Bottle. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Honey and malt aroma. Honey and caramel flavor. Medium bodied. Honey and caramel lingers. Not bad, but just a bit too sweet.

Bottle as Primator Maibock, which is Primator Blonde Bock on BA, which is an alias of this on this site. And the bottle is 7.5%. Golden color with a huge finely bubbled head. Fairly strong aromas of noble hop and honeyish breadiness. Pretty much medium body with mild carbonation. There’s a lot of alcohol flavor, not heat burn, just alcohol. It’s pretty bitter. Pretty grassy. But the malt liquor aspect of the alcohol and the grain work against enjoyment. And I’m not sensitive to diacetyl, but this seems to have it.

Bottle from Bellingers, Jet Garage, Grove Nr Wantage, Oxon 26-07-09 Pours warm gold with white head. Aroma is a bit honey and malt. Taste is big on the alcohol, quite bitter, hops are there along with some vanilla and a touch of soft creaminess. Ok its a fairly pokey strong lager, but I didn’t mind it. A6 A4 F7 P3 Ov13 3.3
