3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber with good clarity and a lasting, white head. Aromas are slight bready malt with a dominating cheesy hop aroma. Light toasted flavors supported by a delicate spicy hop bitterness. Medium body, dry finish.
Flavors are fine but the aroma is a turn off.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 5/11/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear pale orange copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, apple, pear, grape, biscuit, toast, brown sugar, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and fruity ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, cracker, apple, pear, floral, grass, bread, toast, light pepper, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, floral, grass, bread, toast, and earthiness on the finish for a bit. Good balance of malt, hop, and ester flavors; with no cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Overall this is a very solid maibock. Good balance of all flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden lager-ish appearance with a nice foamy white lastying head and some lacing. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is nicely sweet. Basically the flavour of a lager but intensified. Enjoyable.

Golden Bock, medium bitterness, sweet aroma. A lighter Bock, that still packs a bite. Could easy be confused for a Mai-bock.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2): Pours a clear orange with a quickly dissipating head that leaves lacing. Aroma is candy and mild fruitiness. Taste is not that heavy. There just really ain’t enough of this. It sort of tastes like Jolly Ranchers light (without as much crappy artificial taste). Slightly sweet. Very uninteresting.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden amber pour. Typical lager aroma and almost smells like an Oktoberfest. Minimal malt taste - leaves something more to be desired. A good session beer, but not much more.
