(growler) Copper color with a good tan head. Aroma is light and malty with some light hints of caramel. Flavor is lightly roasted with some caramel malts, light cocoa, and some cola. Finishes slightly bitter. Average.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2011 On Tap at The Office in Canandaigua NY. According the waitress it was 6% alcohol. Dark amber pour with minimal head, even from the tap. Aroma and flavor are sweet malt with quite a bit of toastiness. I’m not sure who chose to call this a Bock, but its basically a kicked up amber. I did enjoy the toasty/doughy flavor.
12oz bottle. Clear amber color with very little head. Aroma is sweet and smokey and malty. I’m not sure what happened to the toasty, doughy character that I tasted the first time. Still, I’m enjoying in this little bock and think it actually does work well as a spring time beer.

Very faint sweet aroma. Very malty with a sour hop finish. I was expecting a pale ale and I was confronted with this. I like bocks, really I do.. but this dosn’t work for me.

Malt, hops and fizz. Wish they would serve this at the ballpark instead of flat and dry national brands. Refreshes. Pale in appearance and pales against rest of their lineup. Smells like beer, as nothing over-the-top added

A top-fermented answer to the Maibock. Nice bitterness and hop character to balance quite effectively the slight sweetness. Really takes the edge off a rainy day in spring!
