3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the 2005 Great Taste of the Midwest: Clear copper pour is covered with a thin white head. Sweet, fresh, authentic bocky German malty aroma. Starts with some sweet caramel and sticky malt with a nice European hoppy balance. A very drinkable, well-done beer.

Guest tap at the Back Road open house:
Boy am I glad I didn’t make a special trip to Munster for this. Without a doubt this is the worse beer ever brewed by FFF. Sweet and malty, no hops, no brightness, no character. Coy and sticky with massive honey overtones. I tried a couple samples to see if it would warm up to me, never happened. Oh well, every brewery has it mistakes.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at FFF: Light golden brown and somewhat thin, which I never thought I’d say about a 3F brew. Mild sweet and nutty malt flavor with a soft touch of hops and a hint of apples. Kind of lazy on the bock side.

Sampled at the Great Taste of the Midwest 2005. This poured a dark orange. The aroma is oranges and caramel. The is bready with some light toast and nuts. Not much else going on in this hoopy bock.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of finely sized mostly diminishing off-white colored bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body contained very soft carbonation, was transparent and orange brown in color. Its aroma contained malty bock notes. Its mouth feel is initially slightly tingly with a lingering tingly aftertaste. Its flavor contained sweet malty bock notes. An above average brew.

Pretty true to style Bock. Reminded me of the Victory Hellerbock. Sweet with just enough bitterness. Felt a little alcoholic. Silky body, plenty there. Typical lager tastes. Not too shabby.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at GTMW. This beer pours to a hazy copper body with no head. The aroma is sweet with a light silage and corn. The flavor is good but not exciting. The palate is creamy and light. This is probably the least exciting beer that I had at the fest.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft, at 3F’s. Pours deep orange with brown in the middle. Thin head. Taste is very grainy, a bit bready, even yeasty. Not a lot of hops, which is a surprise for a Floyds beer. Just a bit load of grainy malts without much roast in them, but a bit of orange taste toward the end. Guess I’ll need to try another when the brewpub finally opens and they can serve it in a real glass.
