Hey I read the great reviews here and elsewhere so I gave it a shot and wammo-blammo, its really good! I also enjoyed the heck out of is breweries porter.

Neither is special, like super duper good, but for the money you would be shocked at how good these are.

Basically this is a straight-forward bock. A sweet tan lager with an emphasis on drinkability, made from roasted rather than crystal malts. This is a good representation but because of the alcohol content tastes to me more like a double bock. No complaints, however not everybody will like the strength, especially considering its poured by the pint :-)

Serious drinkers take note, this is a bargain. Delicate palettes, look elsewhere (Celebrator for instance) but you can't match this much flavor for this much dollar.

"Hi neighbor! Have a "Gansett!" Remember that slogan? Then you're old, too! ;-) I first saw it in an add for 'Gansett on the back of a Red Sox Yearbook, around the late '60's.... Yikes! Anyhow, have seen 6-packs of these 16oz cans at Market basket for $7.99... Hmmmm... Seemed to be worth a shot, and I do like Maibocks.... So, wtf, eh?

Poured a can into an imperial pint glass.... It's a clear brew, with some slow, steady carbo, and a rich, medium-copper color. Head is a smidge off-white, foamy and fluffy, and sticks to the edges quite nicely. Aroma has some toasty malt and a bit of grassy hopping. Body is solidly medium, and it is mostly smooth going down, having just a touch of prickliness.

Flavor has some subtle sweetness, more toasty malt, some bready action, and a light hint of caramel. Afterwards it has some grassy notes plus a stab of spiciness. Some florality lingers a bit, but the finish is mostly on the dry side. Overall, not bad.... was hoping for a bit more of a pronounced malt profile, but this is still a good value. And, I believe, my first 'Gansett ever. How about that, neighbor?

Prosit!!
