Purchased at the Jasons supermarket in Taipei City, Taiwan; coming in the same swing-top brown bottle as illustrated above, BB 14/09/2012, served lightly-chilled in a slim pilsner glass.

A: pours a dark yellow gold to amber hue, coming with moderate flows of tiny bubbles and a very good clarity, topped with a slowly-retreating white foamy head.
S: sweetness upfront is mixed of malts, melted malt candy, and hot/warm cane sugar juice, on top of lightly grassy notes not far from that of a Saaz hop-dominated malty pilsner. Quite straight forward.
T: a refreshing swallow as of liquid malt candy leads towards to a grassy-hoppy&grainy middle which then leaves an expanding flow of mildly herbal and dryish hop bitterness to (effectively) cleanse the palate, while esters as of yum & corn’s undertones linger in the long finish balanced by very mild sour edges. This experience repeats in every sip, showing a rather good integrity, I guess.
M&D: the mouthfeel is generally very soothing and “gently refreshing”, due to the soft carbonation, while the body remains medium thanks to the un-sweet malty & lightly dry flavor profile. All in all, this is to me a friendly, albeit somewhat “quiet”, pale Bock that perhaps could be more charming if lager’s sourness was more pronounced.

33cl bottle poured into UK pint sleeve

BBE 4 Feb 2011

A- Golden body with excellent clarity. 3 finger rocky soapy head sits atop which reduces quickly. Lacing is good.

S- Distinct aroma of pear drops, hint of dms and pepper.

T- Applelike sweetness meets a faint toasted malt note with a hint of hop in gloopy sticky finish.

M- Medium carbonation, thick sticky body and finish.

D- Its really too sweet and messy on the palate/nose. Lacks the lager cleanliness and toasted malt richness of the better examples of the style.

Stacks of pure white froth that webs over a pale brass body. Flowers, honey and country white bread nose.
Lean fresh grain and table water cracker with lemongrass husk hops.
Yellow pear finish and lingering bitterness. Light, round and crisp.

Very much more a Marzen or even an Imperial Pils than a Bock of any sort - significant Noble hops bite with no real malty sweetness. Not to style, but a nicely assertive lager. Best of the mostly mediocre Flensburger range.

.33cl swing-top, best before 2/4/12. 'Plop!

Pours a clear, vibrant gold with a thick, eggshell head. Good retention and lacing.

The aroma is lager-like and slightly sulfuric. Some malts, but there could be more.

Flavor is sweet, bready and malty, but well-balanced by some floral hops and a sturdy alcohol flavor. There's good depth to the malt flavor, with notes of fresh dough, cookies and brioche. Clean, with a swift finish. The mouthfeel has fluffy carbonation, but is a touch drying and/or abrasive.

In the end, this is a bit hot for a good Maibock. Maybe it needs another month or two to condition and round out. Still solid though, and a welcome new beer to the Flens lineup.
