12oz can poured into an Idle Hands tulip.

A - Pours a neutral amber color with excellent clarity and a finger of frothy off-white head that shows decent staying power. Foamy lacing left on the glass as the head recedes.

S - A bit herbal and spicy up front - rye malt, a bit of caramel, citrus and grassy hops, grapefruit.

T - Grassy, fruity and estery, spicy rye. A touch of caramelly sweetness and a bit buttery too.

M - Soft and a bit oily in feel. Medium body with a lighter medium carbonation that is tingly but unobtrusive.

O - Not bad...not my favorite style, but quite drinkable. Nice hop presence cuts the malt enough to really balance this off nicely. Worth a shot.

Poured into a becker a deep copper color with a sticky full one finger head atop that slowly settled into a frothy mass.some spicy rye and light caramel notes in the nose,faint leafy hops.A nice flavor profile with the spiciness from the rye mixed with almost a whiskey-like note,not overly sweet and a decent amount of leafy hop drying in the finish.This is a solid bock and the rye plays a real role,nice job here.

This beer was poured into a pint glass. It was a dark amber color with a minimal head.

Aroma of spicy rye. Some citrus.

Spicy rye taste. A little grapefruit. Caramel and bread.

Sweet and malty.

Not bad, not great. In the meh category. I wouldn't want to drink this again.

12 oz can. Pours clear light copper amber with a huge creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued - bready rye with a little fruit.

The flavor is rye and sweet nutty malts and a little sweet caramel and fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid rye beer, but not much of a bock.

Serving glass: Poured from can into dimpled mug.

Appearance: Bright orange with okay off-white. Looks more like a Maibock.

Smell: Bread, wheat, rye, spice and citrus.

Taste: Lots of bread notes going on here, including more traditional bread notes, wheat and rye. Some general fruitiness as well. All of these malt notes are balanced but softer than expected for a Bock. Finish has a sharp kick from the spicy rye and some tangy citrus notes that are different from normal citrus hop notes.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, medium body, dry finish.

Overall: This is a unique and tasty lager that pulls in some elements from wide ranging styles. But this really isn't a Bock.
