2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a clear yellowish-orange with a short white head.
The nose was malty with grassy hops.
Tasted of german hops with a light maltness. Lacked deepth.
Not a huge fan of the style, but the beer overall wasn’t much to comment on. It wasn’t horrible, but I doubt i would order it again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear golden orange pour with a lively white head and medium to low carbonation in the body. The nose is gassy hops with hints of orangepeel, resin, cereal grain, and a faint caramel malt. The flavor is juicy citrus fruit (mandarin, sweet grapefruit, lemon) with hints of beady dough and caramel. The hop character is grassy and almost perfume like. The palate is medium bodied with low carbonation, making for a very smooth and slippery texture. The finish is dry and vegetative. Not bad at all.

A decent bock, the beer comes across as malty but with a very solid hop presence and bitterness. Pretty good, solid, nothing too crazy.
