Left Hand Rye Bock Lager

Style and Glass: Dunkler Bock, Mug; Snifter
ABV, Volume & Calories: 7.7% in 25.36 fl oz. estimated at 400 C
Purchased at: Canal’s Lawrenceville, NJ for $2.79 (down from $14 ea — I picked up 6 for $15 — madmen there, and they better stay nutso)

Aroma: very nice, inviting, flowery, rye, bready, wheaty, grassy, meadow, rain.

Visuals: interesting label, like an aged iced tea, deep murky brown, cloudy, thick off white head, sticky lace.

Taste: very well balanced, brown ale, sage, onions, rye, roses, tea, chai, some hops, medium strength.

Palate: very nice, smooth oily texture, medium, light, tasty finish.

Overall: A summery brew, refreshing, very enjoyable. A repeat, 6x at least. Maybe my favorite bock so far. Amazing value — makes me wonder why the run on the price. well crafted.
