Being that my name is Andy, I was naturally drawn to Andygator. I’m typically not a big fan of Bocks but I’m enjoying this one. Definitely has a bite to it and maintains a malty character. Would probably buy again if possible.

Sample from September 11, 2009 Beer Club Meeting. Looks dense! Light amber color. Thin, sticky color. Spicy, almost woody (pine?), light fruit flavor. Tastes like... cayenne? Much like a pale, spicy lager. Is it really spicy, or am I just hallucinating?

Bomber into a Guinness glass (thanks, Leon’s Pub...). Fruity and malty that really doesn’t remind me of anything dry like they say.

Couldn’t get into this one at all. Just seemed like a clash between the strange aroma and the lack of imagination and flavor. The beer pours out a clear light amber/colden color with 1" white head. Aroma is old cereal and corn with a strange...milkyness to it. Flavor is dominated by overly-sweet malts, alcohol and a mildewy grassy note. Reminds me in many ways of some kind of European malt liquor.

Poured from the bomber bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer has a clear gold-amber color with a good-sized, foamy white head that had good retention and cling. The beer had a pleasant mix of floral and citrus hops with some grain and yeast components too; not much malt character in the scent. Its taste was largely sour, yeasty and floral, with a touch of bitterness and sweetness. The body was mostly wet with low carbonation and a medium-heavy body. I enjoyed this beer, and thought it was solid, better than advertised.

Bottle pours a clear golden color with a decent sized, foamy, white head. Watery lacing that falls apart quickly. Sweet malty aroma with a touch of alcohol and honey in the background plus another slightly off smell I can’t quite describe (maybe swamp scum). The alcohol is fairly noticeable in the malty sweet flavor. Dry finish with little in the way of aftertaste. On a hit or miss scale this one is mostly a miss in my book.

Bomber. Poured crystal-clear lighter golden with a medium cap of stark white head. The aroma picked up honey and lightly-toasted bready notes, with some corn and warm boozage above.. smelled cheap and strong. The flavor was along those same lines.. syrupy sweet core of corn, honey, and lesser bready character with earth and vanilla around.. very sweet and very strong.. no real flaws, but not very good. Heavier-bodied and quite carbonated on the palate.. sweet as mentioned, leaving warmth well after the finish.

650mL bottle. Pours clear yellow with thin white laced head. Slightly sweet aroma. Test is sweet, bock like, body is far too thin.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Not good, but not terrible either. Too thin, with a fruity candy sweetness throughout the flavor. Minor alcohol and metal flavor. Unbalanced and lacking complexity. No hops or spices were added.
