2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I think I’d have to completely turn the bottle over from the begining of the pour to get a head like in the above picture. Oh, and the diamond pattern and lettering on my bottle is green, not red. Looking closer at the picture, it says "Ur-Bock" and this one has "Mai Bock" which would likely explain that, but this bottle days say "ur bock" on the back, so we’re good.
Pours a light amber with a little head and no lace.
Scent is malt but faint; typical for the style only weak.
Everything else is typical for the style so I’ll stop here. The exception is that it has a really pronounced mineral mouthfell that’s very nice, IMO.
Overall, try it if you’re really into Bocks, but otherwise it’s nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a sraw/gold color with a very small white head, nothing like the picture in the upper-left corner. Light malt aroma, slightly sweet with a fruity smell. Taste was very light, with a nice sweetness and almost a fruit taste like apples. Ok brew, but nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is malty, fruity, and with hints of anise. Head has a fine bead, but fades very fast. Pale gold color, too pale for a pale bock. FLavor is malty, again with hints of anise. Little hop character, little fruit as well. Palate seems a bit thin for the style.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy straw color,very small head that faded fast.malty semi sweet aroma with a hint of Green olives.Very malty taste that was medium sweet with a faint presence of hops and mild amount of alcohol coming through but not in the over powering sense.the after taste is sweet malt with a slight bitterness to it but that fades quickly to leave a sweet taste in the back of the pallate.Not exactly what i feel a bock should be,but it is an ok brew and worth trying.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy brownish gold. Creamy long lasting whitish head. Rich, malty nose. Sweet. Creamy sweetened bliss! Not a lot of complexity on this but it does taste good and is very refreshing. Finishes with little aftertaste but does leave a sugary hint on the tongue. Not bad of only $2!
