3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of my sister-in-law when she came back from Wisconsin. Thanks!
A: Bubble-speckled brown with a slight translucence. Aggressive pour yields a dying head - all the carbonation remains in the body.
N: Malty bread. Some prune flavors in a Belgian vein. Brown sugar. Some banana and clove. This is really clean and tidy.
T: Very, very light. Biscuit and clove. There’s some earth and a balancing bitterness from the hops. Some prune sweetness shows up after it warms. Quite the let down after the delicate flavor the nose.
M: Crisp and clean. This has a great sit back and relax vibe.
O: I am more than willing to highly rate lagers, but this one falls a bit short of the mark. Looking for more than what I got, and I do understand that it doesn’t need to be a malt bomb. Still decent in a pinch, if you need it.

Not the biggest fan of bocks but its not bad. Looks good and dark in the glass and is easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear brown in color... Aroma of nuts, caramel, toffee, molasses... Flavor is nutty, light tobacco notes, plum... Solid bock, but not terribly exciting

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to glass. A deep, clear caramel color with a thick off white head. Malt sweetness, with a little roasted hint in the aroma (with a little metallic?). Medium carbonation. A malty, yeasty sweetness. It mellows a little as it warms.

Bottle. Cherry, toffee malt and astringent aroma. Copper with nice head. Sweet toffee malt flavor. Mild astringent finish. Pretty good but not much malt flavor.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Look: pours a light brown. Maybe a deep ruby. Pours clear with a white head that fades quickly. No lacing on the rim.
Smell: very sweet malty aroma. Banana.
Taste: heavy malt. Bready flavor. Slight bitterness on the back.
Feel: almost feels like a soda. Heavy carbonation. Foams every time you tilt the glass back and forth.
Overall: not my style of beer. But ok. Nothing wrong with it just not my style.
First drank: home 7/13/14
