COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prost means "cheers" in German- a gesture of friendship and an enjoyment of the moment. Our Maibock style lager is brewed just like the celebratory beer traditionally served at the May festivals: rich and malty, with slightly spicy notes from the Hallertau and Tettnang hops. ALC 7.3% BY VOL and 26 bitterness units.

Amber colored pour with a tall khaki head. Sweet malty nose, grapes, and floral hops. A little bit of grass, apple, and toasted bread. A little watery. The flavor is kind of bland as well. Sweet bread, some toffee, grapes, and floral hops. Light apple, toast, and a grassy finish.

tightslice (381) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle from Trader Joe’s in San Carlos, CA. Pours an autumn amber. Aroma is malts, light molasses, toffee, caramel, some slight bourbon booze. Taste is similar with a nice even finish. Much better than expected, especially for the price.

Bottle to glass. Clear Sunburst orange with of white head. Fresh bread aroma with a small floral spring note. Sweet medium body doughy with a dry finish. Good beer for the price. Trader joes beer make cheap better but with some flare.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a copper color with a large creamy beige head. Malty nose hints at caramel and biscuit. Flavor matches nose, with some residual sweetness and toasted nuts flavor. Spicy hops in finish balance this nicely. Good flavor at a decent price. $6.99 per six-pack.

First time trying this beer and was impressed. For the style, thought it did a good job with hop balance and at 7.3 apv seems like a great buy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BucannonXC5 (1062) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 14, 2015
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Firestone pint glass From: Trader Joe’s in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif. Price: $1.00 Purchased: April 3, 2015 Consumed: April 9, 2015 Misc.: Best consumed before July 18, 2015 at 1:33 p.m. Poured a caramel, auburn, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki-white, frothy head, which dissipated almost immediately. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. No lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.25) Smelled red apple, plum, caramel, roasty nuts, honey and faint menthol. (Smell - 3.63) Tasted kind of close to the smell, maybe slightly better. Got caramel, toffee, honey, roasty malts, nuts, metallic notes, plum, dark apple and sugary molasses. (Taste - 3.63) Medium body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, nutty finish. Doesn’t taste anywhere near the 7.3 pct. ABV. (Feel - 3.75) This was an OK beer and, really for the price, a good deal. I’d probably get a sixer of this for the value. (Overall - 3.75) 3.65 83 B

jamesewelch (196) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 29, 2015
From 12oz bottle, Trader Joe’s, about $6-7 for 6-pack, poured into tulip glass

Aroma: strong malt aroma, light toast, subtle spicy hops

Appearance: amber color, crystal clear liquid, white head

Taste: Very rich, heavy sweet, very light bitter spicy hops

Palate: medium body, average carbonation, smooth, finish is somewhat harsh

Overall: Not a bad bock, but the finish throws it off for me. It finishes somewhat astringent or harsh. The rich malty sweetness is great and the body is great. It’s just the lingering finish which is somewhat strange and spoils the rest of the enjoyment of this malty beer.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A sweet toffee nose. A light nose of toast, leaves, some light sweet toffee. Sweet, easy, some toast and citrus. Light, spicy. Lemons. Decent.

Pours a clear amber-rust orange. Has a faint malt, camarel and light fruit aroma. A malty taste with caramel, pine, and some fruits. A dry grain and lightly sour fruit aftertaste.
