3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle thanks to Matta. Autumn gold color with a quickly dissapearing off white head. Aroma is caramel, malt and nuts. Taste is malty all right but a bit dusty. Flavors are sweet, toasty and smooth with a mellow hop bite.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I found this beer in the back of a refrigerator at one of my accounts. I don’t exactly know this 22oz beers age, I’m guessing Spring 2004?
Pours a rich mahogany colored body and a fluffy cream colored head. The aroma and flavor are largely malty, with big sweet fruity notes of plum, apple, pear, orange, and even some more intense flavors of raisins. I pull huge suggestions honey and molasses. There is definitely a smoky, tastiness to this bock. The body is full and smooth…It’s a really nicely balanced brew!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a very pretty deep gold with a good amount of fizz, leading to a big white head that drops quickly to a moderate ring. nose is primarily Munich malt-a sort of sweetish, lightly toasty smell. beer’s taste is great-the sweetness in the nose is suprisingly not cloying, and some spicy hops push through on the finish. drinks very smooth.

Pale copper colored with very little head. Rich malty flavor, tastes slightly sweet, with light hops to balance. Decent body with a tingly, crisp mouthfeel. Not a bad bock.

Copper colored with little head. Slightly floral aroma with a hint of sweet malt. Rich malty flavor, tastes like honey nectar, with a nice, light hoppy balance. Syrupy body with a tingly, crisp mouthfeel. Decent offering.

nice sweet malt smell; red-amber color with a thin but long-lasting head; the taste is slightly sweet with a hint of lemon and just a bit of bitterness in the finish

It had those slight sweet overtones, nice body for a lager and a clean balanced taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a nice, malty spring lager. Good crisp beer and not too thin on the palate. Pilsener-like.
