2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bock pours a medium brown color with almost no foam. Nor is there any carbonation visible. The aroma is not very pleasant. It has hints of a stagnant fish pond. Flavor is much better than the aroma. There is a nice mix of malt and hop as well as sweet and bitter. It also offers a nice tartness. Despite the aroma I liked this beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Beer pours a clear medium orange-gold color with a small, off-white, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma isn’t very nice: malty with moderate notes of husky toasted grain, light notes of caramel; yeasty with a trace of dough; moderate-to-heavy miscellaneous notes of cooked corn/DMS, diacetyl, higher alcohols (smells like a bad mead) and a trace note of honey. The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately bitter with a long, unclean, warm, lightly bittersweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Head is initially small, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear light amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, husks), with notes of DMS and chemicals.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, husky, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Extremely poor. Blindly I would call this an American Dark, not a bock. It’s just swill lager with some color in its cheeks. Undrinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the best southern made bocks that I have ever tasted. Very well balanced and a great amount of appropriate maltiness.

Grassy aroma smells adjuncty. Quite unexpected aroma. Clear amber with a tiny white head. Fore is thin and touches on toasty grains and mild apple notes. Pervasive watery flavor throughout. Very low flavor intensity.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a small head. Fairly standard malty Bock aroma. Simple flavor, with malt and not much else. Good, but nothing special.
