3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Dan Journal #345. Tasted 5/3/10. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a golden hue. Brainy white head. Aromas of green grassy grains and a touch of honey. Medium bodied and very smooth. Mild effervescence and a dry finish. More of an earthy honey note, not as sweet but still noticeable. Finishes dry and tart with a lingering subtle bitterness. I’m not too sure if that’s from the honey or the faint hops. Either way it really rounds out the palate. Easy and sessionable with a full rounder palate.

A nice solid drinker. Standard nose. Light appearance and nice taste. I’m not so sure what to add on this one. Poured a nice full head which went away. Very balanced and nice although light on flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange, thin white head. Smells beery. You know what I mean - it smells like beer. Flavor is surprisingly crisp, with a touch of honey. Some caramel and toast, as well. Not bad, crisp and easy to drink. Thanks to lithy for this one!

Clear golden amber with a thin white head with some foamy lacing. Aroma of honey, corn flakes, light toffee, toasted malt and stale socks. Taste of mild honey, grains, toasted malt, light fruit and more corn. Pass.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with Ughsmash. Pours a clear gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left bits of lace. Mild aroma of malt with a few notes of grassy hops in the nose as well. The flavor is malt with just a bit of honey sweetness and some very mild grassy hops at the finish. Very easy going down. This is a nice enjoyable bock beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow pour, with a frothy white head. This one has a smooth macro-brew type of body, with a slightly sweet finish. Along with the finish come a flat texture, which really hurts the score for this one.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Much lighter than I expected for a bock. Not bad but I was definitely expecting more. Couldn’t taste much honey. Seemed pretty regular.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear gold color with a finger-thick white head and visible carbonation. Aroma of sweet malts, honey, straw, grains, and the faintest of hops. Flavor is also big on honey and sweet malts, with some grains and hops, sugar and grass. Light-bodied, with a good amount of carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Dry and sweet. Not bad, but certainly overshadowed by a few other things I tried at the brewery.
