500 ml bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium white head. Fruity aroma, a bit spicy. Very spicy taste and palate.

crazyvin (1990) - New York, USA - JUL 16, 2014
A clear light golden body with a thin white head that had good retention, but no real lace. Aroma had mostly sweet esters and nice doughy notes to it. There was a slight corn presence to it. Flavor had a nice sweetness to it. Mild dough flavors, even milder corn flavors. Alcohol was present in the finish. Seemed a bit too sweet to me, in no way was it cloying, but it was sweet.

Erzengel (3543) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2014
Süßlich-würziger Geruch, goldgelbe Farbe. Der Antrunk ist leicht süßlich und etwas alkoholisch-scharf. Zum Hauptteil legt sich diese scharfe Note, es kommt eine milde Herbe hinzu, das Bier wird weniger süß, allerdings relativ aromenarm. Der Nachgeschmack mutet schon fast ein Bisschen wässrig an, die malzige Süße mit der Bockbierschwere wird erst wieder im hinteren Teil des Nachgeschmacks deutlich.
→ eher ein Durchschnittsbock! 8+10+7+8

nuplastikk (4697) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2014
500ml flip top bottle. Filtered dingy yellow-tan body, classic look for the style. A pretty solid example, lots fruity yeast tones, with mellow lagering notes, and a smooth quality golden malt backbone. Nice balancing noble hops in the aftertaste. Clean, well crafted, enjoyable beer.

thegreenrooster (3295) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Pour is a crystal clear yellow with a average white head. Aroma is sweet malt with some butterscotch. Flavor is a thick syrupy malt bit nothing after that. Finish is watery and nothing. I’d take any American take on this style over this.

Bamsen78 (3388) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 4, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of MiP. Pours clear golden with stable white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast. Sweetish, estery and malty flavour, with bitter notes of hops. Sweetish aftertaste. Distinctible alcohol presence, quite above the ABV stated on the label. Just average for the style.

Beerhunter111 (8256) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2014

jb (2297) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2014
mostly bread dough, grain, and flowery notes in the nose. Meh. Clear gold, flat and unappetizing looking with dotted lacing. Creamy mouthfeel, not much taste, a bit more dough. Really not a good bock.

uckelman (317) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Pours clear, golden yellow. Medium off-white head with small bubbles. Strong aroma of yeast, dough. Medium body, slightly sweet. Sticky finish, warming.

Decent helles bock, bit of an unfiltered look. Rich malts, mild hop bitterness, smooth.
