650 ml bottle from Sprout market. Pours a hazy gold color with a medium white head that has great retention. The aroma was very mild and largely indistinct with some grains and breads. The taste was subtle with grains, breads, cooked vegetables and piney/spicy hops. The palate was medium with lively carbonation. Finished long and dry with lingering spicy hops. Overall: meh

Pours a clear golden orange with a medium white head. Aromas of hops and sweet malt. This is actually a rather tasty, smooth, brew. It is also highly session-able for me. Tastes of a nice sweet malt, bitter hops and a little citrus-y. Solid.

Mediocre, hopped up malty lager. It’s pretty much exactly what you think it would be with nothing interesting going on. Flowery hop bock.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, sparkling, golden-yellow, with medium-sized head. Not much to the aroma, really--some grass, some floral elements, but pretty muted. The flavor is a combination of hops with the traditional dry malt flavor of the bock--kind of an odd mixture, actually. It’s kind of like a light IPA or something, with a stronger underlying sweetness than one might usually find in that style. Not sure this is an entirely successful experiment, but worth trying.
