3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml brown returnable bottle, no apparent best by date.
Pours a nice, rich gold. It is pretty clear with a very nice deepness and a foamy white head that fizzes away with little lacing.
Smells like... a bock, no where in the ingredients does it list wheat. It has a slight nutiness with noble hops and a doughy breadiness.
The taste follows, a robust lager, with more hops than the typical German lager. It has a nice roasty bread taste that lingers and lingers and a mild sweet malt flavor.
It is a decent bock, hard to find though.
