Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2006
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.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2006 Bottle... Clear, yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Very good retention. Earthy, floral aroma with light accents of citrus and toffee. Fruity, malty flavor with toffee and mild bitterness. Hints of caramel and spicy hops... very subtle. Medium-bodied and velvety with medium carbonation. Finishes bittersweet.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2009
Pale amber/gold beer. Aroma is fairly malty. Light sweetness. A little bit earthy and chewy with a fairly clean character. Fairly clean maltiness with a bit of light hoppiness. It’s a decent, non-offensive heller bock.
