COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leinenkugel 1888 Bock, a luscious brew, originally created to serve lumberjacks, will be available for all who want to try its excellent boutique of Caramel, Pale and two-row Chocolate malts. Cluster hops add a touch of citrus character and when combined with Munich malts and a 20- to 25-day cold lagering process, you have a truly timeless beer.

Dark amber. Slight malty aroma. Flavor is that of malt. Almost no hop prescence. Pretty weak for a Bock.

Beerandhockey8 (196) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Nose is caramel, malt, light hop. Taste is bitter, medium bodied. Love the concept here, sad to see it go. Rated from notes taken over a year ago.

burg326 (3210) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured a clear amber color with aromas of roast, caramel, and some hops, Flavors follow suit, roast and caramel are the main focus, light bitterness in the aftertaste.

hotstuff (3912) - Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2013
Backlog rating 1-10-2009 (Bottle) Label says 5.2% ABV. This beer pours a medium sized tan semi-fizzy head with poor retention, transparent body, visible carbonation, one ring of lacing, and an orange hue with a red tint. The Aroma is malty, caramel, hoppy and roasty. The Taste mimics the Aroma. The Palate is tingly and this is a light-medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer is quaffable, but not true to style.

Lemke10 (680) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2013
This spring seasonal beer is fairly dark in color as is normal with bock beers and has a fairly inviting smell. It does come with a rather strong bitter taste. Not quite to the point that an IPA does but still bitter. Not the best bock beer on the market but for a local Wisconsin $6/6pack it certainly is worth a try.

dlbeer (660) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Tap. Red color with thick white head. Sweet caramel, roasty aroma. Tastes of roasted malts with a little sweetness. Light bitter finish. Below average carbonation. Decent bock.

Dark brown color, nice head. Not alot for the nose to use. It seems slightly watered down. If it were slightly thicker or deeper in taste it would be a hands down fave. It is seasonal so i definitely recommend grabbing a sixer when its out.

12 oz bottle. Pours copper in color. Taste is kinda of bland with a slight hint of caramel. A fairly weak Bock.
