COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Bock Lager has robust malt overtones yet finishes smooth. Masterfully crafted from only the finest ingredients.

Pours a nice amber-chestnut into the glass, with a 1-finger eggshell head that reduces to a thin cap that leaves soapy webbed lace. The nose is of very candied sweet malt. Flavors are similar, very sweet upfront and finishing somewhat unilaterally, albeit burnt toffe-esque. Not bad, with a smooth mouthfeel, just not expanding on the complexities of better, top-tier bocks. Subtle carbonation inside a medium body. Decent, and would have again.

Bottle, thanks to Mei. Reddish dark amber pour with some beige head. Aroma is sweet grain and caramel malt, lightly toasted. Flavor is the same, kind of nutty also. Doesn’t seem like a lager to me.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 11/20

The aroma is intense cherry liqueur, with a heavy lacquer. There is really something off about the scent. The appearance is triaminic red-orange. Healthy fluffy head. Clear with good carbonation. The flavor is strong cherry cordials. Sweet malts, reminiscent of toffee. A very astringent finish, like nail polish. It’s very sweet and buttery, but passable. Touch of butterscotch, with a metallic finish. Thick and slick, buttery feel. It’s a very sweet and astringent beer. Cherries and toffee. Eh, not that bad but no repeat needed.

Originally reviewed: 2/24/10. Poured into a mug. This pours a crystal clear amber with a thick off-white head on top. Retention was weak; left little lace. Scents of roasted malts, caramel, and light cocoa. Nice. The body was a bit on the spritzy side. Carbonation level could be tamed down somewhat. Nice malty backbone with a touch of hoppy bitterness, and a sweet finish. This was plenty quaff-able. I enjoyed this one a lot. Could become a staple this spring.

3.5
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20

Pours a transparent deep copper amber with a spotty lacing cream-colored head. Has a semisweet toasty grainy German malty nose with a touch of noble hops. Starts with good fullness and a grainy caramel malty sweetness well balanced with some slightly resiny earthy green hops finishing drier crisp and bittersweet. Very true to style and enjoyable.
