Date: 8/31/14
Location: Half Time Mamaroneck
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Light Brown to amber in color when held to the light. Beige off white head that when poured aggressively barely came to be. The beer lets some light through and there appears to be no sediment in the glass.
Aroma: The malt profile is of bread crusts and some light sugars. Light to mild hop aroma that is a touch floral.
Taste: Very crisp beer with the malts again providing some bready flavors along with some sweeter caramel malts. The hop flavor really is not apparent to me but the bitterness is noticeable.
Mouthfeel: Very crisp light/medium to medium bodied beer with a medium high carbonation level. The finish is very sweet and mouthwatering leaving me wanting more.

Not a bad bock, like an old friend it's always there. At least in Texas.

Serving Type: 12 oz bottle poured into a glass mug.

Appearance: Clear, dark amber brown. Fizzy, off white head; recedes with minimal lacing.

Smell: Clean, lightly toasted grains, a bit of malt extract sweetness.

Taste: Mostly malt, lightly toasted and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body crisp carbonation.

Overall: Far from the robustness of a true bock. More of an amber lager; light and drinkable with a bit of malt character.
