COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Genesee Bock Beer Special Edition, from Genesee!
Our take on the 16th century German legend has turned out to be a legend in its own right. For every spring since 1951, our brewery has carefully crafted and lagered Genesee Bock Beer. The result is an exceptionally hearty, full-flavored beer with a slight malty finish—and a perfect way to celebrate the snow melt.

Can. My first thoughts when I see this brand are "stale nearly green putrescence!". In other words, I am by no means a fan of "Genny". However, this brew proves to have some redeeming values, most certainly not in the outdated (1970’s) can art! Anyways, the brew poured a slight reddish brown with a very nice thick head, which diminished quickly. Aromas are that of sweet malts and some notes of caramel. Very light bodied and in flavour as well. But it is quite drinkable. This is by no means a typical bock, I think they sort of missed their target, but made a decent brew at that! Enjoy it if you can find it.

bnokk (453) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2016
APPEARANCE- dark amber color with slightly beige head. NOSE- earthy & slightly bitter hop scent. FLAVOR- a bit malty with slightly bitter hop flavors. NOTES- May be one of Genesee’s best offerings, but does not stand up well to the bock beer style.

Bottle - small foamy head, dark amber/brown color, sweet malty aroma and flavor, some earthy hop balance in the background, not bad overall

kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Sweet malty and caramel aroma; little more sweet than I’d like. Flavor: mostly follows suit, but lighter on the sweetness. Actually a little bland and flat, especially in the finish and aftertaste. Not really my thing. Don’t plan on getting again.

Patrickctenchi (5953) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Can: Clear, copper-brown with a huge, frothy tan head. Caramel, nutty, woody aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, toasted nutty malts.... Feels pretty light, but has a pleasant, easy flavour. Pretty good.

First off, the majestic heraldry on the can: a cute billygoat argent, to dexter, courant, with mullets Or on a field of verd. Bready aroma and amber appearance. Taste is light sweet and light bitter at the same time. It’s exactly as described: full-flavored lager with slight malty finish. Pairs well with a bacon-burger and oven-roasted potatos.

Onslow (1378) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2015 Pour from a 12oz can, 12 pack from Horrock?s i n Battle Creek. Nice looking clear copper brew with off white head. Aroma is caramel with nutty notes, some sort of spice barely detectable. Taste is sweet malt and caramel up front transitioning to a slightly nutty finish. As per the style, very little overt hops present but the finish is clean and offset by some degree of bittering. Average to lighter palate. I?m glad I ran into this!

KyotoLefty (9140) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle gifted by the barman at the Brew House. Big thanks. Reddish brown with a tall head. Caramel and raisin nose. Creamy caramel flavor, vanilla, raisins. A bit too light in body, and slightly candy-ish, but still pretty decent. Enjoyable, light, and easy drinking but still with flavor. Best beer they make for sure.
