12oz. bottle poured in a pint glass. A rather light Bock beer with a dark amber translucent body and small-medium head. Smells of a balance of malts and grain with a hint of hops and alcohol. Taste mostly to the sweet malts side tending afterward to a slightly bitter bite of hops. Mouthfeel is mostly smooth, clean and refreshing, with medium crispness and carbonation. Overall a drinkable brew for an everyday beer but nothing special.

Decent beer. Better than your bud lights and keystone. But nothing great

This is not a bock. It's more of a flavored water. It reminds me of a waterd down abbey. No flavors stick out and what flavor there is, is stale and weak. If you like something like this then enjoy. If you're a bock fan, skip this

Excellent BBQ beer with a great feel. Don't think I would drink it any other time, though.
