…with this beer. Surely Dan Gladden can’t be wrong, can he? This beer pours into the glass as a dark amber color with a nice, off-white two-finger head that quickly disappears. It sure looks pretty. Caramel malts are in the aroma, however slight. Not much else there other than some other sweetness in the aroma. So far so good… it’s a bock, after all, right? The taste is sweet… a little caramel comes through, but not really much more aside from the alcohol bite. There’s not much body, either.
I imagine that I would have liked this when I was younger, back in the day when our local watering hole featured “Schmidt Dark” and when Michelob Amber Bock actually seemed interesting to me. It’s a clean beer, just not for me.
