3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Brewpub. Poured a cloudy reddish amber with a thin white head. The aroma is malt and a little yeast. The flavour is moderate to weak sweet with a smooth banana malt palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A highly unusual Bock. In fact I’m not sure its a Bock at all, but I did like it a lot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at The Fiddler. Pours hazy amber brown with a tan head. Aroma of dough, nuts, yeast, light herbs and a little caramel. Flavour is light moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It’s really a very weird take on a bock beer, but at the same time not too bad. Definite improvement on last year’s recipe.

Pint at the brewpub.
Thin white head. Low carbonation. Just talked to Erik the manager of the Fiddler and they changed the yeast and tweaked the recipe. Good job. Last years was pretty bland. Thus is better but needs more carbonation imo. There are better bocks out there
