330 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass. Advertised as 5.2% ABV.

Appearance - Clear golden colour with just over a finger of white head. This dissipates quickly leaving some soapy head on top. While not bubbly there are quite a few bubbles present.

Smell - Slight creamed corn aroma, also a grassy bite similar to a good pilsner. Not much else, but nothing off putting either.

Taste - Watery with very little flavour. Slight grainy taste but not much else. Again nothing off putting.

Mouthfeel - Watery, medium carbonation. Otherwise not much to comment on.

Overall - for the style this actually isn't bad. Would drink again if I was limited to adjunct lagers.

Wait a minute... this isn't a bock? Aw man. Giving it a go anyway haha.

Poured from the 12oz can into a pint glass.

A: Typical pale yellow with a fizzy white head that gos down pretty quickly.

S: Very faint with some grain in there. Not much to say.

T: Very mild with plenty of grain in there. Not too bad and pretty smooth. Nothing really to note. Pretty beery and straightforward. Refreshing.

Overall, not too much to say. I bought it expecting a bock, and what I got was an easy drinking light lager. Not bad for what it is, but won't pick up again.

3.38/5  rDev +20.3%

A: Pale colour but on the darker side of euro lagers, clear, minimal head, no lacing. S: Malt, minimal hop content, fairly pleasant for Euro Pale Lager, hint of yeast. T: Sweet, very malt forward, some fruity notes. M: Light body, initially well carbonated but faded along with the crispness. O: For what it is it’s pretty good, no noticeable ajunct content.

Served in a bottle at Peculier Pub in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some faint hints of light golden yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fluffy white head that quickly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of sweet adjunct malts are present with corn and grains standing out.

T: Moderate flavors of sweet malts with a lot of grain and corn adjuncts. No hop flavors or bitterness are perceptible.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly smooth.

O: A very offering for the style - not offensive but probably not interesting (or good) enough to warrant trying again.

Bottle at Peculiar Pub, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a slight amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Faint aromas of sweet corn adjuncts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of sweet malts and corn adjuncts. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer goes down easily, but there's nothing special about the taste. It's a run of the mill Euro Pale Lager.

2.21/5  rDev -21.4%

This bottle was received as a gift. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 11.2 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear straw color, with about a finger's worth of white fluffy head and moderate visible carbonation.

S: Pilsner malts, graininess, corn, and just a bit of grassiness in the background.

T: Pretty standard grainy corn AAL lager flavors, moderate pilsner malt sulfur. Nothing to make it stand out from the myriad of other AALs around.

M: Light thin body, alcohol is well-hidden, and carbonation sensation on the low side.

O: Despite its name, this shares no characteristics of any Bock I am familiar with. Really just not a good beer.
