3.45/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz can poured into a shaker pint glass. Batch 0132 0735 on bottom of can.

Appearance: Clear dark-copper amber color. Off white to light tan thin head across the top with a few chunks of persistent lacing here and there.

Smell: Mild toasted malt and caramel, with a hint of something metallic in at the end. Quite mild in aroma, took some swirls to get what I'm describing.

Taste: Malty, mild toasted malt with some caramel notes. Mild bitter finish, a bit grainy, a bit metallic.

Mouthfeel: A bit watery. Decent carbonation just below fizzy.

Overall / Drinkability: For the price ($8.52 after tax for a 12 pack) a very good deal for a beer with some good character to it, just not really good character. Quite drinkable, but not very noteworthy either. I've had better Bock beers, but this one is reasonably good for the price.

look: 2.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

12oz can into a pint glass. Very cool can design btw. Pours a crystal clear darkish brown with a half finger off-white head. Poor head retention and lacing but I really wasn’t expecting a whole to out of this beer. Aroma has burnt caramel, toffee, and some molasses. Perhaps a touch of corn as well. More caramel on the taste along with molasses and a quick whiff of alcohol. Light corn with a little grassy hop character. Slightly sticky with very little bitterness and a bit of a thin mouthfeel. Overall, while this is far from a great beer or a good example of the style, it is very refreshing and quite tasty considering the price. A beer I like to pick up every spring.

Poured a 12 ounce can into a pint glass.

A - Poured a very clear copper color with a fluffy initial head that retreated to a thin lace for the entire beer.

S - Slightly fruity with some roasted grains.

T - Sweet cooked grains with some hops and fruitiness.

M - Tart and tangy with good carbonation and a sweet finish.

O - A decent bock beer that hits all the right marks. They only bring it out in January and it's worth stocking up a 12 pack or two if you like this style.
