Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 At Clybourn: A so-so bock. Iyt pours a clear amber color with lazy carbonation and a respectable, white head. The aroma is sweet malt with a handful of herbal hop bitterness... just a bit too much for the style. Not a bad taste to this medium bodied beer - caramel malt and herbal bitterness. Okay, just not very exciting.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Draught, Clybourn brew-pub (2004 version): clear amber, and a thin white head (that, as usual, can only be blamed on the bar tender . . .) Thick aroma is filled with fresh hops and a slightly sour malt character. Crisp and wonderfully smooth on the palate, incredibly drinkable. After-taste is a bit winey, but overall I liked the flavours: fresh lager hops with the malt profile of a bock.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Light amber with a tinge of red, almost clear. Has a minimal head and a malty aroma. Starts out smooth, and i could taste a bit of banana with a slightly acidic/bitter taste on the tongue from the hops at the finish.

thedm (4972) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 17, 2003
This brew poured a medium head of off-white small to large sized bubbles that left a fair lacing and atransparent uncarbonated light brown colored body behind. It has a fruity apple malt aroma and a fruity apple malt bitter flavor to boot. Its mouthfeel is smooth initially then finishes bitter.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
Orangey-amber; malty aroma with a hint of plastic. Clean, malty palate – a little bland. Alcohol isn’t masked very well either.

hoppygrrrl (104) - Albion, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2003
This bock has a spicy, alcohol nose and a lovely, clear amber color (like stained glass). Sweet and salty at the same time.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2003
Clear orange-ambler w/ small off-white head. Clean, sweet aroma w/ light hops in the background. Medium body, perhaps a little too light. Crisp, fresh malt flavour. Moderately dry, hoppy finish.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2003
RBSG2003 This beer rocks! Deep, beautiful, clear orange/amber brew. The aroma is of white wine, caramel and sweet, rich malt. The flavor is excellent. Fruity and vineous up front. A touch too sweet, but a tart, acidic, yeasty and hoppy backside keeps this beer from becoming cloyingly so. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, surprisingly dry, acrid finish. World-class beer!
