blankboy (6150) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2006
On tap at Coles, Buffalo, NY. Pours a clear bubbly amber-gold with a small lasting white head. Aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit and wood notes. Flaour’s the same along with some hops and a mild alcoholic finish. Decent enough but it didn’t rock my boat.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2006
Draught. At Cole’s, Buffalo, NY. Clear amber-gold with a small white draught head. Roast caramel malt aroma, with toasty nut and oats, a hint of Wee Heavy petrol tang, nicely sweet/spicy. Tastes of honey-sweet toasted grain and oats, noticeable hop presence balances out the sweetness, although it has a hint of wildness in the slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is grainy and a little astringent, average body for a bock - pretty darned nice, I’m not a big one for bocks, but this went very well with my BBQ pulled pork wrap.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Earthy toasted malt aroma with that marvelous sour bock thing going on (what the heck is that called?) and some sweet candi hints. Flavor is nutty, earthy, deeply roasted malts. Flowery hops surface for a second, and then a nice finish

DYCSoccer17 (3330) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2004
On tap. Malty, sweet, some chocolates, some smokiness too. Pours a transparent golden copper color with no head. An ok beer. Sweet and decent for sessions.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2004
Growler. Pale golden brown with a small white head. Malty aroma with an underlying fruitiness. Nice malty flavor with a dry crispness. Some hints of wood, and a slight touch of cherry. Nicely balanced bock.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2003
On tap. Copper colored, cream-colored head. Strong malt prescence with a bit of earthiness. Fairly complex, with a smooth finish. Not bad at all.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2003
Sampled on draught at the brewery
Copper-coloured maibock. Malty nose with hay (from the Perle), cherries, and woody notes. The palate shows flashes of the rich malt and vibrant complexity that I look for in a maibock. It's hoped that future batches really take the melanoidins and nuances to this level in a more assertive fashion.
