500ml swing-top bottle. Pours a very hazy copper with a fluffy white head that leaves great lacing. Big caramel malt aroma with a hint of brown sugar. Bready. Sweet taste, again with plenty of caramel malt. Grassy hops are really evident in the back; they do a great job of balancing this. Roasty and earthy. Great, really dry finish. Full body. This is an outstanding bockbier.

A new German bock beer on the shelves around here,I see no one has reviewed it either as of yet.Poured into a pilsner a dull bronze color with a few chunkies and floaties swirling at the bottom of the glass,a fluffy quick to fade white head atop.Caramel and toasted grain stand out most in the nose with a hint of iron.A solid but unspectacular beer on the palate,toasty with buttery caramel tones with a hit of anise-like flavors in the finish.Lighter mouthfeel for the style but its not near watery,a nice easy drinking bock beer here from Franconia.

Casey showcased this beer a couple months back but I missed the Social that week. I picked a bottle up the following week and am giving it a try on a Sunday afternoon.

I can smell the malts from a couple feet away as I start typing the review. Up close, they're not as strong as I would expect but have some backbone. I'm getting a little toffee note in there. The Lisberger presents a cloudy amber color with a frothy head that is soon gone to a nice ring. now. This is a wonderfully smooth beer with great balance. Just a little alcohol tingle in the finish gives a hint of its 7%. Very dry in flavor and extremely drinakable. I really like this beer!

500ml flip top bottle with a generic sticker on the back.

Pours a deep copper color with hints of orange and a thin white head. It is crystal clear.

The smell has a light offensive odor at first but then it goes to caramally malts, not much hops.

The taste is much better than the smell, with a thick malt flavor, light toastiness and roastiness, and a pinch of hoppy bitterness. The hops don't add much to the flavor though.

The alcohol isn't too noticeable, the mouthfeel is nice.

Overall a good beer.

Hmm, kind of an odd bock. Bottle opened with a modest "pop". Poured with a modest off white to cream colored head and no lace. Color is a hazy to lightly cloudy medium amber. Aroma is malt caramel toffee and a bit of fruit. Flavor has some significant hop both citrus and pine, along with the aroma qualities. Body is ok but carbonation is fairly heavy and complimentary. Finish is like flavor. Ok beer.

Poured from a swingtop bottle this pours a caramel color with about a quarter inch head. The lacing on the glass does not last as you drink it. It smells bready and a bit prunish with caramiel flavors. I see nothing on the bottle indicating the ABV. It's imported by Shelton Brothers in MA. Not a bad beer but not the best bock I've had. Drinkable, but not running to buy more.

A few weeks ago I was a beer short of a sixer so I picked up a Samuel Adams Double Bock.
Today I was at the store, saw the Lisber, and fingered I'd give a more traditional Bock a try.
This beer has a nice balance for a brew with so much malt. This is my second Bock (I'm more of an IPA or Porter hound) and the first Bock I tried was too a bit heavy on the sweetness.
The Lisber pours with a minimal head and the bottle is of the traditional cap, so on the plus side you buy an awesome decoration for on top of the fridge which the wife just loves to see. Not, yet, I find it quite ascetically pleasing.
You will note brown sugar and malt notes.

Poured just a trace of dirty soap suds head. The body looks dull and flat, like a pale cider, or dirty dishwater. The smells is nice malt but not anything else. The taste mirrors the smell but actually is not as strong. The finish is slightly bitter and has nutty attributes. The texture is a touch creamy and about medium weight. Decent bock but doesn't blow me away.
