Smells like an amplified Mexican Pale Lager. Color is pale orange and the beer appears to be very fizzy. Head is foamy and slightly off-white – borderline creamy, with some intense lacing. When the beer first touches the lips, the malts hit you right away. Very distinct taste - I’ll always be able to identify this one in a blind taste test. Malts give this blonde concoction a lot of wallop. The balance tends to lean more toward the aggressive malts while the hops help to elevate the bitterness. Some background vanilla and cedar elements hint at mellowing the beer, but they can’t make it seem less like what it is in my opinion: an Imperial Mexican Pale Lager. Surprisingly unique; definitely interesting.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2005
I agree with RateBeer’s style assessment - Although it calls itself a blonde bock, it is a European strong lager. Golden with a large bubbly head, it smells of sweet grasses with an herbal hoppiness. The taste is a grainy malt with little of the sweetness associated with a bock. There’s a good snappy hop finish, quite crisp. This is a decent drink.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden colour. Big, foamy, lacey head. Flowery, sweet and malty aroma. Sweet, hoppy, slightly grassy taste. Pretty hop-bitter finiish. Mediumbodied with a smooth mouthfeel. This beer pair a nice hopbitterness with a good dose of malty sweetness. Good balance. Nice.

noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Nice golden color with bubbles galore making a solid cream head. Full flavor, nice beer taste with bittersweet aftertaste, leaving only the faintest hint of hops. Good bock, typical of these end-of-season beers with a richness that comes from fully ripe barley. Enjoyable alone, not timid with food.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2004
Very average strong lager. Aroma has a slight maltyness. Flavor is hoppy and bitter. Palate is thin and watery.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Pale yellow with white head and active carbonation. Has a sour fruity aroma that is lightly malted and a bit cidery with a european hop bitterness. A little too tangy as it doesn’t let much else come into the flavor. Sour cidery finish.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Musky and alcoholic, grassy and herbal. Light rubbery malt, hops. Medium dark amber clear with thin foamy white head. Medium watery body with medium-light carbonation. Mild sweet malts to start, light acidity. Fruity grassy hops in finish, with mild bitter. After is lightly sweet with beany taste. Mild chalky bitterness.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2004
An orange beer with a collapsing white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol as well as oranges. The flavor is of metal and alcohol with a dry finish. It is easy to tell, that this is a strong beer.

Golden color with a white head. The taste is sweet and light malty. Has light metallic notes. Kind of boring.

Aroma of weak hops, some fruityness. Golden body, small white head. Slight bitter, but some harsh sweetness.
