Amber tan with streamers and a big pile of craggy eggshell foam.
Light sour toffee and flinty grain nose.
Brown baguette, caramel apple, and salted peanuts with a light noble buzz.
Toast and dried apricot finish and drying cut hay linger.
Light with only thoughts of medium, crisp, slight warmth.

On the dry, hoppy side of bocks, and I'm not complaining. Sweetness is restrained in favor of nutty, toasty, salty malts. Soft fizz, super clean finish and at this strength the ABV is still somehow not overplayed. Yum!

One of the better German 'normal' beers. In fact almost all beers in Germany are normal, only a few are mindblowing.

This was a pleasant exeption in the beermass. Bottle best before december 2012.

Poured in my Struise glass as always this beer looks like tea, a nice brown colour. Thick head, five fingers. Some carbonation but not much, a pity.

Decent smell of malt and some light citrus notes. The foam sticks nicely in the glass.

Sweeter taste than for a normal German beer with some bock feeling at the end. Not bad, try it when you see it.

This girl gives a good and easy three inch slab of head. Underneath the beer is medium darkish copper with some reeasonable beading.
To taste there is fruit, candy sugar, some yeastiness with notes of toffee which are sharpish and lead to an edgy almost metallic end. There is just a flake of chewiness to the body which promises to deliver sticky sappiness which appeals to the palate.

There's alot going on here but it ends up being a cacophony of many flavours which just doesn't bring much harmony or joy.
