On tap. Poured golden to light amber. Smelled malty, but only faintly so. Some bready, malty flavors with a touch of grain and caramel. Not what I expect in a bock at all. Disappointing.

Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is a dry bready malt with a nice pumpernickel. Flavor is again a dry bready malt with some dark bread notes. Nothing in wowing me here but it’s still a decent bock on the very dry and bready side.

Aroma is pale malts, light citrus and earthy notes. The flavor is pale malts, light fruit/citrus, bread and a mildly dry/slightly sour/tart finish.

More golden than the amber I was expecting. Good head and really crisp malt taste. A fine beer.

Swing-top. Pours a clear golden color with a fair head and spotty lacing. Aroma of grass, bit of malt and spice. Taste of malt sweetness, grass and spice. Nice bitterness and afairly clean finish. Moderate body, crisp and smooth. Decent beer for the style.

500ml Bottle: Aroma is grassy hops, nice hellertau notes, and a very light malt notes. Appearance is a golden pour with a large white head that diminishes quickly. Taste is got some nice malt characteristics and the grassy hop notes. Really well balanced and rather tasty. Overall, I like it. Cheers!

eaglefan538 (2886) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pour was deep golden to amber with a nice head. Aroma of grains and pils malts and grass. Flavor followed with some pleasant lighter fruits, yet clean overall. Honey and earthiness too. Mouthfeel fairly full. Nice one.

Swingtop from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours orange tinged gold with a white head. Aroma is bready, seems a bit grapey, with some nice earth/spice. Med body or nearly. Flavor is earthy, spicy, toasty bready, with for me a bit of grape. Which makes it very pleasant to me. Not really dry, but balanced enough to make the malt pleasant. I’m likin’ it.

DYCSoccer17 (3309) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
500ml bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has light cracker and light bready malts. Somewhat metallic, too. Transparent brilliant golden body with a large, strong, frothy head present. Beautiful. Starts with a fairly sweet, chewy, Graham cracker maltiness. Medium sweetness late. Super clean throughout. Light toastiness, too.

popery (1397) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Swing-top. Pours a pale, bright gold. Very good clarity, which is super important to me. Small to medium white head. Fades rather quickly, leaving just a bit of lacing. Aroma has some rich pilsner malt sweetness, mild grassy hops and some mineral character. Little bit of apple cider. Pears, very light lemons, mild floral note. It’s a clean bock with a bit more sweetness than appley sweetness than expected. The taste has more of the same sweet pilsner malt flavor with that sweet apple note. It finishes drier than I would have guessed based on the aroma. Simple sugar. Mild grass hops, again. Mild bitterness in the finish, which could stand to be a bit cleaner. Sweet and simple breadiness. Relatively low carbonation. Round mouthfeel, almost a bit much given the lack of complexity. Fun to see a one-off from Paulaner in the US, but it’s still just a decent bock. I can’t complain. I’d love to see more German specials around.

4oz taster at Westover Beer Garden. Gold with foamy white head. Grassy, with grains and malt. Grassiness lends a somewhat bitter and offputting nature.
