i had a 20oz glass of this at the gordon biersch in palo alto, ca...
i was excited to see the head on this beer.. what a pour...
everything from the substantial lace to the color was great..
but that's where the greatness ends.
sharp smells of citrus are instantly noticeable... i was expecting a deeper flavor profile, especially considering the 7%ABV and color of this beer...
i was sorely disappointed in every aspect.. the mouthfeel was over carbonated, and astringent, and the flavor left nothing pleasant in my mouth. no be honest, the beer didn't really leave any flavor in my mouth once i swallowed.
for me this was an almost non-existent beer.

3.46/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Gold/copper with a decent sized but quickly disappearing head. Noticeable carbonation.
Smell: Bready malts, grass, caramel.
Taste: Caramel, honey, grass, and a hint of floral hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied and creamy. Not much of an aftertaste.
The Verdict: Good beer. A solid, well balanced bock offering. Nothing out of the ordinary maybe, but exactly what it’s supposed to be. You really can’t ask for more than that.

I can't attest for the sight of this beer since I am drinking it out of the bottle next to a fire, but if its anything like the rest of the beer I imagine it being quite average.
Again drinking from a bottle doesn't do smell justice either, up front there were some lemon notes mixed with some bready caramel. Maybe a bit of alcohol.
It taste...ok. A touch spicy, mainly sweet. The malt is prevalent in this brew, although the citrus lets its presence know right away. I have to say finishing this beer there was an isopropyl taste during the last few drinks. Not a real great after taste.
Overall I would only recommend this beer to someone who likes trying different bock style beers. It did come in a variety 12 pack so I'm hoping there is some gold left in it.
