3.36/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

L: Pours a clear golden color. Very small top off head that disolves rapidly.

A: bread,grass,grains,caramel,herbs and honey

T: Taste start off sweet and grassy with bready notes Inn the back, then it finishes off with a strong hoppy bitterness that stays there a long time inn the aftertaste. Way to unbalanced inn the flavours for my apreciation. The bitterness get way to much.

M: medium carbonation and body.crisp and clean feel.

O: A interesting beerstyle to try. The beer is decent and drinkable, but i was not that impressed with the flavours inn this beer. When that is said I would like try more hellesbock so I could get to know the style a little more.

Clear appereance, light golden colour. Faint arome of grains.
By tasting it you can feel some sweetness from malt and grains, much sweeter than a pilsener, and with a bitter end, also bitter than a regular pilsener. Interesting for drinking a pilsener with a twist.

Heller bock with a nice sting. Aroma is a little light, but taste come through with a nice bite. Decent head fades fast, and taste is very malty, right for the style.

I bought this beer in Germany a month ago and today i cracked it open together with a spicey Indian meal.

The Ur Bock is a bit of a mystery in this beer, it is more a strong(er) pilsener.

Poured in my Struise glass this beer looks quit nice with a decent head and a yellow fluid. Light carbonation.

Bready smell with the same bready taste. A kind of sweetness in this beer which makes the beer not very special.

330 ml. bottle, clean bright golden colour with a foamy head that fades quickly, leaving no lace. Good smell of toasted grains, some fruit (apricot or peach?), caramel. Taste is the same, sweet in the beginning and slightly bitter in the end, full round body in the tongue. There's only some thing that I can't define that taste a bit like an usual big market beer, but I say is rather enjoyable.

33cl bottle poured into seidel

BBE 21 Sept 2011

A- Golden body with excellent clarity. 2 finger head reduces to 1/2 finger but is persistent. Lacing is minimal.

S- Toasted malt quality, i get a little hint of bread/dough, hint of sweetness, maybe coconut

T- Toasted malts from start to finish. Hint of hop bitterness in the finish. A creaminess lingers

M- Medium carbonation, full body, lager clean. Lacks dryness of an ideal helles bock.

D- Solid malt profile, perhaps lacks a dry finish of a classic helles bock. Nevertheless, lager clean quality is there and the malt profile is solid, very good stuff.

Einbecker Ur-Bock Hell, ABV: 6.5%.
330 ml bottle, 15.90 SEK at Systembolaget.

A: The liquid is bright gold, almost yellow. The head is white, fades away, and leave very little lacing.

S: A big, sweet aroma that gives me mixed feelings of malt whisky, lemonade, and cornflakes.

T: Heavy, roasted, bitter, and somewhat sweet taste of hops, bread, citrus, and alcohol, with hints of both chocolate and vanilla.

M: Medium-high carbonation, body and bitterness. Hints of dry metal and sweet cereal in the aftertaste. It's quite sticky.

O: Full of taste. This still doesn't make up for all the alcohol, since everything in the mouth isn't pleasing. It reminds me a little bit of the cheaper, stronger stuff alcoholics drink just to get drunk. But - as long as you don't start the evening with this - it's still OK.

33cl, best before 9/21/11.

Pours a clear, bright gold with a frothy, eggshell head. Retention is lacking, as is the lacing.

The aroma is nice, with sweet cereal grains and grassy, leafy hops.

The flavor is most excellent. A sturdy bitterness keeps the natural sweetness of the Maibock in check, but there's still a lot of doughy, decocted goodness. Hop flavor is there though, with some nicely woody and leafy Noble notes. Clean, with a bitter aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium and softly carbonated.

Really well-made and balanced Maibock here. Tasty.

3.58/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a very clear, golden yellow with medium head.

Aroma is sweet bready malts with a noticeable grassy hop character.

Taste is mosty cereal malts, sweet but not too sweet. There's a touch of citrus in the character as well. The taste moves into a mild and very pleasant grassy hop flavor that carries into the finishing.

The palate is light-bodied with decent carbonation. This is a wonderfully balanced beer that won't win any awards but is still a pleasure to drink.
