CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2005
On tap at the 2005 Great Taste of the Midwest: Clear copper pour is covered with a thin white head. Sweet, fresh, authentic bocky German malty aroma. Starts with some sweet caramel and sticky malt with a nice European hoppy balance. A very drinkable, well-done beer.

Guest tap at the Back Road open house:

Boy am I glad I didnt make a special trip to Munster for this. Without a doubt this is the worse beer ever brewed by FFF. Sweet and malty, no hops, no brightness, no character. Coy and sticky with massive honey overtones. I tried a couple samples to see if it would warm up to me, never happened. Oh well, every brewery has it mistakes.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of finely sized mostly diminishing off-white colored bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body contained very soft carbonation, was transparent and orange brown in color. Its aroma contained malty bock notes. Its mouth feel is initially slightly tingly with a lingering tingly aftertaste. Its flavor contained sweet malty bock notes. An above average brew.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Tap at FFF: Light golden brown and somewhat thin, which I never thought Id say about a 3F brew. Mild sweet and nutty malt flavor with a soft touch of hops and a hint of apples. Kind of lazy on the bock side.

Sampled at the Great Taste of the Midwest 2005. This poured a dark orange. The aroma is oranges and caramel. The is bready with some light toast and nuts. Not much else going on in this hoopy bock.

hotstuff (4921) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Tap at 3F. Very small off-white head, virtually no lacing, fine-small sized bubbles, transparent, no visible carbonation, and an orange hue. Aroma was sweet, malty, caramel and some hops. Flavor was malty and caramel. Tingly palate. Light-medium body.

Pretty true to style Bock. Reminded me of the Victory Hellerbock. Sweet with just enough bitterness. Felt a little alcoholic. Silky body, plenty there. Typical lager tastes. Not too shabby.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Sampled at GTMW. This beer pours to a hazy copper body with no head. The aroma is sweet with a light silage and corn. The flavor is good but not exciting. The palate is creamy and light. This is probably the least exciting beer that I had at the fest.

DrnkMcDermott (3031) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2005
Draft, at 3Fs. Pours deep orange with brown in the middle. Thin head. Taste is very grainy, a bit bready, even yeasty. Not a lot of hops, which is a surprise for a Floyds beer. Just a bit load of grainy malts without much roast in them, but a bit of orange taste toward the end. Guess Ill need to try another when the brewpub finally opens and they can serve it in a real glass.
