3.38/5 rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a clear gold with a pillowy white head. Plenty of effervescence is noticeable in the glass. A glowing, lively-looking ale.
S: Very nondescript and relatively lager-like. Grain, grass, lemon, and honey are detectable once the beer warms a bit.
T: Notes of grain, lemon, white pepper, cream, biscuits, honey, grass, and herbs are accompanied by a strong punch of alcohol. The finish is intoxicating and peppery with lemon, honey, and alcohol notes underscored by a delicate graininess.
M: Full-bodied, very dry, and prickly. The active carbonation is a bit distracting, while the insistent and fiery alcoholic character of this beer renders it less than drinkable. A little out of whack.
O: This is a move in the right direction for Bockor, a brewery that has (in my opinion) played it safe for far too long. This beer's clean, sterile character reminds me of some of the older commercial Belgian pale ales (Ginder Ale and Vieux Temps among others). Though this is not the best strong pale ale one is likely to have, it is still a pretty nice beer in its own right.

A: Clear bright yellowish gold beer. Mostly clear with a trace of cloudiness. Left a large white billowy head that slowly receded.
S: Mothballs. Yeah, a bit musky. Also a big golden wheat smell with a steely carbonic note.
T: Starts off big syrupy sweet with honey. Big musk notes shines through the middle with a mellow yellow raisin, prune and big oak flavor. Finishes greasy and oily. With a little iron and steel mineral.
M: Big, wide, heavy and mouth coating. Finishes with a mild tanginess that wipes most of it clean. Not all.
O: Had some great developed dried fruitiness, but a little too much funk and musk over it. It cuts into the refreshing aspect, but it's still tasty.

Clear gold with intense carbonation resulting in a head that sticks around until the glass is empty! The carbonation is quite interesting to watch as it spirals up from the center of the glass when served in it's own glassware.
The aroma is a bit of a letdown after watching the pour and it's result. Some citrus notes, malts with a touch of yeast.
A nice refreshing and crisp brew. Much less hoppy than expected and the alcohol is barely present.
Light bodied and has a bit of a bite in its aftertaste.
Had this on a whim and it sure paid dividends!
Serving type: on-tap
