3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2003 Bottled. Another fine Wisconsin German beer. Dark malts just right, sweet & lip-smacking. Nice to just stick your nose in and inhale (bocks and amber lagers can be some of the most 'beery' smelling beers I've found). A fine, though not exceptional, example of the style. You'd be well advised to buy this when in season, or in one of Capital's "brewery tour" 8-packs.
These guys have shown they can do very good beers that stick to style, and their uniform label design suggests they want to get placed in the store with the mega beers. Hope they decide to go wild and do something special!

pours a clear deep gold to light amber with a medium off white head. aroma is malt, hay, grass. good malt character. semi sweet with just a whisper of hop bitter. fairly crisp, not syrupy like many bocks. Pretty quick somewhat dry finish. Good beer.

aroma is almost non existent. flavor is very good with very little after taste. this is a good beer for flavor but falls short on all other categories.

(Backlog) Bottle of fantasy tasting at Paul’s. Golden pour with white head. Light malt, and sweetness, with a touch of spice tones, ugh.

A very nice springtime beer. Some hops on nose, citrus, but also toasty bread. Flavors of bread, barley, and a little caramel on the palate. Finishes clean with a nice little bit of hop character.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2014 12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. A doughy, buttery biscuit-like aroma comes off the pour. This subsides a bit and is joined by a light citrus and peach fruitiness. I was also able to pick up some light vanilla notes, and something that resembled dutch apple pie. A hint of a floral quality comes through late as well as a buttery caramel syrup. The beer pours a clear golden orange with a soft, off-white head that reduces to a dishwater thin layer by the end; it does leave an average lacing along the glass. The taste is a medium sweetness with a light / medium-light roasty bitterness that appears only at the finish. The medium bodied beer has an average amounts of soft carbonation (maybe a bit on the flat side) that helps the thinner texture to have a bit of a creamy quality to it. The mouth is mostly a fruity, juicy sweetness a mild roasted nut and grassy finish. There’s a touch of dryness right at the finish, but the aftertaste is mostly juicy - a very light, mellow grassy and resin aftertaste ends up being mostly a mild buttered biscuit taste after awhile.
