3.58/5 rDev -1.9%
Big golden amber brew with a nice foamy cap in the tall tulip. Nice nose of flowery hops and a hint of carnations.
Rather sweet as you'd expect. Sprightly carbonation but kind of a flat mouthfeel. On the heavier side, and seems stronger than the ABV. Rather sharp and a little woody. Malty and buttery as it warms up. Strong and sweet, but that's the style. Clean and well made.
From the 12 oz bottle purchased at the pretentious market by George Washington University.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a tan color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts and hops. Taste is a bit hoppy for the style, malts are there, well balanced, a touch of bitterness at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

A- Golden transparent body with bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Thick off-white head.
S- Light malt aroma with some citrus/tropic fruit notes. Fresh grass/straw also in the nose.
T- Malt is in balance with the fruity taste, somewhat of an apricot flavor.
M- Smooth creamy body with good carbonation.
O- Very good representation of the style with a lot of springtime flavors.'

Appearance: pours a orange yellow color with a one inch head that falls to a spotty foam.
Smell: caramel sweetness and a bit of hop bitterness.
Taste: moderate malt base with caramel, light fruit sweetness, a bit of earthiness, and a mild hop presence.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp to start, smooth and a bit dry at the finish. Short lasting aftertaste.
Overall: a nice bock beer that has enough malty goodness to keep it interesting. Worthy of a try.

First surprise is not many reviews as this ones been on the shelf since January. Second it's its a damn drinkable bock!
A - Looks like a bock it's a bit lighter amber color with a 1/4 inch of tan head.
S - Smells of citrus hops, mild malts mostly caramel and some roast.
T - Taste is just a slightly hoppier than your average day bock but it's damn good overall.
M - Puzzled how it's almost 8% when I figured it was 5 or even 6%. Little alcohol and a medium body.
Overall not something I would seek out again but not a bad crafted bock. Heck even 4 months lager delivering a good head!

I had this on-tap at the dulles taproom.
Appearance: pours a golden clear amber with a finger of fluffy off white head and good retention.
Smell: spiice and fruit, sweet malt and some banana.
Taste: spice and banana, quite sweet from the grain, sweet spice in the finish.
Mouthfeel: medium body with fluffy carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: the banana was nice, good and i would have it again.
