Had on tap at the John Harvard's in Smithaven Plaza. Served in a pint glass. First bock review so take this review for what its worth.

Look: light golden color, one finger head that doesn't retain very well. I don't have any lacing left behind.

Smell: smells very sweet. Dough scented malt is mostly what I get. Smells very inviting.

Taste: subtle noble hops but mostly its about the malt. Very sweet and similar to the nose.

Feel: sweet, not much bitterness anywhere. Its light in body. The carbonation is nice at first but its fairly flat fairly fast, which is a common thing with John Harvard's beers I'm afraid.

Drink: pretty easy to drink.

Overall, a decent beer. I dunno what other bocks I could compare it to because I haven't had any other bocks, but this seemed like a easy drinking lager with some extra flavor over a BMC. (842 characters)

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger foamy. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a seriously doughy malt with a touch of earthy sweetness.

The taste consisted of a mildly earthy malt with a full soft doughiness. There was a subtle noble hop presence as well.

The mouthfeel was on the lighter side, but clean and crisp.

Overall very quaffable. Light for a bock, but very sessionable. TAP New York best beer award winner 2010. (456 characters)

On tap at JH. Pours a clear, light orange with a small white head. Aroma of sweet fruits and a touch of citrus. Flavor of light wheat malt and some light fruits in the finish. Crisp with a solid palate. Very easy drinking and quite enjoyable to drink. A winner! (261 characters)
