Brand new beer tonight. Picked up from Wally World. $7.28/6-pack. Lets see if this Bock rocks.

Appearance - in 12 oz glass bottle.

Smell - caramel rolls, a juicy bloody steak (yep?), buttered vegetables. It could be a full course meal plus dessert. Oh and the usual light floral hoppiness. Oh! And its got that Rolling Rock thing going on... the sour ale smell. There's a lot to talk about here.

Taste - refreshing with character and the right balance of hops and bitters. Tasty. Metallic finish. Tastes almost nothing like it smells though.

Mouthfeel - crisp and refreshing. Flows like a river. Reminds me of Coors' mouthfeel, just a little more full-bodied. I could go without the metallic aftertaste though. Does melt pleasantly syrupy after the wash is gone.

Overall - it's got a good thing going. I don't know if I would pay the $7.28 for a sixer again unless I really got a craving for it. This beer is pleasant to drink however and is definitely worth a try.

Serving type: bottle
