Genesee Bock brewed by Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. This brew has an ABV of 5.20% The bock pours out a nice light brown color , with a nice off white head. This brew smells, sweet, with grains and malts. You also pick up some hops at the end. The taste is bold with flavor. There is some sweetness .malts, and grains. Genesee Bock has a nice smoothness to it. There is a lot going on in this brew, but there is nothing overpower about it. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. There is nothing bad about the mouthfeel of this brew. I like how smooth this brew goes down. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.50 out 5. Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. did a nice job with this one. I would buy this brew again.

Love this beer mainly for the can but the beer itself is pretty good too. So much better than all other Genny beers.

The Genesee Brewing Company did a great job with this.
It's clear not heavy, easy to drink.
Very nice bock at a great price.

I always wait and buy a few cases every year.

Pours a wonderful copper brown. Has hues of amber and gold and has a creamy persistent head of off white foam. Nose is malty. Soft round bready malt with a touch of sweetness. No hops scent except for the idea of grass. There's corn on this nose as it's part of the malt character but it does not smell like corny sweetness. It has a light scent to the nose. The taste is excellent. Clean, a touch sweet with a bit of caramel. Has no hop flavors. Really excellent and no bitterness form hops either. They are a part of the mouthfeel though as they dry on the palate lightly in the crisp finish. The corn does lighten the flavor while it is not excessively sweet. In the finish it's crisp, just dry and lingers softly and sweetly. Not cloying, nodiacetyl which is often just a slickness without a heavy buttery taste, and has no alcohol on the palate. The only criticism I have is that I think the corn keeps it from being as malty rich as it might have been without it . But it is very well done and adds lightness to the flavor and drinkability. The mouthfeel is thinner side of medium.
