I had this on tap at Barcade in Philadelphia, served chilled in a pint.

The color is medium amber with light haze and thick white cream with good retention and fine bead. The smell is malty with a nutty mildly sweet aroma and mild alcohol presence with a fruity ester. The texture is balanced with malt and moderate carbonation with mild spice and subtle dry toasted and clean dry medium bodied finish has a spiced hop element.

The flavor is great as the bock has the appropriate toasted maltiness you expect with woody hops and a very mild caramel accent with hint of nuttiness and gentle yeast flavor adding to the complexity with a traditional lager finish. Overall a wonderful beer, a very well crafted bock that is enjoyable to drink.

Pours a light copper color with a soapy white head with plenty of lace. Aroma of bready malts and faint toffee. Little hop bitterness or alcohol flavor, just a very clean German malt character. Medium bodied and well carbonated, full flavored and rich. Overall, a nice clean American made German bock perfect for enjoying the fall season.
