look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear amber color, (thought it would be darker since it's a bock style) with a very small head that dissipates very rapidly. Smells sweat and grainy somewhat like a lager. Taste is refreshing and light, a lot of grain in the flavor with slight sweetness. Mouthfeel is very light almost no bitterness and maybe slightly savory.

Overall, had this on tap at a steakhouse... it was served in a frosted mug from a draft and I was actually blown away by how good it was. Picked up a sixer and the beer is refreshing but just ok. That said I believe this beer is best served very cold. For my next one, I have it in the snowbank and I'm gonna drink it right before it freezes.
