3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark, clear ruby color with a foamy off white head. Slight metallic aroma with hints of malt and grains. Strong roasted malt flavors with a slightly bitter finish and a minimal aftertaste . Medium bodied and finishes a little chalky and very smooth. Very enjoyable beer, but not the best.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The body has good clarity and a dark brownish color with a nice big fluffy head on top. The head is white in color and doesn’t hang out for long. Before it settles down to just a wispy thin layer it does make a few lace rings on the glass. Its aroma is full of sweet malt and dark bready notes, The flavor has a sweet and bready character with caramel notes, soft pretzel, and light nutty notes. The finish adds some mild hop notes for balance and a little dryness. Still overall it finishes on the sweet side. On the palate it has a good medium to full body with nice active carbonation and a smooth slick texture.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
