SA seasonal on tap, I assume it's mostly fresh. This pours an amber color with a finger thick off white head which has good retention. The smells are malty, some toffee, nutty, caramel and a hint of molasses. The feel is medium ish. The taste is good enough similar to the smells, a little nutty toffee with other malts low hop bite.
Serving type: on-tap

A - Pours a deep ruby with two fingers of off white head. Leaves decent lacing.
S - Corn adjunct ( weird ), slight cinnamon, and even slighter ginger. The nose is definitely lacking for a Bock.
T - Some weird adjunct up front for a split second, followed by a good amount of orange and wheat. Extremely slight malt and no hops present. A very solight ginger makes it's way in to the finish. Pretty one dimensional to be honest.
M - Extremely heavy body, with heavy carbonation. So heavy on both parts that it almost makes you choke.
O - Overall, I expected this beer to at least be " good ", but it disappointed me, as it was pretty much a slighty up-flavored cheap lager. I would not buy it again. Hell, I've had adjunct's with a better mouthfeel than this.
