3.2/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: pours a clear tawny amber with an offwhite head that leaves some faint lacing
S: grainy nutty cereal malts with some toasty bread and carmel sweetness, some earthiness
T: sweet malts, toasted pumpernickle bread, not much complexity even for a bock, slightly spicy and herbal but not much hop flavor, some alcohol is detectable as it warms
M: medium body low carbonation
D: This beer is pretty drinkable however I find it boring and uninspired.
I'm not a huge fan of this style but this is probably one of the least flavorful bocks I've had. I've had a few Leinenkugels and I was very unimpressed by their fruit beers and their seasonals, that said I liked this better than any of their other beers I've tried
