really sweet for the style, i like my bock beers, especially the spring ones, to be quite a bit drier than this. too bad too, because the other flavors are outstanding. always have known these guys more for their english styles than their german ones. bright golden in color, yellow even, extremely clear and light, with a full inch of expansive bone white head. it smells and tastes like sweet pils and special german malts, cerealy, but honey sweet, a little floral, and less like lager yeast than i thought it would. there is a bready pils grain aspect to this that really stands out, and there is a sort of clover honey blooming springtime vibe that i love, but there is too much sweetness in it for the style, and with the alcohol just a little exposed, it makes it hard to drink even a whole pint of this for me. its a little light in body for the depth of flavor as well. interesting that the bartender here was so high on this one, i thought it was my least favorite of the four or five beers i had here at the brewery. less classically german, some nice wrinkles, but not as well put together as most of their others.
