look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This brew pours a deep brown/reddish/black color with a half-finger head a little of which remains on the top until the end. Very little lacing.

The smell is rich with nuts, roasted and sweet malts. There is also a hint of floral hops in the smell.

The taste is nutty with rich roasted malts at the forefront. A little chocolate and some floral hops on the back end. Just a tiny hint of alcohol leaks through.

The mouthfeel is crisp and filling, thick and bready. There is a little bitter, dry aftertaste on the back end.

Overall, this is a decent bock, however it does not taste as good as it smells. A little more flavor would be nice but this is not bad as long as you can find it cheap.

Poured from the bottle into a pilsner style glass.

Great looking bock, with a real beautiful body color. Shades of chestnut and mahogany red, light and glowing. Very fine rising carbonation through the middle. Head is a bit watery and soapy, makes only about two fingers and has thin retention. Pretty solid otherwise.

Very light toasted grains, and a small amount of toffee and sharp clove. Slightly fruity also a bit.

Highly crisp and light palate. Real interesting malt and toffee angle, which is light and hints at a nice sense of black licorice. Crisp and crackling finish and a bit of grass, with a hint of sharp carbonation and minerality. Quite interesting, and feels real unique. Liking this mix of light toffee, licorice, and prickly carbonation.

If there was a light bock out there that hit at simplicity and easy drinking this is it.

It sometimes amazes me, with all of my reviews, which ones have fallen through the cracks. In this case, it was probably due to its only being being bottled, but now is the time!

From the bottle: "Tastes Good".

I hope that the goat is right. My pour got me a finger of fizzy, light-tan head that quickly dropped out of existence. Color was a cola-brown (SRM = > 22, < 27) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a sugary malty sweetness and I was reminded why I may not have reviewed this previously. Mouthfeel was kind of thin and watery and the taste was actually not as sweet I had girded myself to expect. Instead, it had a slightly grassy hoppiness that helped to offset the malt. Finish was semi-sweet, but kind of bland for the style. I would be willing to try it again if they CAN it, but as long as it is bottle-only, it will remain a real one-and-done for me.
