COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Genesee Bock Beer Special Edition, from Genesee!
Our take on the 16th century German legend has turned out to be a legend in its own right. For every spring since 1951, our brewery has carefully crafted and lagered Genesee Bock Beer. The result is an exceptionally hearty, full-flavored beer with a slight malty finish—and a perfect way to celebrate the snow melt.

From old tasting notes. Translucent medium dark brown color with a foamy tan head. Faint roasted malt nose reminiscent of baked beans. Ligh sweet roasted malt flavor upfront. Middle flattens out and tends to be slightly salty. Finish is toasted mal and light hops. A decent cheap Bock beer.

wlajwl (6866) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 24, 2017
Aroma and flavor is malts, mild fruit and a relatively clean/mildly sweet finish. Comparing it to craft examples isn’t fair but it was pretty decent.

On tap at the Taproom on 104. As others have said, it’s probably Genny’s best offering. Tastes like being home.

Can. Light brown, whitish head. Some Carmel malts. Easy drinking, but noting special.

Still bordering on mass produced swill, but of the malty non-offensive kind. I’d take a free one but wouldn’t buy one. Same with any Gene.

2.2
bnokk (535) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2016
APPEARANCE- dark amber color with slightly beige head. NOSE- earthy & slightly bitter hop scent. FLAVOR- a bit malty with slightly bitter hop flavors. NOTES- May be one of Genesee’s best offerings, but does not stand up well to the bock beer style.

2.2
tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Can shared poured cola brown sweet malt and caramel in the nose and the flavor not so good all the way around. I found nothing here drinking sweet caramel water.

Bottle - small foamy head, dark amber/brown color, sweet malty aroma and flavor, some earthy hop balance in the background, not bad overall
