2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 6.5%. Rough and faintly flowery hop aroma. Clear dark golden colour. OK stable frothy white head. The flavour is of rough hops and a bit of caramel. A bit sweet and fairly clean. Resembles a decent mocne.

500 ml bottle from the Mix Market in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Pours clear gold color with a big fluffy white head. Weak grainy and alcohol aroma. Taste is light sweet and bitter metal, with a some hops. Palate is sharp and metal like. Seems soapy as well, Not good.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasting from Sep’ 2008.
Pours an oily looking deep gold that shimmers in the light. Nice, bold 2 inches of foam sets up atop, is well retained and leaves a sudsy lace. Soft aroma of wheatmeal, macerated, caramelised pears and apricots, and wooded honey. Bready, toasted sweet grain combo on the palate with added lemon and orange zest. Quite tangy, a little too sweet for balance. Plastic-like phenols plague the back end, a alcohol burn unwarranted of beer this strength destroys the swallow, joined by a cocktail of citric fruit esters. Oily, viscous body is not overly heavy, the initial burst of carbonation wanes so it becomes flaccid in feel. Just doesn’t work for me. I fear a hangover coming on after just one!!! (50cL, no date stamp, from a supplier to the Beer Store Morley)

Bottle @ meeting. Aroma is basicly a strong pilsener, nothing to do with a bock.
