microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Clear amber with virtually no head. An aroma of lime candy and a touch sweet and malty. A malty and sweet flavor.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Brown with a hint of red. Smells like candy. Not much flavor. Flat regardless of many bubbles.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2003 Reddish brown appearance. Slightly malty aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet and crisp. Fairly one dimensional. Palate is rather thin. Overall decent and much better than BMC swill. Good way to get swill drinkers to try a "dark" beer.

MicroRob (42) - Kelowna, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 12, 2003
Better on tap than from the bottle. A good standby when in Texas and all there is on tap is Coors Light and Bud. Lacking hops but very drinkable beer.

UNCCTF (477) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Clear dark brown coloring with a decent tan head. Aroma and flavor both dominated by malts, with little to no hop presence. I liked this one a lot better than I expected to, and I would drink it again. It's good, yet not overpowering.

My favority Bock beer. Best when from the tap. Can be a bit heavy with medium malt flavor. One of several fine Spoetzl brews.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 21, 2003
Nice dark amber. Decent head. Mild malt flavor. OK, so it isn't the world's best bock. It is a good session beer, and a good introduction into the world beyond pale American lagers (I know-it was mine a couple of decades ago, when it was a bit harder to find).

pwyman (71) - Hubert, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2003
Medium amber to light red color. Mild fruity flavor and aroma. Not as great as was being passed around the bar.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2003
This one poured a straight amber color with a decent sized head,, white and frothy in nature that made valiant attempts to lace the pint glass. The aroma is not attractive by any means. Stale malty and wheatiness, combined with a cardoboard wetness dominate...very filthy smelling. The taste is much of the same. Weak metallic and watery palate, some malts, but a dominating nastiness that almost has hints of old wheat and grains. Mouthfeel is watery and dry...little flavor or redeeming qualities to make this any more than an average domestic buy. Slight bittering dryness...eh...thats it.
