Pours dark golden to amber coloured with an OK foamy white head. Earthy herbal, slightly honeyish aroma. The flavour is quite faint, caramel malty with a weak hoppy note. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel and a subdued bitterness, a bit blandish aftertaste. BB date was this month, so it aged a little bit. This doesn’t feel a lot heavier than a Märzen, but I enjoyed it!

Bottle, 6.0%. Lagery aroma. Clear grey amber colour. Semi-stable, frothy white head. The flavour is vinous with some alcohol. Has a little sour note along with a malty and spicy touch. Good mouthfeel. Lukardo (127) - CROATIA - DEC 23, 2013

0.5 l bottle from Spar in Semriach. Poured deep golden body with small head. Sweetish flower malty aroma, with touch of honey. Flavor sweetish malty again, quite full bodied, honeyish and pleasant, with just a hint of alcohol, well hidden with pleasant sweetness from my perspective. However, my girlfriend thought it is pretty alcoholic for given ABV. Small carbonation with fine oily texture. Had pleasant, not so long, sweetish finish. Quite good beer.

0,5 l bottle. Golden body with a small lacing white head. Liqueric malt nose with caramel and honey, some spicy perfume of vanilla and bubblegum. Sweet malt taste with liqueric flavor, minimal hop in the finish, bubblegum character again. graziano85 (466) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 21, 2013

0.5l bottle purchased at some Spar near Leibnitzoh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 3, 2011
This poured a nice bronze colour with a bedium sized head. Unimpressive malty/grainy nose. The taste is weak. A pleasant, chewy mild hopiness (that was lemony and/or metallic at times) is the focal point of this one and it continues nicely into the aftertaste, and I dig that. One can, however feel just a week, "skittish" crude malty, maaaaybe even alcoholic taste. The taste differs a lot from the crude alcohol-crude bitterness assault I recieved from some other Austrian pale bocks, and it’s understandable, as this isn’t exactly a true bock but an ice beer. So "ordinary" and yet it eludes most conventional categories.
Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, sweet malty and also has some mild notes of alcohol in it. Flavour is sweet malts along with caramel malts, mild fruityness as well as some mild wooden notes. Quite pleasantly balance.
