3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
6.8 % abv. nice hazy nutbrown body with a pretty worthless head. Aroma is pretty weak (Cumberland beers seems to be uniformly lacking in pungent aromas) with hints of nut and wood. Simple roasted nut flavor with a rich maltyness balanced by a moderate bitterness. A bit rugged upfront with a nice mellow finish that develops quite a bit.Medium body with medium to high carbonation - just a bit too overcarbonated. Overall: simple and solid.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a nice golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is heavy with sweet malts. Notes of hops stand out as well. On the palate this beer is crisp and refreshing with the perfect amount of carbonation. The aroma descibes the flavor of this bock. It finishes crisp and clean, leaving an after taste of sweet malts and a little bit of hops. I found this beer to be very refreshing.
