22 ounce bottle thanks to Seth for sharing. Light fruity flavors and some malt sweetness. Ok overall. Not very big in flavor.

Bottle. Clear, dark gold with a medium head. Aroma is full of grains with hints of sweetness. Taste is well balanced with just a tad too much sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shitty hay nose, peas, lemony accents. Clear amber, thick head. Cleaner on the palate, still hay, but with a grassier note on the back end. Slightly bready. Light body. I have to be in a special mood for bocks, now is not one of those times, but I’m trying to objective.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Gorgeous looking, if standard visuals for "beer" ... copper/bronze, quite active, with a nice head. The aroma is enormous "lager" ... malty and sugary all the way. But this drinks with a rich balance, with an admitted hint of some really bad malt liquors lingering in the forefront, but much better finessed and delivered. Fun. (#5562, 6/23/2014)

22 oz bomber. Yellow colored pour with a white head. Smell is fruity, malty, a little bit of hops. Taste is similar, kind of watery and has a bit of an alcohol burn. Pretty good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml. bottled 05-02-2014 pours clear and shiny golden with a huge sugary topping of foam. Nose has a touch of honey, crisp apple with some mild spiciness, and grassy herb. Tastes the same with a finish that shows just enough dry grass to balance the big malt. Medium body has medium-high carbonation and an excellent balance. Just a faint touch of the 8%.

Old gold, clear, nice white head. Smells bready, toasty, and peppery. Nicely crisp palate. Taste is bready, toasty, grassy and a peppery finish. It definitely hides it’s ABV, too. Very tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours a clear medium gold with a thin half finger white head. Really good head but lacing is nearly nonexistent.
Aroma has fairly heavy notes of caramel and toast along with a fairly assertive grassy hop note. A whiff of alcohol comes through underneath.
The flavor is lighter on the caramel leaning more towards biscuit with hints of toast and cracker. Very slightly metallic but it is not distracting. Hops figure somewhat heavy in this brew but they are very subtle. Moderate to high bitterness throughout with some background grass and hay. It helps to balance out the comparatively high maltiness. This brew isn’t’ overly sweet, however, and has just a little stickiness on the finish.
Overall, for a style I am not particularly fond of I enjoy this beer. It is not too sweet and the alcohol is well hidden. Nice job by Foothills.
