Thoroughly surprised by this one. Didn’t know what to expect from a "Bock", as German-sounding beers are more "miss" than "hit IMO. This was a great ale, with just the right amount of sweetness. Couldn’t believe it was 8.3%.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’ve had this a few times, time to review.
Golden with a persistent sheet of white foam and a brilliant clarity. Smells malty, sweet and light bread, tea, cola, candied pecans, touch of german yeast character, a touch of freshly cut alfalfa and a hint of rose. Flavor is floral: malts, slight oxidation, a bit of bread and caramel. There is a ton of flower character in here for me with rose hips, a little bit of hibiscus and orange peel likeness in here. I like the complexity of the flavor, delicate as it is. Medium bodied with limited carb and an almost dry finish. Nice beer, glad how this one has evolved.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep honey in color, moderate white foamy head, spotty lacing.   Big heavy sweet grassy nose, slight melon and honey.   Very bready and grassy on the tongue.   Smooth, surprised this is 8.3%.   Seems
to have held up over these years.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A bit more dusty and dry grasses on the finish, but it remains somewhat sweet.   I thought this would be heavy and cloying, but nope.   Great balance!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a thick foamy patch of head which eventually retreated to reveal a sparkling golden blonde bock. In the nose, there is a mild balance between grassy hops and grained malts that are typical of this particular style. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side with a bold bitter finish. Notes of sweet high quality malt that could pass as European while also having a bread or grain like taste. The hops involved are moderate and seem to throw the flavor a little off balance compared to the aroma this beer gave off, but they are surely interesting.
