Aroma is of caramel malt with hints of brandy. Taste is a strong sweet caramel and lots of peppery alcohol. Very dry, crisp mouthfeel. Tastes as if it may have been aged a bit in a barrel. Strong hop bitterness. Lacks complexity and depth of character. Drinkable.
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2017 Bottle to glass. Nice dark caramel color, clear and radiant. Tan head. Medium bodied. Malt bomb. It?s pretty good. Panzuriel (2256) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Appearance: Hazy rich amber. Finger of white foam.
Nose: medium sweet candy malt leading into fruit and floral notes
Taste: Sweeter with fruit and floral aspects blending nicely with the malt aspects.
Body: medium to thinner. No real texture.
Parting thoughts: a nice sweeter fruity bock. It’s been a long time.

Flew into Houston and had this beer. This was in March 2015. Still as fresh in my mind as it was in March. Hats off to you all at Saint Arnold. What a tasty and refreshing beer this was. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
Pale amber pour. The nose is quite malty. A little bit of toast and
some nice peppery character. There’s a little bit of nice sweetness
and a clean, well-lagered finish. There’s a little bit of lingering
sweetness. Pretty nice brew. There’s a touch of soft stickiness.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours with a small head that vanishes instantly. A bit of lacing, but it’s gone quickly too. Deep clear copper. Caramel malts and a bready smell. The flavor is redeeming. Caramel malts dominate, of course. Slight bitterness, but I’d hardly call it a hop presence. Not sweet a all. Just caramel goodness. Has a very bready finish. Good carbonation, just a bit thin. Slubgob (329) - West Hartford, USA - APR 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2015 Tap into pint. Hazy apricot color, fine thick textured white head. Nose of peah with a hint of hops. In the mouth, light with bright pint hops.medium finish with more hops, not as much fruit as I hoped from the nose.good easy drinking pale ale ethanTHEtrill (57) - - APR 7, 2015
Straight from a bottle off a sixer. Aromas of heavy malt and caramel. Notes come in strong with malt first then dissapates into nice caramel finish with slight booze and yeast. Pretty good stuff, enjoy slightly cool almost room temp, not to cold or the beer will not taste right.
