Bottle brought home from October trip to Franconia. Wonder blond bock.
Super clean lager with very nice malt undertones and long lagering. Crisp with just enough alcohol to let you know you’re drinking a bock. Inspired effort from good out of the way brewery.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle. Delicatly cloudy piss like yellow with small head but good lacing. The beer has a weak aroma overall. Mostly grainy with mineral and yeasty notes. A bit of sugar, sweet cheese, banana and some delicate orange. Taste is medium sweet like bread with banana, a bit dry like hay and delicate bitter finish. Nothing exciting there.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought @ Landbierparadies. Pours tiny hazy deep golden with a tiny frothy white head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and floral with crackers, white bread, caramel, hay, honey, minerals and lemon peal. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, malty and floral. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny syrupy, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with fresh bready malts and plenty of floral honey. Love the floral honey character.
