3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Worth waiting for.
Knock a wall out in Pottsville and add another bottling line.
They should be brewing this full time.
A malt taste, pouring a dark caramel color.
A real nice touch with that retro goat label.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A decent, solid bock. Fruity, floral, grassy and a bit malty in the nose. Very nice dark orange, amber. Minimal head and lacing though. Palate is sweet and malty, with caramel and some spiciness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours amber/brown, with an off white head. Aroma is a little weird. Grain and malt, but something else odd. Flavor is malt, grain and some caramel.

On tap at the Colonial Downs Rhythm, Bets and Brews Festival on 06/20/2009 as Yuengling Spring Bock. Clear copper amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Sweet toasty and caramel aroma. Caramel, and grainy flavor with light fruity and grassy notes. Medium light body with moderately high carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler from Half-Time. Pours a clear caramel brown with a thin beige head that falls to nothing quite fast. Big sweet caramel notes with just a little graininess underneath. Thin to medium bodied, still a little sweet. Ends with a big grainy finish. Better than I’d expected, but still not amazing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep, dark brown color with a decent tan head. Hoppy aroma to go along with some malt. Light, bitterness in the flavor, with a mix of malt and hops. Dry finish. Decent beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Icehouse in Punta Gorda, FL. Clear brown pour with a nice off white head. I was surprised by the hop aroma, very nice for a non-micro. Good flavor, malty and a nice bitter finish. Lighter than it looks, easy drinking. I really enjoyed this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings while out to a special dinner with my eldest offspring. Dark hickory pour with white frothy head which actually left some nice lacing. The flavor was a bit watery and not the strongest flavor beer I’ve ever had. There was a distinct bitterness in this one to give it a bit of character. I only had it because I haven’t seen it in bottles yet, so I figured this was my chance to try it. I don’t feel a particularly strong need to go back.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Was really disappointed in this one. Had on draft. Pour was really carbonated, almost looking like I had been brought a Dr. Pepper or something when I got it. Brown beer with a reddish tint to it. Nothing really impressive in either smell or taste.
