Nice beer, cool name. Imported to Japan, and thence to down here by that guy in Hokkaido who imports these ones. Glad he did, this is a solid brew. Is it really a bock? I don't know why they'd call it an ale if it's a bock (i.e. bocks are dark lagers, bottom-fermented by definition). Seems on this website a lot of beers are misidentified by noobs and then the style listed is never changed because it's too much of a hassle for all concerned!

To me, this is an American ale of a high standard. Deep golden copper with a trace of head and lots of thin lacing. Low carbonation. Full of flavour - the sweet notes of candied sugar (not sure if this is just the malt though), pleasing tart hoppiness without too much astringency or excessive bitterness, nice mouthfeel that's not too sticky nor too bland, and very drinkable. Aromas aren't too strong, and this is out of an almost-snifter, because of the low head retention and carbonation, but that's OK. This is a solid beer with an attractive appearance, pleasing taste and cool bottle artwork, that I will gladly drink again any time I get the chance. But I wouldn't call this a bock of any description.

Beer pours a crisp looking amber orange color with a slight head.

Clean aroma of malt and toast with maybe a little caramel. No aroma from yeast or hops.

Clean tasting, a little bit of malt and toast. Pretty simple though.

Medium body.

Overall a good beer for the style. Pretty simple with just flavors of toast and malt but rather tasty for the style. Nice and crisp as well.
