Light copper; very nutty. A little buttery malt. Thick malts. Standard issue stuff. daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2003
Honeyish, sweet and fruity nose. The body is exceptionally sweet. Caramelly malt and a very light hint of smoke. Not a big fan of this, too sweet and not working well. Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2003

Pale yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was sweet...brown sugar comes to mind. The flavor was malty sweet and had a hint of alcohol in it. I got a little clove in the finish...crisp and dry. Decent bock. rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Poured a clear gold with a white head. Dusty, grainy malt aroma. Very sweet and malty. Dry with medium carbonation. The bottle gushed when opened, so perhaps this beer could have been better.

lots of malt in the aroma, lots. there is a slight hint of both diacetyl and alcohol in the nose as well. the color is not quite right for the style but that is not what i am judging here. it is a brilliantly clear beer of golden color with somewhat week head retention. the flavor is dominated by malt as it should be. there seems to be a touch of sourness that should not be there. possible oxidation due to poor storage at the store. a bit of a grainy aftertaste lingers for a short time. the medium body and light carbonation are nice but there is also a slight astringency to this bottle.

Pretty tasty. Not what I expected. Very rich, kind of sweet start then slighly bitter finish. Alittle dopplebock-like BillKismet (4057) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2002
This tan-bronze bock has a frothy cream head and gives off an unrefined, moderately heavy aroma of brown sugar/corn syrup. The flavor is a bockish sweet rounded malt that is initialy sweet almost to the point of cloying. After it sits in the mouth, especially after it warms, the flavor mellows and spreads, allowing carmel notes to appear. This bock lacks depth--the more developed aftertaste is the best characteristic. rich42 (128) - USA - MAY 19, 2002
mmmm tasty.... very thick considering how light in color it is... has the looks of a pilsner, with the body and strength of a double-bock. I’m not complaining. heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAR 25, 2002
This is a really nice pale bock. Great malt taste that I can only describe as ’german’ Sweet but not cloying. I get just a whiff of lingering hop bitterness on the tongue at the finish. Solid bock.
