Bottle, danke Günther.. Amber, low head and carbonation. Honeyish malt aroma. Fullbodied, heather-honey sweet base - tastes more of mead than many meads I tried, flowery and good grassy and herbal notes, enough hop bitterness to cut through, quite good balance actually, dry finish and quite drinkable.

Golden color, small white head. Malty, hints of grass and honey in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish heller bock, quite malty but also quite grainy. Some alcohol. Standard, ok German Heller bock.
50 cl bottle @ wPBF’14.MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2013
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of pale malts, faint hops, some caramel and yeast. Flavor of pale malts, starch, some hay and fruity notes. Slick palate, sweetish finish. Doesn’t really hit the spot for me, a bit dull.
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Biscuity and mildly bready caramel-malty aroma with a tinge of honey and flowery hops in the background. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a modest carbonation. Bready (cara-)malt-character with notes of biscuits and honey, accompanied by flowery and delicately herbal hops; sweet-bitter and balanced malty and mildly herbal hoppy finish with caramel and floral accents in the aftertaste. The alcohol is quite well muted. Nice pale Bock. 26.XI.13 Cuso (8959) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle from trade with McTapps, many thanks, Sabine. Golden color with medium white head. Sweet malt, floral notes, honey in aroma. Taste, sweet matl, bee wax, honey, spices, some fruitiness. Very light bitterness in sweet finish. Alcohol is dangerously hidden. Good.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Bottle from McTapps, many thanks. Aroma is unusual and unpleasant. Bubble gum, alcohol, malt and some strange components. Flavor has also some strange notes of bubble gum, sweets and other artificial sweets. Maybe some faults? MichaelAwesome (6546) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2013
Vom Bürgerbräu das bisher wohl beste. Optisch gülden mit einem leicht süßen Unterton und etwas Alkohol. Aromen von Vanille und etwas Karamell. Süffig und schwer. Ich wünschte mir, mit ihm käme der Frühling schon heute. McTapps (6984) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2013
Pours out in a clear golden colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of hops and flowers. Taste of ripe hops, light malt, flowers, straw, hay and apples. Hints of berries. Very easy and nice to drink with a light gentle sweetness. Solid and quaffable Bock. HenrikSoegaard (14710) - Randers, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2013
