2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (thanks McTapps!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grainy, bready malts, some floral notes as well as mild herbs. Flavour is sweet malts, grains, alcohol, mild glue and some grass. Not very exciting flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, danke Günther.. Amber, low head and carbonation. Honeyish malt aroma. Fullbodied, heather-honey sweet base - tastes more of mead than many meads I tried, flowery and good grassy and herbal notes, enough hop bitterness to cut through, quite good balance actually, dry finish and quite drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50 cl bottle @ wPBF’14.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of pale malts, faint hops, some caramel and yeast. Flavor of pale malts, starch, some hay and fruity notes. Slick palate, sweetish finish. Doesn’t really hit the spot for me, a bit dull.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Biscuity and mildly bready caramel-malty aroma with a tinge of honey and flowery hops in the background. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a modest carbonation. Bready (cara-)malt-character with notes of biscuits and honey, accompanied by flowery and delicately herbal hops; sweet-bitter and balanced malty and mildly herbal hoppy finish with caramel and floral accents in the aftertaste. The alcohol is quite well muted. Nice pale Bock. 26.XI.13

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Bottle from McTapps, many thanks. Aroma is unusual and unpleasant. Bubble gum, alcohol, malt and some strange components. Flavor has also some strange notes of bubble gum, sweets and other artificial sweets. Maybe some faults?

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vom Bürgerbräu das bisher wohl beste. Optisch gülden mit einem leicht süßen Unterton und etwas Alkohol. Aromen von Vanille und etwas Karamell. Süffig und schwer. Ich wünschte mir, mit ihm käme der Frühling schon heute.
