Alfa Bokbier at home. ABV 6.5%
Brown clear colour, with a small head.
Smells a bit skunky and old. Medium bitterness on the taste.
Quite thin on the body, average carbonation. Sort of oily on the palate though.
Overall a below the average bock.

Very clear dark brown, with surprisingly light colored head.
Smell: pilsner malts, some yeast, very fresh almost like a spring rain or something. Not what I'd expect from a bokbier at all.
Taste: slightly sweet malts, then some brown suger, very dark chocolate, roasted malt, balanced with some yeasty bitterness with light touch of hop. Later more citrus,. pilsner malts, and the aftertaste is a bit sugary but not in a very pleasant way.
Mouth: medium with lots of carbonation. But the taste is very full, light touch of alcohol, works nicely all together.
Overall: I don't mind sweet beers, but this seems almost like a sweet pilsner. There's not much to give body to the sweetness. A bok should have a bit more to it than this. Not bad, but not something I will drink often.

A dark amber, bright beer with a small head.
Smell of roasted malt and caramel, slightly hoppy with some diacetyl (butterscotch), which is also present in the Alfa pilsener.
Taste of roasted malts with caramel and some maltbitterness. The malt backbone is very solid and really keeps the beer in control. The beer is not very sticky like most Dutch bockbeers, which is good. Halfway the beer starts to become more maltbitter and I can taste a bready taste.
Aftertaste is sweet and maltbitter with some burned dryness. A good example of a Dutch bockbier!
