Poured from a longneck into a shaker. A moderate pour produces a billowing 1.5 inch frothy, white head that dissipates into a continuous sheen that sticks around pretty well. The beer is a pale copper color ("strawberry blonde"), crystal clear, and with light carbonation.

A very delicate floral hop aroma is apparent, along with a little DMS. The flavor could be described as snappy, with a decent hit of spice and some citrus to balance out the grain or cracker-like malt base. The body/mouthfeel is very moderate, with some lingering frothiness. A little bit of alcohol warming is apparent, to accentuate the spice and herbal notes.

The beer goes down easy and is just light enough to make it a bit dangerous as a session beer. It strikes me as an excellent example of a light bodied beer with some complex flavors and an alcohol bite, which is just what you want in a bock.

According to the brewery's website, I should not be able to buy this beer within a hundred miles of where I live, but I actually bought a six pack at Front Street Market in Butte, Montana. It was 7-something a six pack on sale.
