Golden, clear as crystal with a linen white cap of foam. Slight vegetal aroma with a grainy, caramel malt flavor. Meh.

This is a pretty nice, mildly sweet bock, golden in appearance, slick on the tongue, with some good caramel and brown sugar.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: clear gold color, pours with a lofty thick off white head, settles into a denser head Aroma: subtle malt with hops at the same time, grain, pine Taste: hoppy, grain, alcohol, some sort of soapy hint in the back ground Palate: high carbonation, leaves a bitter aftertaste, leaves mouth dry Overall: to be fair this bottle is 10 weeks past the best by date, the beer does have a nice malt and hop balance ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Summer beer for sure. Not the best Bock beer I have had but, not as bad as the ratings. Nothing really special to talk about. Just know a head of time this one won’t knock your socks off and you will enjoy it.

On tap at McNellies. Pours a clear gold with white head that dissipates to the edges quickly. Aroma has a lot of musty grains with a light wet grass and sweetness. Flavor has musty grain and wheat with a bit of earthy grass.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours pale gold with a large white head. Pretty aggressive pour. Aroma is minimal. Flavor is bready malt, some caramel, slight nuttiness and spiciness, mildly hopped and bitter. Starts moderately sweet, ends pretty dry. Lagery crispness. Medium mouthfeel.

I enjoyed this brew three days after it’s best by date. Still found it crisp and fresh tasting. I had this in a pint glass rather than the recommended stein or dimpled mug. Boss Tom’s is on the job indeed. Good carbonation enlivens the citrus clover notes. Lots of complexity in a light gold package. The malts are grassy with a pleasant honey like sweetness. The hops are truly well integrated in this bock. Fresh. lemony and bright they coat the palate nicely. Very session-able this is a solid effort. I could do this with brats anytime but a lemon garlic pork also comes to mind. I tend to be skeptical of many American bocks..but this is good stuff.

Bottle from unclemike. Pours gold with white head. Nose of cereal and light flower. Taste reminds me of unbaked pretzel dough. Body is light to medium. A solid drinkable lager.
