0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
It has this metallic after taste that just throws the whole beer off. Really bland and flat. No carbonation to liven it up at all. Would never drink it again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden brown with minimal head. Not much aroma. Tastes of malt with malty raisin on the finish. Just fine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Golden-orange in colour with a very thin white head, very light lacing. The aroma is of wheat, toffee, bread. The flavour is fruity, some biscuts and toasted grains, herbal, light spice. Lightly sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, some sweetness. A wonderful beer, quite clean.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @LCBO: cloudy brown with slim chance of any head. Although, carbonation is decent. Nose comprised of citrus and darkened fruits, toast, and hops. Taste is sweet caramel with fruit and malt. Thick mouthfeel with a nice bitter end. Great on a fall day after raking the leaves.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear golden with a medium offwhite head that clings quite well to the glass and leave impressive lacing. Nose is of fruits, spices, raisins and something I’m not quite sure I can pinpoint but it is slightly off. Grass on a wet dog maybe? Taste is acidic, green apples, maybe some raisins, but definitely full of acetaldehyde. Body is light, carbonation medium-high (a bit more than that even) and you get more green apples in the finish. Overall this wasn’t good but not horrible, there are some pretty obvious flaws in this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a murky brown with just a little white head. The aromas come through pretty decent on this one with malt, brown sugar and fresh bread. The flavour is mainly malt with some yeast. While this is an interesting Bock and is quite drinkable, its also not one of my favourites. I found it a little one dimensional and lacking complexity.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This bock poured a nice amber colour with big head of off white foamy. Scents include ripe fruit, malt, and bread. First sip was smooth with medium/ light carbonation and is a little watery. Flavours of ripe fruit and malt most prodominant. Finish is slightly hoppy with a light bitter end.
