Straw in color. Sweet hoppiness with tropical fruit flavors and mild dry hoppiness on the finish.

The body is probably a little hearty for the style but, then again, I don;t think that this beer is really designed to be brewed to the traditional style

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden. Pours cloudy yellow with a half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light ring around the edge, leaving small webs of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smells of bready malt, light hop resin, bit of yeast and not a whole lot else honestly. Taste is pretty much the same with plenty of chewiness and light hop bitterness backing it up. Chewy, lightly hoppy feel is as expected.

Overall an ok pale bock. Honestly I was expecting more hops from the description. One and done for me, way to many other beers to choose from.
