3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle in beer stein. An amber brew with fleeting head and aroma of fruit bread and a hint of banana. Broad malts dominate the taste with a bit of spice and smokiness on the palate. My first venture into the lighter side of the bock family.

Originally rated on 8/14/08. Didnt know this was a bock until i just looked it up. The body looked more like an APA or even a IPA with an orangish-copper colored body, ample carbonation, with a mid sized light tan head. Aroma of spicy hops, flavor was balanced between the hops and malts, a little sweet, with hints of berries. Overall a pretty good beer no matter what style it tries to be
