Reviewed from notes (on tap at Otis Air Force Cape Cod on April 13, 2012):

In a pint glass (later served in a pilsener, nothing changed):

A: red/brown colored body with a small white head that looked pretty foamy as I watched the bartender try to dissipate the head to make sure I got a full beer. It left little lacing. I did not see any surfacing carbonation.

S: slightly roasty caramel malts (one really has to reach for those), mostly bland

T: some of the caramel, but was really pretty light for the most part. There was some bitter nuttiness in the taste that added a bit of sweetness, but really wasn't much

M: pretty thin and not much carbonation in the feel - a bit watery, very sessionable - too much?

O: well, I've had it before and wanted to accurately give a fair review. From what I've learned of bocks, this is not exactly what a bock is supposed to be. Maybe not bad for a cheaper beer, but nothing I think I need again at least not immediately.
