3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Part of the 12 pack Beer Camp series. Total Wine in Boca Raton. Drank at home in a snifter. Pours a cloudy orange-light brown with a mild fluffy head. Aroma is hoppy with pine and spruce, a light wheat/grain aroma, and citrus. The taste is similar with a citrus profile, slight bitter pineyness, and a malty backbone with a hint of rye. Slight bitter finish. Moderate carb and a medium to light body.

I enjoy rye in beer because I think it adds a depth and spice that is hard to find elsewhere. With this brew the rye added a nice alternative to the regular sweet malty bock that is all too common. You get the initial caramel malt profile with a good helping of earthy hops but the middle gets all spicy and rustic from the rye. An interesting twist.

Can (~1 year old). Mildly hoppy nose. Surprising hop character; virtually no rye notes. A mild caramel, raisin sweetness. Overall meh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Amber orange. Strong malty, sort of huskey, grainy, rye. Red caramels, herbs. Quite full bodied, bit sweet malty, but with a bitter dry clean finish. Old leaves, huskey malty. clean. flavourful. But sort of .. harsh. Strange one. Might be old.. the transport.. something, but feels really mediocre, or even sub that. A herb harsh- hoppy bock.

35,5 cl bottle @ lusikka, canned 03.05.14
Aroma has strong caramel tones, some toffee and fruity hops. Flavour has somewhat aggressive hops with grapefruit, some caramel, sweet malty tones and hints of toffee. Finishes with mint and menthol. Sweet and very American. No signs of bock here, perhaps some maltyness typical to the style though.
