UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 12 oz bottle. One of the best aromas I have smelled from a beer in years. Pours a deep orange. Notes of fruit here. Grains and grassy notes present. Finish is of caramel, sweet malt, toasted bread,. True to the Bock category.

Draft at Gingerman. Deep orange pour. Rich malty palate, slightly bitter finish. Flavors of orange, caramel, ripe berries. Not bad.

From a 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 3208020312. The pour is medium amber with a delightfully full head. It is not dark enough for a Dunkler Bock though. I would put it closer to Helles. The aroma is of grains and malts with little sweetness. The body is pretty good and a little better than medium. The taste clearly emulates the German bock style with a full, creamy maltiness but an astringent bitterness on the end. Not too bad.

12oz bottle in a dimpled mug. Pours copper with a thick, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel and bread like malts with a little bit of floral and bitter hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

Pours a clear golden amber. Smells lightly of bread, nuts. Taste is medium-mild sweet with a small note of hop finish

Pours a dark golden color. Smell is a bit malty. Taste is malts and caramel up front, some hop bitterness at the finish. Overall an easy drinking and pretty good beer.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2012
Enjoyable spring bock which is an easy drinker with a nice sweet malt kick to begin with and ends with a bit of a bitter yeasty backdrop which is either a flavor hop or some other spicey peppery attribute from the yeast. Not bad.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bottled 1.27.12. Pours dark orange and clear with a small beige head that leaves some blebby lacing. Aromas of grass, iris and floral notes, and orange and spices. The flavor is grass and sweet fruity malt, berry, and raisin, with a lightly bitter finish. Alright. [1012]

Orange-brown, malty, bitter, hoppy. Good flavor with a bit of a light, bitter springy linger afterwards. Yes, I realize this is all nonsense.

blipp (5679) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2012
Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Malty grainy aroma, with some light sweetness. The flavor has this weird wet-dog thing going on, with some weird sweetness and light hops. Not that good.
