czar (4367) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
pours unclear light yellow with a very small white cap showing very little retention, no lacing per say. sweet grains - honeyed and doughy malts, grassy nobleness, pepper, other spices, well integrated alcohol. light carbonation - could be brighter, medium body - oily and a bit sticky, semi-sweet and woodsy-peppery-grassy finish. feels a tad muted - near BB date i must say. i can still appreciate its qualities.

Transfer from BA review on 4-5-13- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance- Served a straw golden colored brew with a one finger white head. The head had a moderate level of retention, fading over time to give a light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is rather light overall and is mainly of a sweeter caramel smell mixed with some grainy aromas. Mixed with these smells is a light bit of floral hop in the nose. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and malty taste with a rather moderate amount of a caramel sweetness. Some other fruity flavors come to the tongue more toward the middle, with their nature being of lighter fruits, such as apple and pear. More toward the end the caramel fades a bit while the bready and some slightly grainy flavor of the brew are met with an arrival of a lightly herbal and floral hop flavor that leave a nice, still sweet, and malty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thicker side with a carbonation that is on the average to slightly lower side. Both do well for accentuating the malts and grain quite well, but yet do not sacrifice the drinkability and smoothness of the brew. Overall – A rather tasty, quite easy drinking, malty and somewhat sweeter bock. A good one to try.

chinchill (1867) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2014
500 ml "Limited Edition" bottle consumed near end of BB date on bottle. Tastes like a cross between a strong Marzen and a bock. Alcohol is not at all hidden. Lingering bready aftertaste with less hops than expected given the ample hop load earlier on.

Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is a dry bready malt with a nice pumpernickel. Flavor is again a dry bready malt with some dark bread notes. Nothing in wowing me here but it’s still a decent bock on the very dry and bready side.

Swing-top. Pours a clear golden color with a fair head and spotty lacing. Aroma of grass, bit of malt and spice. Taste of malt sweetness, grass and spice. Nice bitterness and afairly clean finish. Moderate body, crisp and smooth. Decent beer for the style.

500ml Bottle: Aroma is grassy hops, nice hellertau notes, and a very light malt notes. Appearance is a golden pour with a large white head that diminishes quickly. Taste is got some nice malt characteristics and the grassy hop notes. Really well balanced and rather tasty. Overall, I like it. Cheers!

eaglefan538 (2892) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pour was deep golden to amber with a nice head. Aroma of grains and pils malts and grass. Flavor followed with some pleasant lighter fruits, yet clean overall. Honey and earthiness too. Mouthfeel fairly full. Nice one.

Swingtop from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours orange tinged gold with a white head. Aroma is bready, seems a bit grapey, with some nice earth/spice. Med body or nearly. Flavor is earthy, spicy, toasty bready, with for me a bit of grape. Which makes it very pleasant to me. Not really dry, but balanced enough to make the malt pleasant. I’m likin’ it.
