Flight at New Bohemia. Pours clear gold. Scent is tropical fruit and wheat. Taste is similar. Body is light. Finish is watery. Easy drinking decent bock. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Tap at buster’s on 28th. Very faint aroma. Hazy pale gold. Small head. Nice lace. Initial mouthfeel is pepper and alcohol, but in a good way. Served a little too cold. Tastes stronger than 7% but this is a really good beer. jackl (8446) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Keg @ Busters. Deep gold with a small white head. Nose is of baked bread. Mild cracked pepper and grass. A bit of honey. Flavor is sweet with a moderately full, somewhat boozy finish. Apricot spread. Toasted bread. A bit oily. abcfan (928) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Nicely done beer. Pours a deep amber brown with an off white head. Aroma is dark fruit and fog with a hint of hops. Smooth and drinkable with a caramel finish. AnokaBrewer (223) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Interesting concept. It tastes like a bock, though it is also hoppy. You get a taste like an IPA, but then the caramel malt flavor comes through like a bock beer.

I rather enjoyed this, though my wife did not. I love the name, to be sure, but more important, it provided a good body, hints of richness and primary malt effect, with some fruity and caramel interactions. A good take on the bock.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is amber-brown with a big tan head and sticky lacing. Husky, brown sugar, caramel malty, hay, grassy, and plummy aroma. Taste is orange peel, caramelly, brown sugar, husky, grassy hoppy, and bready. Medium body with high carbonation. OK. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Pour on tap at Grumpy’s NE, dark reddish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toast, bread into some grass, orange, some red fruit, slight grain. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, slight caramel into toffee, slight herbs, finishing slightly sweet, slightly bitter. islay (3036) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Estimated 14 oz. pour, on tap at Punch Pizza in Nordeast Minneapolis, Minnesota. Consumed on 3-12-15. Pours a nice, bright, dark amber with a moderate to large amount of creamy, taupe-colored head. Clear liquid. Produces long-lasting lacing. Looks appealing and sophisticated. Malty, toasty aroma. Scents of plum, red grape, tangerine, and carmelization. Juicy, fruity smell. Bread dough flavor. Sweet start but fairly dry finish. Nice, dull, toasty flavor. Caramel with a light sear. Enjoyable and refreshing but a bit too sweet for my tastes. Dry, bitter, burnt toast aftertaste that I like. Professionally made and solid. Full body for a lager. Crisp and lively in the palate. Easy to drink for a beer with relatively high ABV. This is another winning lager from a brewery that excels at them. badgerben (5349) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle. Copper color with a medium head. Solid bready aroma, with lots of caramel and malt character. Some dusty grains as well. Strong, grainy flavor. Astringent and bitter. A bit of dry caramel. Medium body. The hops tend to overwhelm the underlying bock, but the lingering astringency melds oddly with the pile of hops.
