16 oz. can. No freshness date, except for some code stamped on the bottom.
Served in a tall Harpoon Nonic glass.
The color is a brassy amber with a fast-fading white head. Thin wisps of webby lacing cling to the glass.
A grassy, wet hay smell dominates, followed by a light peaty malty aroma. A mild citrusy smell is followed by slightly boozy white rum fuminess.
The malt and hop flavors are fairly evenly matched. Bready dough, honey sweetness, metallic and citrusy hop bite and a separate and unmistakable rummy alcoholic punch all greet the buds in random order. A very faint taste of orange zest peeks in.
It's an usual bock in that the flavor profiles remain distinct and apart, even as it warms.
This is definitely one of the better beer values ($6.50 a 16 oz.sixer, no less) in the New England area.
