Picked up the 24 oz bottle of this, perfect size for this brew IMO. This brew poured to a crystal clear golden yellow color with a good sized white head. The head lasted a good time and then thinned out to a nice sheet of white foam. The lacing was concentrated at the top of the glass. The aroma has some enticing qualities; toasted malt flavors come through, spicy hops scent adds to it. The taste profile here IMO is of a good bock, nice malt pilsner malt flavor with a slightly surprising toasted flavor. The hops that are present really add a spicy zing that lingers nicely at the back of the mouth. The carbonation mixes well with the spicy hop presence. All of these things lead to what IMO is a very well balanced and well done brew. Surprised at the 6.4 % ABV, drinks and goes down east. Will get this one again. Now I will mark down the drinkability a little bit just because it is not a favorite style of beer, but that could easily be higher.
