A true German style Bock beer. This Lager was aged for over six weeks and was breed with Munich malt and traditional German hops. The Bock style is light amber/brown in color with a medium-full body, rich and malty. The word Bock means Goat in German. The famous 1965/66 Hillside High School basketball team featured John "Goat" Bullock and a standout on the famous "Pony Express" team. With potential to become one of the greatest of NBA players, Goat scored 42 points in the championship game, then left for NY and was never seen again.

A very good bock, copper amber in the glass and a taste of spice. Rich and malty, easy to drink.

Nice clean malty bock, pouring a crystal clear copper with a smallish whitehead. Ample bittering hops keep things In check. Laid up against an Einbecker, this one wins.

Tap at source. Clear amber. Decent lace. Toffee and malty nose. Something medicinal and some twizzlers candy. Taste is toffee, spicy. Finishing papery and odd diet soda. A tad astringent. Still not bad. Sweeter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2011
On tap at BCBB. Lightish amber pour with only a moderate carbonation, more translucent than I expect from the style. Soft toasted malts and mild fruit in the nose but with a touch of spice that is welcome. Mouthfeel is a tad watery and theres not much happening on the palate. But again, theres a kiss of hops and spice that relieves this from being a merely functional malty bock. Not bad.

Sharp clean copper pour with one finger of sandstone head. Malt forward nose, dextrinous notes with some caramel and sweet bread and some toasted grain. Spicy and herbal hop profile with a toasty malt character. Medium body and spicy prickly palate.

TURDFERGUSON (4050) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Draft at Brewery. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a small white head. Nose is lightly bitter upfront, some light sweetness. Tastes more like a hoppy amber or APA than a bock to me. Good and sessionable though.

Draft at the brewery. Copper color with a thin white head. This struck me as similar flavor profile to some of the better Octoberfests Ive had. I initially tasted honey, candy sugar, toffee, and just enough hops to clean up the palate. As the pint lowered, the peppery hops became more apparent. What...another well made sessionable beer from Bull City?! Yup, theyre good at these.

Pours light brown in color, with a thin off-white head. Nose of honey and bread. Mild grain notes, and a touch of hop presence. Im not a huge fan of the style, but this is pretty good.
