4.08/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Picked this up at Smokin Joe's in Jacksonville, AL for $9.99 a sixer. Poured this up in my Dogfish Head shaped pint.

A: Pours a very nice golden yellow in color. Held to the light, it glows golden yellow. Got about a 1/3 of a finger of creamy white head. Sadly it doesn't stick around too long. Falls to a thin ring with a floater in the center. A little bit of lace stays up on the glass but nothing crazy. The body is crystal clear, showcasing a very steady carbonation activity kickin in here. Not bad.

S: Smell is all grain and hops. Just smells like earth and the grains that grow in it. Hops are nice and light, good and European. Malts are pale and lightly sweet. Very clean.

T: I don't know exactly why, but I dig the flavor kickin in here. Yet again, lots of grain in here that has an almost hearty quality to it. The hops are very evident of German influence, nice and clean. Good and grassy with a touch of floral. There is this really nice sharpness that the hops add to the beer to cut some of the grain and malt sweetness. Aftertaste is a little bit of grapefruit and honey. I really like it.

M: Nice and light but it has some weight to it on the palate. Has a bit of stickiness to it as it lightly coats the mouth. The beer ranges from sweet to sharp lingering. ABV is not ever worth mentioning, not an issue at all. Finishes pretty clean and crisp. Aftertaste is the above mentioned grapefruit.

D: This is an easy drinking golden bock. It has a good flavor, nice aroma and an easy drinking simplicity. From what I have read on the bottle, this is what SN was going for. Mission accomplished people. It works for me, but as I found out last night, I can't drink more than five of these in a sitting. They just sit a little heavy and the simplicity does get a little monotonous at times. Still a tasty beer and a nice change from crazily uber hopped beers from SN. I liked it. What?
