Strong (inc. Maibock, Bock)
By Jeff Evans
A sweet mix of lemon, corn and herbs.
Crisp, bittersweet and much, much lighter than the strength would suggest. It's surprisingly delicate, which leaves it exposed to a touch of oxidation, but otherwise it is lemony and perfumed.
Pale malt lingers but herbal hops eventually make a stand as the finish turns dry and bittersweet.
A rather scruffy bottle with a ragged bit of red foil around the neck suggesting cheapness. But, really, it's not that bad at all.
By Zak Avery
Adjunct noticeable on the nose – corn and other cereal. Also an odd note savoury note that puts me in mind of pie crust.
Surprisingly light, a little sweetness, a little bitterness. Surprisingly devoid of flavour, to be honest.
Light and relatively clean. Too clean, in fact – it doesn't really taste of anything
There's nothing wrong with this at all, although there isn't anything that would really recommend it either. Surprisingly easy to drink for the strength.
