Nice that they played the first three letters of their brewery with Lager. Too bad they don't brew more lagers.
Poured from a bomber to a Pilz glass. No date found, FU Lagunitas, how can you avoid this for all your success?
For me, best looking beer of the month. Amber color, gorgeous head, fine lacing, tiny bubbles for the whole glass. Beutiful lacing to the bottom also. If it wasn't for the color I would swear this was a German Pilz.
Minimal aroma. Kind of sweet, but not in a malty sense.
Taste is clean with strong hop character, mild malt. Alcohol makes itself known. That's a good thing because you could slam this thing if it wasn't there as a reminder.
Pretty good beer all and all.

I am not abit surprised, but this bock is pretty inaccurate to the style and instantly recognizable as a Lagunitas brew. Why is that with nearly all their products?

It pours kind of golden (darker would be more accurate). It smells like Lagunitas.

The taste is malty, for sure, but mostly signature Lagunitas hops and water. The aftertaste lingers nice and bitter and malty on the tongue.

When I bought this I figured it would be a big Lag styled brew, and it neither surprised or disappointed.

Recommended, if you want a Lag styled beer that may be something like a bock.

Served in a lager glass from a 22 oz bottle.
Pours with a clear copper colored body topped by a creamy beige head. Very good retention and lacing.
Malty and boozy aroma typical of style. The flavor is true to style as well. Mildly bitter. Moderately strong.

Picked up a bomber on 7-2-17 from TW Arrowhead for $4.99. Quick check reveals no bottle date.

Beer poured amber brown with a very nice off white head with the initial pour.

Nose is interesting with a piney and light citrus hop profile that dominates as the beer warms.

Taste is caramel laagered malts forward blending nicely with the pine and citrus hops that keep this nicely balanced.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall this is definitely an unconventional lager. If you are looking for traditional avoid. Tasty smooth brew for hop loving palettes.

Came a caramel colored body with a rather fluffy off white head atop.Aromas upfront of caramel and dough with a assertive floral and citric hop shot,a little different but not bad.Caramel dominates the palate early with pine and and citrus-like hops hitting home in the finish.I liked the beer but the big hops might not be the best thing in the bock style,just my opinion.
