kappldav123 (5339) - GERMANY - JUN 2, 2013
Thanks to quack-duck for that bottle. Looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass very zippy, nice head. Starts strong, fine malty, modest dry. Modest bitter background. Spicy-malty finish. Quite drinkable. Good bock!

pivnizub (9163) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 20, 2013
Bottle( kindly excavated by Stefan!) : Golden, quite clear, medium-sized and stable white creamy head, honeyish and strawy nose; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and pretty soft; well hidden alcohol in the drier hoppy and pale-malty finish. Nice, well balanced Bock…

EithCubes (5194) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Bottle, best before 09.2011. Nose is very grassy, light malt sweetness and grain. Pours clear golden with a quickly-vanished head. Looks like apple juice. Taste is surprisingly dry, has some slick Champagne notes in with yeast and malt. Just the fainest hint of fruit, leaning toward apple. Crispness that lingers along with characteristic lager notes (i.e., stale air that has been smoothed over). Aftertaste is dry and chalky. Full-bodied and carries a certain sledge-hammer attitude along with its humbler industrial origins. Not a bock for me to repeat, but as a wise man often said, "It’ll getcha drunk!" From 31 May 2011.

Koelschtrinker (12031) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 4, 2011
Ein leckererer, leicht fruchtiger Geruch strömt einem entgegen. Der Spruch dieses Bieres lautet: ,, Festlicher Biergenuss für den Kenner". Ob dieses Bier dem Spruch gerecht wird? Nun, ein gutes Bier ist es allemal. Hatte ich von einem Zipfer auch kaum anders erwartet. Der Geschmack startet frischn und bleibt bis in den Mittelteil schön herb. Im Nachgeschmack dann der Bockbiertypische Geschmack, eine leicht süßliche Note kommt auch dazu. Den Alkoholgehalt kann man höchstens im Nachgeschmack erahnen, ansonsten ist er geschickt verdeckt. Das einzige, was mir an diesem Bier nciht ganz gefällt, ist der Nachgeschmack, das liegt aber wahrscheinlich daran, dass ich kein Bockbiertyp bin. Durch den Nachgeschmack wird meineserachtens auch die Süffigkeit eingeschränkt. Trotzdem ein doch feines Bier! Test vom 14.4.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,12,8,9,11,10
