Purchased a growler at the Rockford, Illinois Granite City location.

Appearance: A brownish red amber color. A very solid thin head was present throughout drinking. More lacing on the glass then I would have expected. A very clear body on this brew, no murky sediment.

Smell: Nothing impressive here. There is a slight hazelnut, light chocolate, caramel, malt aroma. Have to really dig to appreciate what is going on here though.

Taste: A nutty bite greets the drinker. The body of this brew is a very sweet malt/caramel flavor. The flavors die away quicker then I would have hoped, leave a slight hop tart presence on the palette. The body is a little thin.

Mouthfeel: Really solid here. The sweetness covers the palette. Very light feeling to this brew but does not feel lacking.

Overall: Being a little snobby about my beer, I had pretty low expectations for this beer. I was pleasantly surprised with a solid easy drinking Bock. The growler is a nice size to share with some friends and enjoy a very good beer. Nothing elite but is still very enjoyable.
