2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brownish amber body, thin yet creamy white head. Nondescript light bready aroma. The flavor has toffee sweetness along with leafy bitterenss. Annoying solvent notes in the finish. Oxidized? Too much alcohol? Who knows, but this bottle didn’t impress.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What you would expect from a good, solid bock. Crisp and clean with a bready finish. Nice labels, not sure about the green bottles. Very good overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good solid offering. Fresh off the tap, nice copper/amber hue, built head and clean finish. Not too sweet, not too heavy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper with a big white head. Lightly skunked (green bottle), but some biscuity malts come through in the nose. Flavor is medium sweet, with bready/biscuity malts, caramel, and a light bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer after separating from the 12 ounce green bottle set in the glass a translucent deep gold color, the head is portly in size, the texture semi-creamy, and the color a very light tan white with the residual lace a thick and clinging sheet to the glass. Nose is sweet malt, fresh and crisp to the senses, start is ambrosial, nice malt presence, the top is middling in its feel. Finish has a brisk acidity with a mild hops presence, very dry and lingering aftertaste, nice mild and drinkable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wasn’t crazy about this beer, it really didn’t leave much of an impression on me. Pretty solid all around, the hop bitterness is there and it’s good. Really nothing to complain about here. Just seemed unspectacular to me, but really not much to complain about here.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I liked this stuff a lot. I don’t expect much for funny green bottles so my expectations were low. Nice dough aroma with a nice malty taste. Didn’t taste like any bock that I’ve ever had but I would drink this again in a minute. Head lasted all the way through. Nicely done.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden color with a white head. The taste is malty with a slight hoppy palate. Slight watery and not the most exciting beer.

A great beer for me, very crisp, clean taste, and nice to drink, got it at a german market in Huntington Beach, Ca, will buy more next time! Nice aftertaste, wish I had 6 instead of One!

Tap at Old Bay. Hoppy Mai bock. Good beer. Crisp, clean and malty with some hop bitterness. Enjoyable.
