Thick grey-brown color, decent head. Smooth enough, but still displays some Yuengling adjuncticities. Better than the Porter, so in a sense their best offering. Still sub-par.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2009
On draft and served in a plastic cup. Classy. Translucent brown body topped by a creamy off-white head. Very little on the nose, just a hint of maltiness. The taste is a similar affair, vague maltiness with a hint of banana. Thin fizzy body and way more bitter than a typical bock. Can’t recommended this one.

blipp (6959) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours deep red gold with a beige head. Malty sweet aroma with a bit of toast. Flavor is balanced, toasty sweet with light hops. Not bad.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Draft @ Famous Dave’s in Frederick, MD. Pours a reddish brown with a decent soft, off-white head. Malt (and a hint of burnt malt at that?), raisin, and ripe fruit in the nose. Medium carbonation and a medium mouthfeel. Caramel, ripe fruit, a little pine hops, and nuttiness on the palate. Fairly clean finish with a bit of lingering bitterness. An okay bock, but not great.

I’ve been hoping Yuengling would get into the seasonal beer business for years. With the success of Lager there’ s been no reason to delve into seasonal offerings. Yuengling Bock’s malt, caramel, light bitterness with a smooth delivery. Something not only a beer geek would try, but a Yuengling drinker as well. I hope this signals more seasonals from Yuengling.

DocLock (8530) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
Deep ruddy deep reddish brown pour with off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, dark fruit, with a medium heft body and flavors of malt, slight fruit, and slight red winet notes. Not great, just OK.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this new tap last weekend. It was a little thinner than other bocks, but other than that no complaints. I wish Yuengling would do this more often!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Sampled on draft at D’s in Monroeville PA this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was sour, tangy and nutty. The flavor was dryish and a bit tart with notes of caramel and light fruits. There was a long caramel finish. Decent.

This poured a darker brown color with an egg shell head. Aroma was really sweet and malty but nothing interesting. Flavor was sweet malts, some caramel and toffee in their but not much else to be said about this beer.
