle, about 1 year old.
Clear, golden body, with a medium, creamy, white head,
Aroma of flowers, citrus, grass, honey, candy, some bread, some alcohol.
Taste is about the same, with more bready notes.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes alcoholic, bitter-sweet, a bit fruity, with some herbs.
Nice one. Not that different to other beers of style, except some citric fruits. Maybe the Saphir hops faded a bit too much after a year. But overall still a nice, well balanced example of this style, with a slightly stronger alcohol presence.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle at Il Maltese. Rich golden yellow, pretty clear, with a small, frothy and not too persistent bright white head. On the nose pale/bready malts, some burnt caramel and slightly toasted malts, peaches and apricots, a hint of white grapes and some alchool presence. Extremely sweet, even cloying I’d say. Very sirupy and quite dry, pretty much only malt forward. A little yeast influence too. Unpleasent dusty and almost rubbery aftertaste. Soft to average carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Bad bottle, or just not for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Malty first and foremost but the lemon tea and apricot notes from the hops are more than welcome. Tastewise it suffers from that common pale bock deficiency - it is alcoholic astringent. They poured in also generous amounts of hops to create an underlined bitterness so that not all is lost. But I still feel lowering the ABV by two points would do the beer really good.

Bottle from Craft Beer Store Hamburg, straw coloured with a fast-settling head, nose is corn and herby hops, acrid-bitter and vegetal over a sweetish body. A little too dry and acrid for my taste.
