3.68/5 rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75
Poured into a pils glass.
4.0 A: Clear golden yellow color. Three fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is pretty good and a great deal of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Grassiness through and through. Hay, floral and earthy hops, moderate neutral malt sweetness, and that lager yeast smell.
3.5 T: Taste is like the nose. Grass, hay, floral and earthy hops, sticky neutral maltiness. Moderate doughiness and could be a bit cleaner, but good enough.
4.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Velvety viscousness with plenty of creaminess. Very nice here.
3.75 D: Good beer with no real flaws. The mouthfeel is awesome.

Thanks to BA slatetank for gifting me with a bottle of this. The brew pours as advertised, a pale golden color with a rich finger of silky head that fades to a thin film across the top and paints an entire webbing of lacing effect on the glass. Rising bubbles of carbonation maintain a thin film across the top and a swirl revives a finger of yellowish stained froth fairly effortlessly.
The aroma smells like any old adjunct lager. A hint of almost corn-like sweetness blends into a bit of fresh cereal grain to wheaty character which was a bit unexpected for a bock I might say. A mild kiss of alcohol and buttery diacetyl bring this back into the lager spectrum with a pleasant contrast. When the glass is swirled, some sulfur notes evolve along with an unexpected amount of herbal hops. Overall, not a bad smelling brew.
The taste of this brew is a bit more focused with some fruity alcohol esters coming forward overtop a pale malt base that provides some mild sweet grainy appeal. However, I get a mild touch of adjunct almost like corn also in the flavor but that might be an exaggeration based off of the notes of diacetyl and mild sulfur that also emit from this brew. The hops present themselves with an herbal flavor and modest bitterness a bit atypical of a bock.
This is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall I think it wasnt bad but there were a lot of strange things going on in this that hinted towards bock but with a strange twist. A bit over-hopped, a bit more alcohol driven and lacking in the overall body one might expect. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to try this one Matt, thanks again.
