MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed malt biscuits whip up a cuddly body before mild herbal bitterness and more cereal character seal the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam sits atop the sparkling golden.
-Drinkability is high.
-Flavor clarity is excellent.
-Another refined product from Zur Sonne!

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2017 Bottle at bottle share Bad Staffelstein. Clear gold colour lasting white head. ok aroma. Some decent hop. A little sugary. Like a strong lager. Abb shows through. But a clean heller bock. Great hops on the finish. Quite bitter.

Bottle @ Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. Pours golden with a creamy stable white head. Fresh baked bread, straw, grass, baguette and a Whisper of alcohol. Quality malty. Full bodied. Bitter finish. Very Nice!

Erzengel (8723) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2015
Many thanks to kevnic2008 for this bottle. The beer is malty-sweetish. Not too sweet but fresh with hints of caramel. Slightly bitter in the aftertaste. Nice sweetish-malty. Fresh, hints of grain, caramel malt. Nice round brew.

Koelschtrinker (20395) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 15, 2015
Heller, herb malziger Antrunk. Dabei ist der Alkoholgehalt erkennbar aber nicht störend. Im Mittelteil herber, weiter hell malzig, würzig, rund. Spritzig. 11/10/11/10/8/10

kevnic2008 (11996) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Golden color with medium white head. Aroma of grain, malty. Bittersweet taste. Bittersweet finish.

Jonb5 (550) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2012
Pale colour, hazy with a medium head. Hoppy grassy smell. Bittersweet taste with strong hints of hops and notes of flowers. Nice mouthfull, not too boozy. Overall nice subtle balanced hoppy Bock.

Ernest (7694) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Rated at the brewery/restaurant Nov 2011. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, husks, bread), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of paint, concrete, bubble gum. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Among the worst brews I had in the Bamberg region on this trip. Really clunky with a poor aftertaste. Very sad, just because I expect this place can do better.

Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Pale with a thick head. The aroma is somewhat bready. Firm and dry with some vaguely doughy pale malt character. Good bock.
