2.64/5 rDev -15.9%
Tasted On: 09-14-2013
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, twist-cap
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: 6-pack from Kroger
A: Starts with a good-sized offwhite head on the clear, dark copper beer. The head shows a fair retention level and no lacing.
S: Well, there's not much to say about the smells, as I only detect perhaps a light malty sweetness.
T: The taste follows the nose in that there's not much in the way of flavors to speak of. I get some breadiness of malt and no hop character.
M: Moderately carbed with a medium body, the finish is lightly sweet and has some unpleasant medicinal notes.
O: I wasn't a big fan of this one. It would do as a beer to gulp down at the bowling alley...

Poured from a 12 oz bottle purchased at the Wegmans in State College, PA.
A- The body is a translucent medium brown with a small and short-lived gray/tan head.
S- Light but malty. Nutty and caramel on the nose.
T- Malty and subtly roasty. Very light and unoffensive.
M- Light and bubbly.
O- Quite comparable to Genesee Bock, if not a half notch below it. Easy to drink if you want to have multiples.

Appearance - Light brown, lightly carbonated, light head, and alive.
Smell - Mildly smoky and malty with a slight earthy aroma.
Taste - Slightly bitter yet clean. Mildly malt flavor and excepted. No bad surprises and fits the bock style well as far a Texas made beer goes.
Mouthfeel - Light and clean, the beer feels nice on the palate.
Overall - My favorite beer for barbecuing, especially brisket. This beer is best served ice cold with ribs or Texas style barbecue.
