AirForceHops (3513) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 26, 2013
6 oz. pour @ the brew pub. Unclear gold color no head. Simple brew with aromas and flavor being identical. Lots of sweet pale malt. Floral hops add a light bitterness. Finish is clean. Texture was a bit watery. Taste is a bit on the bland side. This was my least favorite. However, I did ask for it. But no real problem to speak of.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2011
In short: A boring fruity, floral and overly sweet/sugary golden lager. Meh.
How: Tap at brewpub. Beer was called “Holis Bock” and was 6.1%. I’m assuming it is just a variation on the beer
The look: Almost clear golden body topped by a very small beige head
In long: Pleasant nose of dry countryside flowers and sweet light color fruits. Taste takes a bit of a nose dive. Very sweet (too sweet) and fruity with sweetened pears, sweetened peaches and flower petals. The floral/flowery hops just don’t balance the beer out. White sugar sensation. No bitterness or dryness. I didn’t think this beer was very good at all. I’m not saying I could do better, because honestly I don’t have the talent to brew a good beer. In fact the only natural talent I have is acting in infomercials as one of those people who have immense difficulties performing everyday ordinary tasks.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 8, 2007
Growler, as Maibock 7.1%, Mondial
Hazy amber gold, bright white head on top.
Aroma: Fruity, slightly sour notes above. Light malty touches. Not as clan it could be 6-
Clean, fairly smooth bodied, medium full body. Malty – fruity personality. Soft and silky but it slightly sour notes made this Bock slightly unclean feel.

(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub in Burlington, VT. Pours a creamy, thin white head with a clear golden body. Nose is lactic. Smooth flavour with mild hops and yeast. Finish is very smooth with a bitter hoppy finish. Very good!

Draught pint at the brewpub; this was listed as "Helles Bock" at the VT Brewers’ Fest and "Summer Bock" at ther restaurant. Very light blonde with a hint of haze, smallish decaying head....flowery, caramel/honey aroma, hints of light smoke, enticing....body lightly perfumy, very sweet, full-bodied and fairly quaffable at least until too-strong alcohol notes set in. Bit sticky at midpalate and after.
