4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear, rich, golden hue with a sparse snow white head. Smells of fruity malt with hints of tart apple cider.
Taste is rich, bright, pale malt. Sweetish and lightly fruity. Hints of green apple. Some muted hops in the finish. Strangely, a bit dry up front, with a sweetish but clean finish. Really tasty. This stuff is money. And it’s a great beer for the money. Check out a six-pack (it may take a full six-pack to get this beer), hell, it’s cheap!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle purchased in CT. Back of the bottle states: "Ale/Malt Liquor 6.2% alc. vol". Front of the bottle says "J.W. Dundee’s Pale Bock Big & Malty Lager". My question...is this an ale or a lager? I will decide after this rating. Aroma is lightly sweet, with grainy corniness present with some brown sugars. Transparent golden color with a smallish white head. Sweet, harsh, grainy, ethanolic start with some dirty, bitter, earthy hops to finish. I don’t know why they state "ale/malt liquor" on the back, but this is clearly a souped up pale lager that they try to call a bock. I think it’s closer to a malt liquor.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a small diminishing white head. Aromas of bread, a bit of fruitiness and a hint of honey. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, some honey notes and a hint of lemon with a crisp clean finish. Reminds me more of a decent pale lager than a bock.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy & deep golden color, at first a decent-sized soft & fluffy white head, but it was quickly reduced to near nothing after only a about ten seconds or so, nose of sweet malt & honey, full-bodied, very heavy taste, you could probably only have two or three of these before you’d fill up, slightly over-carbonated body with flavor notes of sweet malt, honey, lemon & orange peel, very sweet finish & aftertaste where the citrus flavors really show through,. overall really not that bad of a bock beer, but one that you could go out and have five or six of

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark gold with a slight off white head. Light smell of malt but very little hops. A flavor of sweet malt and citrus. A rich mouthfeel but slightly foamy. I like the hint of alcohol.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Light golden, translucent, large foamy/rocky off-white head, very few bubbles floating about, decent lacing. Pale malty aroma, slightly bready, a bit of cookie dough and even some pale fruit. Big doughy flavor on the tongue, slightly bready, otherwise pale malts, slightly sweet. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Fairly clean finish, remains bready with a somewhat sweet maltish background that has hints of pale fruit skin. It is certainly a Pale Bock, and sweet one at that.   One of the better JW Dundee beers I have had. Thanks Dan!

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
weak malty aroma. medium bodied and syrupy. golden beer with good lacing and a medium sized white creamy head. very light flavor of grainy malts and grass. alcohol is somewhat apparent from the use of pale malts instead of full flavored ones.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured light golden almost orangie appearance with a little head and good lacing. Aroma was like a light bock. A mix of bread, molasses, and dough all in light amounts. Taste was just a light bock. I didn’t taste any pale characteristics.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Light amber body with moderate carbonation and an average white foamy head. Fair malty aroma with sweet and alcohol notes. Its malty/hoppy taste lacks complexity and is characterized by a rather strong presence of alcohol. Leaves a short bittersweet and alcoholic aftertaste. This is a bad Bock.
