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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of honey, cereal/grain, apple, yeast, and faint straw notes. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze. It has a large creamy white head that has very good retention. There is a lot of soapy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a honey and a touch of apple. The finish has light-moderate straw with some faint cereal notes and a hint of spice. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

Skunky hay nose, mint and lemon zest also present. Milky yellow, slight greenish hue, thick head. Medium body, mint and lemon, grass. Alcohol slightly noticeable. A bock with flavor and character, not necessarily my favorite hop bill, but enjoyable.
