This bock is a mild twist on the traditional malt-bill of the style. The color is golden and it is a beautiful beer in a glass. The taste strikes a good balance of malt and hops. This beer will pair well with a variety of foods. All that said, I prefer a more traditional bock.

Nice beer for its style that pours cloudy yellow and has a nice head. GB always has a good presentation. Bit of a bit but a good alcohol content for their beers. I have been alternating between this and the summer lately.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft sample @Syracuse location. Clear yellow color some head and lace. Nose and flavor is the same. Decent balance of hops and malt. It’s true to the style just a tad boring. Maybe upping the hops would help kick this up a notch. Body is thin and watery. Meh
