A clear and shiny golden look with a brittle head on top and plenty of lace.

A sweet and grainy malty nose, which is very thick and rounded in character. Herb-like hops are blended in very well and are somewhat fine-tuned, leaving proper space for maltiness and for this beer being a true Bock.

Again thick maltiness experienced when tasted, with the addition of a few salty touches and bigger sweetness. Hop presence is quite strong, especially in the bitter finish. The whole taste correlates perfectly with the heavy and invigorating mouthfeel. High alcohol-level conflicts slightly with the beer's easy drinking nature. Spring is definitely in the air with this one!

I am amazed that this beer hasn't reached the US. This is actually the tweaked recipe of the Jever pilsner.

Appearance is an old golden color with a firm, glass-sticking foam.

Smell is very malty with some slightly sweet biscuit notes. In the smell there is a light resinous and earthy hoparoma, which is far from sharp. The malt and hops are greatly balanced.

Taste of a big malt backbone which is slightly sweet and has a biscuit and slightly husky taste. The hops are not as bold as I expected, but they are nicely balanced by the malt. This way there is something different in every sip. Mouthfeel is very smooth, which makes the drinkability good.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Look: the beer pours a clear golden-yellow color, with a nice fluffy head.
Smell: malts, grains, biscuit, grass and earthy and herbal hops.
Taste: Malts, floral, grains, pepper with a bit more sweetness than the Jever pilsner.. Very dry for the style. Aftertaste is dry, long and very bitter.
Mouthfeel: High-carbonation, thin-medium body.
Overall: Very similar to the Pilsner style. Bit more floral and sweet, but still very dry and bitter. Nice for the style
