Pours a light golden color with a soapy white head and lacing. Aroma is very floral and pine like with bready undertones. In the taste, floral and bitter, with a sweet honey baked bread malt flavor. Well balanced and easily approachable, this golden bock is best enjoyed in a warmer climate. The body is on the light side of medium with a solid carbonation. Overall, this hits the spot when you're looking for a easy drinking lager with a firm hoppy finish.
