COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - June to August.
Our chestnut-coloured summer ale, was inspired by the European dark lager-style ales and made in the Amber way of blending tradition with the contemporary. It has a clean tasting Munich malt base and low hop aroma making it decidedly moreish and easy to drink.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
A Sim rate (cask at Chelmsford BF): Smells very wheaty, but not great. Like bread on the verge of going off. Tastes similar. Aftertaste of olive oil.

Fin (7421) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2007
Cask at Merton Summer Beer Festival 06-07-07. Poured copper in colour and with a slight sulphur nose. This had a strange taste a tiny edge of smokiness was there as was a very thin almost nothing taste for a bit, Im not familiar with this style at all but will go with what Glen says that this isnt really a true Bock, in truth it wasnt really making an impact with me whatever box it needed to sit in, as it tasted far too shallow for my liking.

imdownthepub (10297) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2007
Cask conditioned at Merton beer Festival 07. Copper colour with thin head. Dry, quite chalky, powdery malty body with a definite alcohol note despite the lowish ABV. I really tried to fit it into a Bock category, but failed, not really a bitter either but it had to go somewhere. Not much finish to it for me, obviosly too delicate for my palate, ho hum.
