2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden brown color. Not much aroma. Small tan head. Not too much flavor going on in this one. A mild hopping with a musty malt flavor. Really kind of boring and uneventful. I was expecting more.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber in color, light tan small bubbly half inch thick head. Very appealing to look at. Smells of light floral hops and yeast. Start and middle are a little bit empty, but ohh the finish is so nice. Good fair amount of hops with a nice dry hop bite. Sip or drink it slow, its quite smooth with a nice hop bite. Drink it fast and watch out, the hop bite bites. Has a light body feel and leaves a dry hop tang in mouth and tongue.

On draught. Appearance: hazy, honey colored w/ a medium white head. It has a malty taste up front w/ a bit of a funky tart finish. Maybe grapefruit or lemon? unique, to be sure

I dig the Dead Guy. I nice amount of hops and enough malt to get this beer going in your nose before it begins playing with your tongue. Very easy drinking, a great quaffing beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Probably the blandest Bock I have tasted.I have grave doubts whether it should be even called by that name.Considering the complexity of the ingredients that the brewery says are in it this is a very simle ale.Pors nice with a moderate head, looks quite good but is rather boring.Nothing distinctive about it and not a lot of kick for a 6.6 ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In my opinion this is just a classic "beer". No muss and no fuss. Just a damn good tasting every day down home kinda beer. I could drink this beer every day.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Tart bitter flavour. Golden, reasonable from the pour. It had a cranky bitter hop finish, giving it a cheap & corn syrup personality. Best bitter flavour without finesse. WARNING: Don’t drink this as the last beer of the night. Wow betide thee that does.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
bleaugh. an utter steaming turd in a bottle. overcaramelly malt flavours wallow in a sickly stew of sweaty/cheesy/banana esters. a bit cardboardy - maybe oxidised. and the finish is just random bitterness for no good reason, a consolation prize for all the sweet thick cloying crap you have to endure to get there. no balance, beauty or delicacy of any kind here.

I got this one on a whim (i'm easily swayed by funky labels) and i honestly found it to be pure whatevery. Mediocrity in a bottle!
