look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - Solid amber color, poured with about 3 centimeters head.

S - Malty, spring, fresh, a touch of citrus, touch of floral, very crisp.

T - Clean, good balance with the hops/grains. All the flavors here just seem to blend together and complement each other very well. Nothing overpowers or comes up terribly short.

M - Good carbonation level to go along with the balance of flavors.

D/O - Every seperate aspect of the beer really comes together as a whole here. You get the impression that the folks at Narragansett set out to create something specific in this style and managed to achieve it. Very refreshing all the way around. Will be drinking more. Will in fact be having to stock up on what I can still get before what is left is gone and the summer ale takes over! O, and did I mention? Tallboys.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a bright copper color with a nice white head that slowly leaves leaving some nice lacing.
Smells of grass and herbel Hops and sweet bread.
Taste is very nicely complex with grassy herbel Hops and sweet bread and Malts. Very interesting as the hops kick in and out quickly giving a very nice balance. Very flavorfull and refreshing this is a very nice drinking Bock and a very well made one. Narragansett really has their act together on this one and I give it a overal of 4.5
Thanks to Eddie for bringing me a six pack of this from trader Joes in the NY area last weekend as this one does not make pa yet!

This is an outstanding brew.
People should pay more attention to what this brewery is up to.
Once known for great macro,, (In Red Sox country) this company is stepping up big time.
This is a craft beer operation.
If you can find this Rhode Island Beer anywhere , buy it

I Recommend the Octoberfest, Porter, Bock, and even its flagship Macro.
Pay attention to this brewery.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Rich coppery color with active carbonation and off white head
Sweet malt aroma
Light malty taste with a nice touch of bitterness from the hops at the end
Mouthful is tingly, from carbonation, but light
Overall it is a nice spring beer - light, colorful, good carbonation.
Goes down easy and does give a taste of spring during this thaw.

pretty sure i reviewed this back when it first came out. oh well. guess it gives me an excuse to buy more.

a: poured from a 16oz can into a standard pint glass. clear amber in color with a thick, fluffy white head that never wants to go away. looks great.

s: smells about as good as a well crafted lager could be. lots of bread and biscuit malt aroma with a noticeable sweet and grassy finish.

t: loads of malt flavor. aforementioned notes of bread and biscuits are there along with a caramel malt sweetness. this is all quickly subdued with a slightly grassy and peppery hop character. alcohol adds a very gentle warming character to the brew, but its by no means noticeable on the palate.

m: finishes nice and dry, which makes you want to have more.

an excellent bock, which happens to be one of my favorite styles. this one tends to lean in the Helles direction and isn't as sweet as the dopplebock-like bocks out there. gotta love what narragansett is doing....makes me proud as a new englander...even if they're canned in Rochester NY.

Bought a log (1/6 barrel) for my home tap.

Love it. A great example of this style. Smooth, but flavorful, with a beautiful copper color and creamy head. Very drinkable session beer, but watch out because the abv will cach up with you.

Another nice seasonal from gansett. Get some while ou can.

Another surprise from Narragansett firs the porter now this. The beer pours A orangey yellow color with a decent head and good retention. The smell is sweet malts with a hint of hops. This beer is sweet medium bodied and very smooth an excellent maibock.
