2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Dark reddish brown with a beige hea..... hey, where did it go? Faint aromas of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough being sniffed through a tiny hole in the tube. Sweet nutty doughy flavor, as expected. No hops, thin body, dry finish, easy to drink but doesn’t taste like much. Another pseudo bock that doesn’t do to much, but will be popular because it goes down like water and looks like a decent beer. Oh well.

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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from mix 12 pack. Clear brown in color no much retention. Light caramel malt in nose not much else. Flavor is mildly sweet. Real mild. Caramel, biscuit and just a hint of hops. Texture is lightly creamy. Well over all; not real bad. One of the better brews in the 12 pack, whatever that is saying. Bit bland and forgettable.
