Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The cool old school styled label has no other info.
Appearance: In the glass it has a nice reddish brown color with good clarity. A small light tan head settles to a thin ring of slick lacing around the edge of the glass to cap this beer off.
Smell: The nose is light overall and has a modest bready maltiness with light toasted notes, some raw gain and toffee like sweetness. Hops are very distant but seem to add a slight earthy character.
Taste/Palate: The base is malty but a bit thin for the style. There are mild bready and toasted notes with some caramel and toffee like sweetness balanced by light earthy hops. This adds mild bitterness, a touch of acidity and a little dryness to the finish. On the tongue it feels a bit thin for the style and there is plenty of carbonation.
Notes: For me it just misses the mark and my overall feeling is that it’s a very drinkable but average at best Bock.

malty, has that bready yuengling yeast ester. nice clear red tinted deep dark copper/mahogany color. reasonable head. very mild flavor profile, dominantly malty with a tangy quality. there’s a solid bitterness in the finish. a bit thin in body and flavor. Dal9000 (669) - Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2013
As much as people rave about Yuenleung, I never saw the attraction. Until now. This bock is Carmel and slightly sweet with a long malt taste.

Deep copper, almost ruby color. Weak carbonation, rocky one-finger head and tight lacing. Clear, but a bit dull and lackluster.
Slight sweet, smoky malt aroma with a hint of bourbon. Not much hop aroma to speak of.
Slight caramel and toasted, smoky malt flavor, with a hint of bourbon. Well-built, with a sweet malt character that is true to style.
Light, thin, smooth, but a bit flat in the mouth. Doesn't seem to be the intended filling winter seasonal.
Overall, a good beer that I would try again, and am interested in trying other examples of the style.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Andrew! Pours a darker amber with a small tan head. Aroma of of malt, caramel, and a touch of dark fruit. Taste is caramel malt, dark fruit, and nuts. No complaints. It is what it is.

I like bocks, bocks like me. This is one bock that was mediocre at best. A clear reddish-brown pour is topped by a medium sized off-white head, more bubbly than creamy. The aroma is plums, caramel malts, and some grass. The flavour was sweetened grass and a bitter end. Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle. So I ahve a soft spot for the Yueng being from the Philly area. This is not a great Bock. But you should buy it anyway as it is a great company. beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with small thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, and brown sugar, with light caramel and flowery hop. Flavor was combination of hop up front, but largely malty bitterness, that diminished into watery and suds finish, bitter on the tongue at the end. Heavier in palate than the other varieties from this brewery, so it stands out as a bock. barncatmatt (2355) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
355 ml bottle from publix in kissimmee Florida. Pours brown with a small tan head. Nice nutty caramel slightly smokey dunkler bock. Simple but on style. Good enough. FLVC2 #3 tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2013
