COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our spring bock is brewed strong and malty with a moderate hop bitterness and flavor. Five weeks of cold conditioning make this lager silky smooth while hiding its alcoholic stength. This beer will pair nicely with any of our smoked pork dishes, the Parma Karma, or even burgers.

Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2010
On tap, another delicious German-style lager from Fatheads. Poured slightly hazy golden color with a big fluffy white head. Sweet grainy aromas with a touch of earthy hops. Smooth flavor, do not detect the 7%+ abv. Very refreshing with good carbonation and wonderful malty flavors, biscuit, hay and some grassy/earthy hops. A very nice, flavorful lager.

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Sample at Fat Headís. Pours clear amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of lager yeast, sweet malt, caramel and a bit of fruit. Lager yeast flavor with sweet malt, fruit and crisp noble hops before a creamy caramel finish.

baraciisch (1887) - USA - JUL 5, 2010
Aroma is citrusy, flavor definitely not as hoppy or even sweet as Sierra Nevadaís 30th anniversary version, but definitely a solid beer nonetheless...

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear copper-orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Hops and fruit in the nose. Medium, clean body with flavors of sweet caramel malt, grain and fruit. Mild hops in the background. The finish is sweet with a lingering malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

cpetrone84 (1380) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2010 Had from a fresh growler poured at Fat Headís Pittsburgh. A-pours a clear golden orange color with a dense creamy white head. S-the nose has a lightly toasted bready malt, a good bit of caramel and brown sugar, notes of sticky pine and a touch of grapefruit in the back. T-the taste is quite nice, subtle notes of caramel and toasted bread, brown sugar, a touch of pine, nice hops presence in the back, grapefruit and light bitterness. very different bock, strong hop presence. M-smooth and syrupy with a lighter medium body and enough carbonation to hold throughout. the finish has a hint of crispness and is very oily throughout. D-this has huge balance and almost seems like an imperial ipa. very hoppy with a good malt presence, quite drinkable!

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Experienced on tap in an English pint glass. The beer pours a medium golden color, with a relatively frothy and fairly dense white head. The nose gives a bit of bready malt character, followed by on odd, almost estery character. The palate lacks the deep malt notes that are present in the best examples of the style. The beer is clearly malt-forward, but lacks depth. Also out-of-character is the aforementioned estery note. Overall, not terrible, but in need of a more aggressive malt character, and a reevaluation of the yeastís assertiveness.
