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.
