3.6/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

poured from the 12 oz bottle into my new belgium goblet:

A = copper/orange - super clear, and light head settles quick the a thin film , NO LACING at all.

S gentle , understated (read WEAK) malty to the nose

T about the same as above ^ a nice malty taste but nothing further

M solid, standard carbonation, no ABV on the palate

D good sessioner IMHO - dive in deep to this standard beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Pours a deep copper, nearly clear, with a fair amount of lively carbonation and a thin tan head that fades fairly quickly.

S: Rich toasty malts, a touch of grassy hops. Clean, like a lager should be, with just a hint of yeast esters. Not a huge nose outside of the bready malts though.

T: Clean flavors - toasted malts with slight sweet yeast esters and sweetness from the malts. Finishes as it fades into a touch of grassy or floral hop bitterness. Flavor a bit disappointing as the malts don't live up to the nose.

M: Light body, decent carbonation sensation, and low alcohol presence.

O: An easy drinker, and maybe a good gateway for someone getting into craft beer, but not the best Bock available for sure. Nothing offensive, but nothing to seek out.
