Draft at International Beer Garten (Lutz, FL). Pours a reddish brown color with a dense tan head that leaves excellent lacing along the glass. Somewhat mild aroma of roasted caramel malt. Good flavor, smooth and easy to drink yet tasty. Roasted nut and caramel flavors with a fair amount of hop bitterness in the finish.

Clear reddish chestnut color with an inch of dense bone colored head. Aroma is caramel with a bit of pumpernickel. Taste is the same with grainy astringency to a bit of an extreme that causes a medicinal finish. $2/12oz

Bottle. Whow, this is great. I think this is suppose to be a seasonal beer but I believe they should make it all the time. It has a nice dark amber color. Nice lace and head. Good aroma and man, the flavor is nice and malty , with good balane. Now I remember why I love dark german style beers.

nick76 (4253) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2010 The aroma is sweet and has brown sugar and malt with soapy hops to balance. The appearance is deep amber with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with both the bread like malt and the soapy hops and has a somewhat cardboard finish. The palate is just right for the style. Overall a well made Bock but not outstanding.

BREWMUSKCLES (2288) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2010
bitter taste of dishwater hops enhanced with the tree bark flavor and spice characteristic that really makes this quite a decent brew indeed. a touch sweet and darkly as well as lightly fruity this beer seems a shock to be a bock. light and astringent seems the older brewers still remember what to do. had to buy another bottle to make sure this was for real!

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear brown with a thin tan head. Light and fruity aroma with some hints of caramel, roasted malts, and cocoa. Bitter roasted flavors at the start. Lots of roasted and nearly burnt malts over top of a rather bitter and peppery hop flavor. Some very mild sweetness moves around the palate as well, but mainly you get the roasted malts and hops. Bitter and crisp aftertaste with a lingering and rather dry bitter finish.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2010
pours copper/burgundy, white head. aroma is hoppy, mild malty- toasted scent, some grassy notes. flavor, light hoppy mouthfeel, not an intense toasted malts palate but one that adds a nice malty profile coupled with a modest touch of caramel, pale malts and hints of fruits. A mild lingering bitterness in the finish. Ends a little thin compared to other German Bock.

Drake (8779) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine in Richmond, VA. Pours a dark strawberry red color with a medium frothy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Nutty aroma with leafy hops and some caramel notes. Taste is caramel, nutty notes, hoppy finish. A bit of a sweaty, grainy note. Medium bodied.

joeyplush (647) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Pour looks like a darker version of Yuengling Lager - same red/orangeish hue but in a richer dark color. Head starts off nicely - thick and off-white, but dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is bread malt and dough. Taste is a little spicy but not very rich - a bit watered down. Overall tastes cheap and mass produced.

As a Philadelphian, when I walk into beer store and see a Yuengling that I had never before tried, I can hardly resist the purchase. And while my expectations were not enormously high, I still knew I had to have it. Anyway, the point of the matter is that this beer far surpassed my expectations. It pours a clear brownish color with a small white head. The aroma was one of the weak points with a kind of cheap lager feel to it, but fortunately the taste compensated for it. Heavy bready feel to it. Not at all watery. Some German hops feel to it as well. Easy to drink, cheap, and enough flavour to satisfy. I hope Yuengling releases more new beers (and not just the standard micro fare, but rather an assorted, but quality macrofare).
