look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25

Aroma: Light dark bread note up front. Slight hint of sulfur in the background. Low dark fruit esters and a hint of earthy hop aroma.

Appearance: Clear copper pour with amber edges. Low off-white head that retains moderately.

Flavor: Dark bready character up front, a touch of spicy/earthy hop notes in the background to balance, and a hint of dark fruit. Nothing offensive, pronounced, or over the top. Balance is to the malt. Finish is crisp and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. A slight carbonic bite but no alcohol heat or astringency.

Overall impression: A very approachable beer. Provides much more flavor than the typical industrial/commercial offerings. It will appeal to the masses but probably won't do much for any extreme beer enthusiasts. The product is nicely done and for the price point, I'll be bock.

I just bought a 24-bottle case of thistuff down at my local beer distributor (PA.) Twas on sale $10 off since it's out of season by several months. (they kept it cold whole time, fortunately.)
i was in a mood for an un-pretentious lager or pilsener on this warm Spring late April day and et voila.
It is dark caramel/amber in appearance , doesn't have much going on in the nose, a grainy gritty slightly bitter taste and mouth-feel .
One cannot expect authentic German bock if Yuengling concocted this beer. It's very much Yuengling-y if y ou catch my drift .
You get what you pay for .
Would be good with sushi i'm thinking and burgers and Mexican fare . (your mileage may vary on food pairings, of course....)

On tap at Toby Hill in Clarion, PA.

Rather boilerplate--but solid--example of the style. Pours a limp and nearly headless brown with an aroma of grass and sugar dusted caramel. Tastes sweet and crisp, with mild and zippy nodes of fruit, biscuits, and sugar against a pleasantly fleeting backend of grass and mild hops.

Maroon color to the beer. However, no head. None. Looks unlike a beer.

Pretty robust and malty in the nose for a Yuengling. Some raisin, roast, cough syrup, and tinniness.

Bock-y roast and semi-fruitiness. Not terribly metallic, but it's here. Raisin, wet grain, dark bread, burnt sugar, wort-iness. Piquant in the finish, thanks to the stirring carbonation. Body is medium.

Eh, I'll be honest; I could easily have a few of these. Nothing too good. Just a malty Yuengling.

Pored from a bottle into a pint glass.

A: Medium amber color. Not too dark.

S: Light hops, not much of a malty aroma.

T: There is a balance of hops and malt, but the hops dominates. The hop flavor is not overly assertive, and overall the flavor is well balanced. It is very smooth, and interesting.

M: Thinner than I expect from a bock. It is light on the tongue.

O: Good bock, especially when I am in the mood for a slightly hoppy flavor. My only wish is that it would have a more substantial fell in the mouth.

Bought as part of a 6 pack from Beers of the World on 3/29/13.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass served cool.

Perfectly clear dark amber with a 1 finger tannish gray head. no lacing.

aroma: not pleasant, reminds me a little of a dirty diaper.

mouthfeel: slightly better than average.

taste: some toasted malt with a slight caramel sweetness before a nasty cooked vegetable taste .it ends with a husky dried corn impression before a slight metallic bitterness.

notes: this is horrible beer. mean looking, wretched smelling and awful tasting. I couldn't finish it and am now stuck with 5 more bottles.
