12 oz can, into a pint glass. Pours almost clear medium amber with thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet toasted caramel malt, spicy, slightly dank rye notes, light floral fruity notes linger. Taste is similar - big sticky sweet toasted malt, juicy mango and pineapple flavors mid-palate, dry rye notes linger through the finish. Odd but pleasant combo of not only styles but flavors as well.

August 3rd, 2014 - Beer Camp extends to aluminum cylinders, with the CANfusion Rye Bock. Auburn, with a finger’s depth of mottled, loose head, it sits squarely in that modal brown color that the beer hoi polloi take on, but the scent is anything but pedestrian. Fruits, peppers, pickles, mango, papaya and banana all convene to create some kind of deep, mysteriously, vaguely Brazilian based scent. The flavor is sweet and prickly up front (the good and wicked witches all in one), but calms down considerably on splash down to the tongue. It quickly calms and settles, the flavor profile becoming lower and thinner, and reaching long, long, long into the aftertaste, with a quiet tone of papaya calling out into the tropical night. juiceisloose (1484) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2016
12 oz can from Beer Camp series 2014. Pours a dark copper orange color that is topped by a small off white head of foam that fades slowly into the body below. The aroma shows notes of citrus hops and fruit, spicy rye, toasted bread and caramel malts. The flavor follows with the spicy rye, wheat malt, toasted bread and caramel up front followed by some resinous pine and citrus hop bitterness to help balance things out. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a spicy rye and citrus bitter finish. The alcohol is hidden quite well. Interesting beer and not what you would expect from a typical bock beer.

Camping with beer Camp! Slightly hoppy aroma though the taste is dominated by the malt. The rye adds spice and the citrus hops comes through as well. Nice. hopdog (12382) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2015
12oz can. Poured an amber color with an off white head. Caramel, rye, spicy, and some toastiness.

(Can, 0.355 l, at laiti’s, 20150613, thanks) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had malts and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, molasses, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A decent interpretation of a bock. FatPhil (15966) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2015
355ml can - thanks VastActiv! (6-:3:5:2+:11=2.7)Marduk (7598) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 21, 2015
Sweet porridgy aroma. Even more porridgy taste. Sticky and harsh drying palate. No balance. Messy. Sticky. No thanks. Not getting the mammi or breadiness I like from rye, and not getting anything I like that’s bocky.
330ml can @laiti’s, thanks. Dark amber color. No head, flat. Sweet, malty, bit starchy, fruity aroma. Sweet, citrus, fruity taste. Sweet fruity aftertaste. Somewhat messy and I think I had something like before. More than once. VastActiv (6942) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Can 12 fl oz at Laiti’s, Helsinki. Colour is deep orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, grain, rye, caramel and malts. Capa (3255) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2015
I enjoy rye in beer because I think it adds a depth and spice that is hard to find elsewhere. With this brew the rye added a nice alternative to the regular sweet malty bock that is all too common. You get the initial caramel malt profile with a good helping of earthy hops but the middle gets all spicy and rustic from the rye. An interesting twist.
