Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy off white head that leaves decent spotty lacing. The aroma is a bready malt with caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a light roast malt with caramel, raisin and brown sugar. Easy to drink with a spicy finish. A good Belgian from MBC.

[Bottle] Pours a light amber color without much head. Grains, bread and light nutmeg in the nose. Taste is of caramel malts, Belgian yeast, assorted spices and some toffee. Not particularly well balanced. Thin and watery overall. Dry finish. Fleeting hints that this beer is Belgian inspired, but in the end it reminded me more of a Ziegenbock.

Bought a six pack on recommendation. From my notes, I didn’t really enjoy this beer at all.

Light, malty flavor, but still very watery. Light finish. Hints of yeasty sweetness that rolls into a slow finish. Mild and lacking in the spices that are advertised in the description. Meh.

Clear amber with lacy whitish head. Smells of caramel malt and bread. Tastes like bready and caramel malts with a hint of hops. Tastes more like an oktoberfest than anything Belgian I can think of. Somewhat watery, but not too much so. Not too bad. Could make a decent session beer.

A- Pours a transparent amber colored body with thick foamy off-white head. Head subsides quickly and becomes very thin. Decent retention. Lots of lacing left behind in the glass. Pale bock. Doesn’t look like a bock or a blonde maibock...has a color similar to dead guy but this one is one dimensional and completely transparent. S- not to much to pick up. Some grainy malt and hints of hops. Rather boring. T- not too much here either. The big taste is the malt. Tastes similar to a bland cereal. Hints of hops pop up but not too much. Finish is clean and dry. P- Medium carbonation and very watery. O- This beats a macro anyday but is rather bland. Its quite drinkable but not enjoyable. Very unoffensive and there’s nothing to hate about it. Not sure what style this would fall under. Not belgian-not bock either. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-05-2007 15:13:30

Tasty! Great head, good color, and a malty, biscuity, savory flavor that really stayed with me. The ’herbs and spices’ on the label are a faint presence, just enough to enhance the natural excellence of this beer. Reasonably full-bodied taste, but the finish was somewhat short and I would have liked just a touch more carbonation.
