Notes/Commercial Description:
Emerging from springtime’s fertile ground, Cultivator celebrates the start of hop-growing season as sprawling fields of hop rhizomes climb and tether to hop bines. This spring bock delivers hints of toasted grains, fresh baked bread and delicate floral hops. #1 of 4 in our Hop Cycle seasonal series.

poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. Dating was illegible.

Looking really nice. Crystal clear pale golden yellow, excellent carbonation. Small white head which dissipated somewhat, but maintained throughout. Lacing was minimal.

Very nice aroma too. Yeasty, fainlty floral, hay, and a light sweetness.

Taste didn't quite live up to the nose. lager yeast, sweet, and a light hop bite at the very end.

Mouth was a touch below medium.

Overall, this is a nice beer to have on a warm summer evening. 6.9, but very drinkable. I'm not one for bocks, too many other styles I much prefer, but this was enjoyable.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through be the glass.

Smell: Bready and toasted grains, some sweetness, lager yeast, and grassy hops.

Taste: Definitely toasted grains with sweet notes, some hop bitterness, lager yeast, and herbal and grassy hops.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: This is a style I am starting to enjoy more. You should be able to drink this year round.
