Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Clear brown. Tan head that quickly dissipates with little lacing.

Smell: Nothing too strong, maybe some piney aroma.

Taste: Spices and malt, hops, roasty.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, average carbonation.

Overall: Not a bad beer and I am glad I had it. First had it from the tap which was much better than the bottle .

I gave the Bock of the last two years a medium to low rating, majorily due to the fact that Yuengling has given way to the pressure to release their beer all too soon. In years gone by, the Bock wasn't released until March and ran through June, normal Bock release time. Typically a Bock is created at the end of winter and cellared until the first thaw, this gives it the distinct flavors, and causes it to mature through age. The Bock of old would release in the spring and the taste would evolve throughout the relaese. When Yuengling releases the Bock it is not ready for consumation, and it will have a very strong taste, both hoppy and roasted in taste. In my experience, the beer will maturate over a period of months, each month mellowing in flavor and revealing more complexities of the original mash tun. Although I don't agree with what Dick is doing with the release date of his Bock, I have put a few 6-packs on the shelf for, say, April and May, they will definately have a different taste by then.
