omhper (19950) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2005
Draught at Hagges Bärsklubb, Nynäshamn, Sweden. Golden colour, small head. Buttery malt aroma. Dry with deep, firm gemtle maltiness. Grassy and strikingly hoppy with lingering very bitter finish. An excellent bock!

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2014 Bottle at the brewery, shared by Stefan Zehendner. Pale gold,effervescent with a still white head.
Nutty, toasty, musty aroma with strong minerals. Nose is spicier than the maibock, seedy/ toasty, more malty as well... just as mineral-heavy as his other beers. Superb cleanliness. Honey / mineral finish. Medium-full body. Hard mineral water + carbonic acidity + rich melanoidin fullness in the mouth. Faint oxidation doesn’t spoil the fun. (3.7)

November 2014 from the maturation tanks at 8 weeks: stellar, soft and velvety, perfectly clean, very expressive. Winner icky sticky rich melanoidin bomb Heller Bock. (4.2)

Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 10, 2009
hazy blond coloured with a firm and quite long lasting off-white foam; malty aroma with aromatic notes of oranges, herbs and a touch of alcohol; full-bodied, strong and bitter/sweet; some residual sugars in a long malty and fruity (oranges again) aftertaste; long warming alcohol touch - a beautiful, very balanced bock

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
Draught, Abseits. Gloriously unfiltered tan with a massive head. Fresh, herbal and bready, and a fair bit yeasty - a nice, complex aroma. Big fresh malts with lots of yeast and a faint spicy hop character. Excellent bock.

Black Country Beano. Outbound train tasting! Light haze on this gold beer, little pale cream coloured head. Light airy palate, semi dry. Sweet malt with a nice touch of the German nuttyness. Light floral note. Malt cream. Mild sweet dried fruits. Finishes soft and airy. Delicious. One of those German beers that just grabs you and say ’listen matey - I’m a good beer okay!?’.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Draft @ Cafe Abseits. Hazy yeasty honey, like natural honey color with stable head. Fun and healthy yeast aroma is fruity and floral, a fun bouquet. Nice thick palate is slightly granular. Well-spiced with delightful hop finish. Why can’t more pale bocks be so nicely hopped like this?

Sixth train beer of RB Black Country Beer Bus Bash; hazy golden pour white head, fruity aroma, a bit wheaty a bit meh, I’m not great at describing German beers, but this one was good.
