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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle from a sampler from a Wegman’s somewhere in Northern Virginia. Pours a clear orange-amber with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is caramel, nutty notes and honey. Taste is grainy, bitter grassy hops and a light fruity finish. Something a bit vegetal and unpleasant is in there also. Medium bodied. Very poor example of the style.
