3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Pours golden amber that is very clear and sparkling. Average off-white head that has good lacing all but disappears. Light malty smell with a moderate citrusy/grassy hop character. Starts sweet and finishes just slightly bitter - average duration. Somewhat light bodies but nice oily texture and definite carbonation. Nice beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear gold with a reddish hue, visible carbonation and a thin, white head that fades. Decent lacing. Soft, subtly malty aroma. Light, creamy, barely effervescent mouthfeel. Taste is a bit on the straw-like side with a sour/sweet aftertaste. Odd flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle courtesy of Headbanger. Color is a light tan amber with light carbonation and a thin head. Aroma of sweet caramel. It has a medium body that gives a rich and yet crisp mouth feel. Flavor comes in with grain and caramel then some spicy hops give it a peppery note and an even bitterness. The pepper and bitter stand out a little more in the after taste. Overall it a well done Bock.

Pours a cloudy golden color with very little head. Light hoppy smell. Bitter taste of hop with some malt undertone. Palate is a little creamy. Too bitter for my taste.
