-Poured a nice golden amber color with a nice 1/2" head that quickly disappeared. Minimal lacing that clung to the side of the glass but not for long.
-Nice carbonation that gave a very good mouthfeel
-a nice sweetness with a mild hop taste
-Very light smell, especially for a bock, mostly of grain
-Didn't leave much of an aftertaste and it quickly disappeared
-ABV is marked 6.7% on the 22oz bomber

Overall an exceptional beer. I too had this on tap at the Minster,OH Octoberfest and loved both the bock and the lager, although they were both very close in taste. They sold out faster than expected so 4 was all I could get my hands on that day. I had a chance to meet the new owner and he informed me of a long 3 years getting everything together to bring this beer back to production but by the looks of the long line, everyone was looking forward to it's return. Still seems to be a little hard to find although I do expect it to show up in more places more towards summer.

Had this beer at the Oktoberfest in Minster, Ohio last weekend. After researching, it appears this is being distributed by Barrel House now and they intend to continue selling it in the future.

Poured a clear, rich copper in color with nice head. Good example of a light to medium bodied bock with a nice amount of malt and alcohol flavor.
