Bomber. Poured clear, bright golden with a nice cap of white head. The aroma picked up fresh grapefruit and juicy floral notes over sweet, toasted bread and a little vanilla supported.. clean and well-balanced. The flavor found chewy bready notes and a kiss of honey at the core, with fresh citrus and grassy bitterness around.. peppery warmth rolled in toward and through the finish.. very tasty stuff! Medium-bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. loved the balance.. I could drink a lot of this! Strykzone (7351) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Clear light golden beer with a soapy off white head. An aroma of hops and grain, rye maybe. I find the aroma to be more interesting than the flavor. Hops are lighter when tasted as is the grain. That being said, this is imminently drinkable and would make a great crossover beer. As it warms the hops grow and bring more bitterness, fruit, and tartness. The Hallertauer begins to come through.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a light crystal clear pale gold with a thick frothy white head. Malty nose. Flavors of straw with some mild hoppiness, producing a lingering bitter finish. Quite smooth and crisp. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Vibrant golden, light carbonation, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Cereal nose, pale hops, stale bread.   Pale breadiness up front, malty, mealy, a little dank.   Hops aren’t hoppy or biting, they
are rather dank and musty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit for not being somewhat light its pretty smooth.   As it warms the hops become more apparent, but not in bitterness.   Pale breadiness, dank hops, and a
touch of sweet maltiness lingers.   Tiz okay. wlajwl (6801) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Aroma is pale malts, up front German hops and very slightly perfumed. The flavor is pale malts, citrus, tropical fruit and a mostly smooth/slightly tart finish.
Braudog (6710) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle. Nice, bright golden pour, crystal clear and still, yet presenting a bountiful head of pure-white foam. The aroma is sharp and seductive, hinting at a nicely hopped brew. Indeed, this drinks like a super-powered version of the best, hoppiest pilsners of southern Germany and the Czech republic, but with an added plus of a big heavy mouthfeel. Good, good stuff, an excellent lager made for the hop-snobs. (#5067, 6/23/2013) ajnepple (6606) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2013
22 oz bottle shared. Pale golden and cloudy with a frothy white head. Nice retention and lacing. The aroma is fresh herbs, earthy hops, spices, light malts. Light to medium body with a dry feel. Toasted caramel malts and lingering spicy hop flavor. Finishes bitter and dry. Pretty tasty and refreshing Patrickctenchi (6585) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Slightly hazy gold, white head.
Fruity, light pine....hop aroma.
Orange malt, pine taste.
Rather more like an APA than a bock....
Pretty nice, though. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottled, clear golden with fluffy white foam, aroma is steely hops, great bitter marshmallow and lemon flavors, really nice beer Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate grass with a touch of bread and sweetness. It pours a transparent gold with a three finger soapy white head that has good retention. A good amount of sticky webbing is left behind on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate honey. The finish has light-moderate grass, floral notes, orange peel, and some faint lemon. It’s light-medium bodied with somewhat soft carbonation and mouthfeel.
