3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden colour with coarsish carbonation and a white head that left some lace on the side of the glass. The aroma is an interesting one with classic golden Germanic malts to the fore, some toffee and a bit of a signature ’there’s a fair amount of alcohol here John, I hope you haven’t got much planned for this afternoon’. I say that, but it could be easily overlooked. There’s also some dried orchard fruit aroma as well. Initially bubbly and then the full bodied juicy whack that also brings out caramel and toffee. It is unctuous without being over-sweet. The finish is one that gives a nod to highish alcohols and fruity esters that dries and leaves you with orange oil and mace.
Clear. Darker golden. Not a lot of head. Aroma is soil. Taste is lots of overly sweet malt with some dark fruits. Not great. mikeyo1 (871) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2017

Прекрасный карамельный вкус. Что-то между петушками и дюшесом. Алко не выпирает. Mister_Li (1564) - GERMANY - SEP 1, 2017
Klares Gold mit relativ wenig Schaum. Malzig, süß, etwas Honig, Vanille, leicht ölig, würzig, alkoholisch. mariuszek (1487) - Gdynia, POLAND - AUG 31, 2017
Clear, dark golden, medium head. Sweet malty and grainy aroma. Full bodied, medium carbonation, sweety, malty taste, alcohol well hidden. GhostS (516) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 30, 2017
Aromă ușoară, cu multă dulceață de cireșe albe și caramelă, malț, ceva miere.
Gust ușor dulce, puțină amăreală de frunze uscate, duritate de alcool - un liqueur slab (sau chiar divin) de caramelă, ceva plante medicinale și miere.
Un bock bun, dar cu prea multă duritate alcoolică. Olorin (59) - Graz, AUSTRIA - JUL 14, 2017
330 ml bottle. Clear pale amber colour, small head with hardly any durability, low lacing, soft carbonation. Nose is sweet malt, raisins, peaches. Flavour is heavily sweet, syrup-like, again interesting fruity notes of peaches, honey, strong alcoholic. Finally there is some bitterness in the medium long finish. Quite heavy, indeed a "Cognac of beers". Sharing a bottle for two is recommended!
