omhper (19237) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2007
Bottled at Café Abseits, Bamberg, Bavaria. Clody golden, dense creamy head. Buttery malt aroma. Sweet with soft, gentle well strcutured malt covered by grassy hops. Chewy and almost velvetty. salty finish. A superb malt character that lifts this beer. They know what they are doing at Zehendner!

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Herbal hops and light hay-like pils malts evolve in a dryish mouthfeel laced in alcohol warmth and balancing bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frothy head of foam stays atop the misty straw blond.
-I don’t understand why alcohol warmth needs to be present here.
-Flavor profile could be a tad more characterful to my tastes.
-I don’t understand the need to drink this one when you have access to their splendid Lagerbier. The latter has more flavour and more drinkability.
-The effervescent mouthfeel is very enjoyable.

On tap at Ma Che Siete, Roma.

Bottle (@ Café Abseits, BA): Hazy, golden, big stable white head, moderate hoppy and woody nose with a light yeasty background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied soft; lingering hoppy finish with a malty counterpart. Glorious franconian Bock.....

harrisoni (13286) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle kindly given to me by Gerhard at Café Abseits in Bamberg. Slightly hazy golden/orange with a lasting thick cream head. Looks really carbonated, I may have to decant this to get some of the gas out of it. Slightly perfumed aroma. Good light bock but with a definite alcohol punch. Some hop, I know it’s called a Maibock, but it does actually taste of May. Like May blossom. Really drinkable. Alcohol is hidden well. Yep really tasty.

hobsch (420) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle 0.5l. Pours almost clear yellow orange with white head. Aroma is geainy, malty, grassy with a spicy note. Taste is medium sweet and bitter with malt and hop flavour. Aftertaste has some bitterness with a spicy touch. Alcohol is well hidden, medium carbonation. Good Bock.

yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle. A clear one, except for microfloaties, golden in color and topped by a finger-thick white head. Quite hoppy on the nose, grassy and lightly peppery. Pine cone notes too. Full-bodied, nicely carbonated and slighlty warming. The flavor is bitter, with the maltyness subdued. Lasting bitter finish too. Certainly one of the best heller bocks I’ve had. 110819

downender (6164) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
On tap at Cafe Abseits, Bamberg, 4/5/2014. Slightly hazy and gold in colour, with a decent white head and a touch of carbonation. Sweetish, floral lager, with some crisp malts and well concealed alcohol. Pleasant.

pleasant and easy to drink bock bier, lovely malt hop structure with a hint of sweetness, hidden alcohol that creeps up slowely. nice.
