12oz bottle on 14-Nov-2015, poured into a long stemmed tulip glass. Hazy pale amber colour with a medium sized creamy white head which slowly dissipates. Medium body and carbonation. Aroma of cereal, yeast and sweet malt. Flavour of toasted caramel malt and hops. A pretty decent creamy bittersweet finish. ThirstyBird (2996) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2015
On tap at Detroit Metro airport, pours a bright, clear honey color with a tan head. The smell is toasted malt, mild fruit, caramel and bread. The taste is as it smells with a dry ending. The body is light+ with active, prickly carbonation. Just OK. coyforce (684) - California, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Flavor is a bit not as sweet as expected, in fact, a bit tart. However, the overall impression of this brew is good and I expect it to hold it’s own against the standard, average brew served by the major beer companies. DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/20/15] Draught at Gordon Biersch Mission Valley in San Diego. Clear golden. Aroma of malt, slightly grainy, with honey-ish hint. Sweetish flavor with malt, bready, a bit caramelly, a bit honey-ish, with a slightly drier finish with a bitterish hint and a faint alcoholic note. Light to medium-bodied.

Tap at Gordon Biersch - ATL airport. Clear golden pour with minimal head. Bready, malty, a bit too sweet, with an odd rough edge on the finish.

Aroma of lemon, coriander, orange and hay. Appears a copper gold with a moderate foam. Taste is smooth with an odd malt funk, creamy vanilla, lemon, carbonated grain malt and coriander. Overall, not too bad. Big creamy malt overtones and a more assertive carbonation. brandon1989 (691) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Pours a transparent golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is very bready and sweet malts, caramel. The taste is more of the same. There is a very minimal hop bitterness. Luvystypotables (2067) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Aroma of yeast and bread, golden color with a lasting creamy well laced head. Creamy feel with a taste of bread and malt. With a bready finish. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
"a pretty nice malty aroma and flavor. the body is a little bit lacking for a 7% bock, but isn’t bad at all. average for the style, slightly better than the average beer overall."

Orange/gold with a small white head that doesn’t last long. Nothing in the aroma portends a firm maltiness. Flavor is toffee/caramel sweet with a light bitterness. Feels like a bock, full bodied with a slick creaminess. If i was going to drink a beer of this style I’d prefer something darker with more malt character.
