omhper (23428) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2015
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Lightly hazy deep golden. Fruity grassy nose. Mid sweet with medium-full body and soft, firm mouthfeel. Nice deep malt character. Fruity with some grass, honey and butter. Lightly warming mid bitter finish.

Moravius (1124) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 17, 2015
Flasche (33 cl), erstanden im HopfenBierGut, Spalt (14.4.2015). - Tiefes Goldgelb, klar; reinweißer feinporiger Schaum wie bei einem Pils. - In der Nase leichter Honig, etwas Karamel und der kräftig-würzige Spalter Hopfen. - Antrunk angenehm rund und kräftig malzsüß aber nicht dick; schöne Karamelnote. Mild rezent, vollmundig. Im Abgang geht die Malzsüße harmonisch in kräftige hopfenwürzig-krautige Hopfenaromen über, die sich nur langsam aus der honigsüßen Umrahmung herausschälen. Deutlich hopfenbitterer Nachtrunk. - Gut malziger, aber auch nicht zu knapp gehopfter heller Bock, wie von einem Bier aus der Heimat des Spalter Hopfens zu erwarten. Voll in Ordnung, vielleicht eine Spur zu brav.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 1, 2015
Bottled (from BierZwerg). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is alcohol sweetness, some grains, mild fruity notes as well as some slight rather bulky uncleanliness. Flavour is fruity, some alcohol sweetness, mild grass and some sweet malts. Quite aggresssive alcohol as it warms up a bit.

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle 330ml (BZ, BB 06/2015)
Clear deep golden color, mostly vanishing white head. Aroma is alcoholic and malty. Medium-bodied. Sweetish malty, almost honeyish with light grainy notes and alcohol. Not very sophisticated strong bock but at least has maltyness with its alcohol.

Koelschtrinker (17288) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 1, 2013
Wenig hopfiger, malzig süßlicher Antrunk. Die milde Süße bleibt vorhanden und damit auf noch angenehmem Niveau. Zum Mittelteil würziger, deutlich hopfiger, frisch. Klebrig hopfiger Abgang, dunkel herb, dezenter Alkohol. 9/9/8/9/8/9

Idiosynkrasie (6404) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy aroma with a strawy touch, some caramel, a honey touch. Taste is minimally sweet malty, slightly strawy, intense, almost biting, bitter hoppy overtones. Intense hop makes this a very drinkable Bock.

BeerViking (4141) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 33cl bottle, thanks to Erlangernick, golden with a lacing head, malty peppery nose, dry and crisp, almost acrid bitter edge, more like a strong dry Pilsner than a Hellerbock. Faint floral notes, a herbal finish, and some warming alcohol, otherwise no great depth or complexity. Re-rate: now 6 months past its best-before, a bit of age seems to have smoothed things out nicely - the herbal edge is still there, but it’s more honeyed overall and the bitterness is more balanced. Nice stuff.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, golden colour with a mid-sized foamy white head. Mildly biscuity malty aroma with a tinge of honey and grassy hops in the background. Mildly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly strawy and delicately biscuity (cara-)malt character with delicately grassy hoppy accents; almost dry-ish mildly sweet and bitter hoppy finish. 27.VII.13
