En god bock, der har en lidt mere krydret smag end normalt en bock har, men fin sødme.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 500ml. Amber with a white head sinking quickly with no lacing. Aroma is malty and so is the taste which is also somewhat on the sweet side. Not so much more really, a bit thin. For a winter beer, I would like to see it more full-bodied.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, courtesy of MoritzF, many thanks! Rather pale amber-orange color with hardly any head that is immediately gone. Aroma is bubble gum and a sweet maltiness. Taste is malts, bubblegum and caramel, a bit of wet cellar. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Drinkable and alright, but barely. Not as bad as one would expect from Oettinger.

For a winter beer, I think that the taste is weak, of course more malty than a lager but it is missing sometging to be better like ginger bread. It is not a bad one regarding the fact that it is a budget beer.
