Notes: Leinenkugel’s Toasted Bock is our refreshing take on a traditional bock beer – a style that originated in southern Germany in the early seventeenth century. We combine German and American ingredients to create a light, smooth and slightly toasty version of a bock beer. We hope you love it as much as we do! - The Leinenkugel Family

3.74/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Look: transparent copper brown body. decent head that last awhile leaving some lacing.
Smell: roasted grain, sweet caramel malt
taste: A little roasted nut, grain, maybe a touch of wood, slightly roasted caramel/toffee, hint of stone washed dark fruit. smooth, slightly sweet but turns more bitter towards the finish. turns more roasty towards the finish and turns more roasty as it warms. I don't taste any chocolate but there might be a hint towards the finish. Hint of hop spice on the very end.
Feel; somewhat lighter body, but not thin for a 5.1% beer

Nothing heavy duty here. Easy drinking beer I think it's toasty roasty. 3.71/5

Spotted this unexpectedly at a local and took the chance on a rather expensive 6-pack -- for Leinenkugel, anyway. Best by 01.25.21 ink-jetted on the bottle neck.

L -- Pours a clear, deep chestnut color with copper highlights and a dense, off-white head.

S -- Earthy aroma with grainy and nutty notes. Maybe a little dark fruitiness, but no real ale-like esters. Mellow hop spiciness dominates, but not strongly.

T -- Earthy nuttiness up front, followed by distinct roasted (not toasted) malt character and a light touch of caramel. Maybe another touch of chocolate blended in, but not cloyingly sweet. Spicy hop bitterness in the finish, but the roasted malts command the aftertaste.

F -- Smooth, almost syrupy mouthfeel with a medium-robust body.

O -- Definitely along the lines of an old-fashioned U.S. seasonal Bock. Not very German in any character other than (maybe) the hop spiciness and the appearance. However, set your palate for a decent Porter and this one goes down nicely.

The low price for this brand helps to bring different styles to everyone, that said it’s a mild flavored Bock with some toasted notes. Not much aroma to be had but a nice head with good lace to follow, taste was nice but a little mild overall...still a nice brew to welcome the fall season.
