3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gotta top off the evening with a bock.Nice amber color,small off white ehad that faded quickly and left little behind.The aroma was Malty with a mild fruity presence maybe some spice but hard to say it could just be a bit peppery.Mild hops and little more.Malty taste with a slight hint of alcohol and fruit and the hops managed to get away without much of a showing.The spicy side did show but only mildly.Not bad but definatley could use some more work.

This bottled marked best before 6/17 did not state what year it was bottled int? This brew poured a large sized head of fine to large sized off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body was a carbonated transparent orange brown color. The aroma was malty and not bock like. The mouth feel had a medium tingle that smoothened in the finish. Its sweet and malty flavor went down easily.

Bottle. Poured a small white creamy and smooth head with fine sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. Fast-rising carbonation, transparent and a gold hue. The aroma was malty, sweet, and clove. The flavor was sweet, malty and very watery. The mouthfeel was smooth, watery and thin. This was a light bodied beer with sparse lacing. Nothing outstanding here.

Sweet with a fairly big head. Thought the finish was dry and the brew while acceptable not outstanding

Strange, I’m picking up some banana and clove in this beer. Otherwise the malt is sweet but poorly developed- almost adjuncty IMO. Clear golden body with a minimal off-white head. Oh, what of the aroma? Well, it’s corny sweet. This "bock" is basically an amped-up American standard or "pale lager." Leaves a grassy, rather bitter aftertaste. I like Turbodog much better.

Might be my favorite of their line, which really isn’t saying much. I have great reservations as I’ve had good and bad samples. A beer can be infectious or infected. Beware of he latter.

corny, almost vinegary nose. Sweet corny flavor, Sickly sweet finish. Bah. Body is OK, but I'd like it a bit heavier.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear amber colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of canned corn, slight hops and some malt. Light to Medium-bodied; Sweet caramely flavour with malty hints. Aftertaste clean with some malt bitterness. Overall, not horrible, but not reccomended! Thanks to Phil (haddon90) for splitting this bottle with me! I got this twelve ounce bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 12-March-2004.

Light golden color. A little white head. Malty aroma, some spice maybe, but not that impressive. Flavor was thing, some malt, but that's about it. Nothing to write home about. Bought this 12 oz bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.
