ruby, bubbly tan head, sweet malt aroma with a strange but familuar twist, lots of rich sweet malt flavor that turns to dry as it warms, good but undecisive

Clear amber with minimal head. Aroma is very sweet – rock candy and caramel. Taste is sweet near the point of cloying. Some caramel. Essentially no bitterness. Fairly light bodied.

very dissapointing bock. Faint malty aroma. Little to no taste, just a harsh bitter finish.

deep amber color, no head. It’s pretty, but it’s a pretty poor bock. Very bland, lager like. Served way to cold.

This was listed as ’Gold Medal Bock’ and I am assuming they are one and the same. It is a very thick strong beer, probably a bit too strong for me.
