3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Patricks. A clear one, dark golden in color and with a dense off-white head of two finger size. There’s some alcohol on the nose, along with, grassy, resiny and peppery hops. Fruityness and a touch of maltyness too. Some hay. It’s warming and full-bodied with a pleasant level of carbonation. The flavor is quite bitter and alcoholic, with a nice hoopyness saving the day without being improperly bitter. Lightly sugary and fruity finish with bitterness and some warmth. In my opinion, it’s too warming, at least considering it supposed to be a bock. 120509

On tap @ Cardinal. Golden body with a dense off-white head. Aroma is refreshing fruity, some peaches, caramel and malt.
