2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a browner ice tea with a foamy head, lowly carbonated. Aroma is an old beer depot; some caramelness, some banana, some bubblegum, some earthy malt. Taste is caramelly malt without any sweetness, banana. Somewhere in the mix between a brown and a bock; more fruity than a brown but without the sweetness of a bock, especially a dunkler. I know uff-da, and sir, you are no uff-da.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a near clear dark purple/plum with sticky white head lacing. Nose has a little fuesel alcohol and a fake sweetness - like that of a grape popsicle. Flavor is malty and a bit nutty. Big carbonation and chew body. Nothing really wrong here, but not one of my faves from NG.

Always happy to try a new New Glarus brew. Pours a nice reddish-brown with hardly any head. Nose of light syrupy sweetness and light roastiness. Roast comes through more in the flavor. Very light and tasty.

Clear brown with a thick off-white head. Good malt aroma. Wonderful malt flavor, the sweetness lingers, not cloying. medium body. A Wisconsin "Not Bad"

Pours a cooper red with a nice sized light tan head. Nose is caramel and malt. Nice and creamy on the palate , the flavor is is rich with malt and caramel. No bitterness on the finish. Pairs well with roast beef on rye with chips and a pickle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle; pours dark roasty brown and clear with trace light tan head; dry chocolate, ashy malt, light orange too; drinks very dry with a faint sweet, almost roasty note; crisp finish and lagery sweetness; pretty bland and boring to me; fairly thin and flavorless for a New Glarus brew

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice chocolate-brown color with mid-sized, creamy head that dissipates rather rapidly. Some caramel and nut flavors present. Not a bad beer, but not one of New Glarus’ best.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color, nice lacing. Aroma is caramel and yeast, flavor is sweet, caramel malt with a doughy finish. Medium palate. Bocks aren’t my favorite style, but this is very drinkable.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid, traditional bock beer. Served with a great, foamy, frothy, sudsy, light tan head that lasts and lots of lace. Color is a clear, dark garnet. Aroma is malt, caramel, toffee and just a hint of molasses. Flavor’s the same and has the sweetness perfectly balanced. Body is just what it should be, ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor and of short to medium length. This is quitessential bock beer. Session.
