look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Came to me with a 3 finger fizzy head. The head was slightly tan. The overall appearance was a deep, translucent amber.

S- There was a nutty aroma to this on the whole. A little malt in there, but nor hops scent.

T- Was fairly disappointed with the taste. Some grassy flavors and a slight nutty flavor. No hops bitterness in there, but some malt tastes.

M- Lots of carbonation. Really light for the style. It was almost watery and went down fairly easy.

Overall, I was not impressed with this beer. It was very light in the mouthfeel category and the taste was just lacking. I was surprised to learn this is a bock, because it is one of my more favored styles, but I was sorely disappointed.

A - Perfectly clear amber brew with a sudsy off white head with good retention.

S - Bready smell with some spice. Peppery, ginger aroma.

T - Nice malty backbone stands up well to the spices. Creates a nicely balanced beer. Spices are ginger and cinnamon mostly.

M - Nice feel, just the right amount of carbonation. Medium body, easy to put back a few of these at a sitting.

O - Overall a good winter beer. I pick this up every year, and it is a staple at a lot of local places. Not overwhelming but solid
