There are two predominant characteristics of beer flavor: hops and malt. Some palates prefer one of these, I prefer a balance of the two as is found in the beers from Germany. This bock is an example of a typical American style of bock where the hops predominate and the malt sweetness is in the background. FIne if you prefer this style, a tragedy if you do not. I prefer a more balanced brew.

Decided to try this, kind of been on a bock/double bock kick lately...felt it was smoother than conventional yuengling lager, with a more refined taste. Decent reddish-umber colour, smelled faint notes of caramel. Left little to no head (came from tap and what little head was there quickly dissipated), taste was conventional bock, without being too dry. All told, a pleasing beer, but not one i would go out of my way for.

The appearance is a darker then amber, brown, with a light head. grainy aroma. A bit of hop presents, but this is malt centered, with a sweet and caramel taste. More carbination then expected. The price and the ease of drinking make it worth a try. I will take my bock exploration elsewhere.

Pours a deep amber brown with orange edges. Modest head with decent retention. Weak lacing, but more than other yuengling varieties.

Smells kinda like cold cuts. Very odd. Somewhat pleasing though.

Taste actually quite the surprise. Rich, bready, surprising floral hop presence. Stunned at the quality.

Mouthfeel a little thin for a bock, but otherwise not unpleasant.

Overall this one is worth the price of admission, which isn't actually saying much since it's very cheap. First of their seasonals that I felt was noticeably better than the lager.
