Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing!
Pours clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of grains, pale malt, mild fruits. Taste of sweet malt, grains, mild hops, boring!

58cl crown-top bottle. Grainy nose. The beer starts malty with grainy hints. Not too complex but easy to drink. The grainy aroma remains, hints of sweetness, not much bitterness. Round and smooth. Sweetish-grainy in the aftertaste.

Golden blonde veiled, average but fugacious white foam, low carbonation. Smells of malt, softness, cereals, sour cream. The taste is sweet, round, malt, sugar-toffy, hints of hay, lemon and vanilla. Creamy and soft finale, beer easy to drink, a little passkey.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2007
Very trasparant pale-golden blond beer with a fast disappearing white head. Aroma is malty and it has touches of dry corn, sweet unbaked dough and some smooth caramel. The taste is a bit on the watery side, it has a thin sweetness and the overall taste is a bit bland. When served cold, it can be a easy drinking thin-sweet malty beer.

Thx to Joris. Pours a yellow gold blond beer with a nice head, quickly dissapearing though. Presence of malts and leafs in the nose. Taste is sweet, slight malty, some alcohol and notes of leafs. While warming up some notes of almonds in the aftertaste. I must say I am not very familar with Bock’s. This is my second experience but did not convince me, rather boring.

Yellow golden beer, well carbonated with a thick-set yellowish head. Faint and delicate greenery nose initially, then dry, crude warm grain. Sweet, grainy, bready flavours. Part of the sweetness is unmistakably alcohol. Ends leafy. Retronasal grain and faintly almondy. Light bodied. But the presence of the alcohol is such - at only 5.4% - that there can’t be much else. Quite light for a Bock, not very interesting - apart from its rareness.

clear pale golden colour, few head, malt and alcohol in the nose, sweet, oily, alcohol finish - very modest
