Bottle. Pours a golden-amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is light with some bread and corn notes to it. Taste is a little sweet, but still light and crisp. Very drinkable brew, though there is nothing particularly special about it...

1guywith_aboat (227) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Pours light gold/bud yellow with a white, well-laced head. Big malty aroma with some yeast in there. Taste is malt liquor and nothing else. This is not a Bock, it is too busy being a malt liquor. Pretty tasty for a malt liquor.

RamyG4 (320) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle. Pale golden beer with a medium off-white head. Aroma is grain, honey, some caramel. Taste is medium-heavy sweet, almost no bitterness. Finish is sweet. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation. Bland and boring.

pushkinwow (2033) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear light copper with a light biege head. Grainy, some malt, bit sweet and roasted, moderate to high carbonation, light body, little dry, some stale caramel on the finish (like dried out caramel cubes).

Metalchopz (2316) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
Part of their 2013 spring/summer Variety 12-pack purchased in Syracuse, NY. Pours a clean golden colour with a frothy, slightly creamy white head, average retention and lots of dirty lace. Sweet malty nose with some alcohol. Very sweet tasting malt grain that leaves a cereal aftertaste. Reminds me of the sweetness of some malt liquors. Thankfully, some hop comes balancing things with some grassy notes in the end. Still, not my thing.

Really enjoyed this beer. Very surprised by its malty, sweet goodness and distinct "bock" flavor. Reminded me of some of the better dopple bocks ive had. Definitely worth a try.

ADesenberg (626) - Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle: pours a light yellow color. Aroma is sweet bread. The taste is no surprise based on that... Sweet, slight citrus... But way to sweet for me. Boo.

EtTuCthulhu (1070) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 9, 2013
The aroma is subtle with hints of yeast coming through until a sweet note arises at the end of the sniff; also, the appearance is a golden color with a small white head. The taste is slightly sweet and slightly sour, and the palate combines a medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and an abrupt finish.

Clear Gold Color, Good Head, Lots of Lacing. Sweet and Bitter. Better Than Expected. Decent.

12oz bottle. Pours a nice golden honey color, with a moderate head that fades quickly to some lacing. Aroma of mild malts with a trace of sweetness & citrus. Taste is also of mild malts with a caramel sweetness & citrus.
