look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

I'll admit that I'm not a huge fan of bocks in general, but this one's just sweet without much else going for it. It gets too sweet too fast if it doesn't stay extra cold.

A: A nice transparent amber. Poor head.

S: Slightly sweet, fairly plain.

T: Extremely sweet without any hops to counterbalance.

M: Very crisp and bubbly, great for a hot day. Somewhat watery.

O: Not terribly exciting as far as bocks go.

Serving type: bottle

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Purchased from one of the local grocery stores.

A: A nice amber coloration. Unfortunately, the head is moderate at best and the retention is very poor.

S: Plain. The malt prevent in comparison to the hop, but still weak. That said, it is no way offensive.

T: Malty and sweet.

M: Quite crisp and refreshing. Heavy on the carbonation and thin.

O: A decent brew, but disappointing overall. I expected more.

Serving type: bottle
