I was lucky enough to receive this from hoppymeal, thanks again Derek! Michigan Brewing's Rye Bock pours a deep golden with a highlight here and there leaning toward copper. Light sediment is suspended throughout. A finger worth of bubbly slightly off white head formed on the pour and as the bubbles burst fell to a thin cap that left some small spots of lace after each drink.

This beer smells like there's a good deal of rye used in the brewing. I'm hit right off the bat with lightly toasted malts and a touch of sweet bread. There's a touch of orchard fruit, such as peach and pear, flashing through quickly before the spicy rye and alcohol hit the nose. This bock smells really nice.

The flavor follows exactly what the aroma suggested. Lightly toasted grains start things off and are quickly met with a hint of tripel like orchard fruits before the spicy rye and alcohol mixture kick in. The rye is unique enough but the fruitiness really adds a great depth. I'm really enjoying the flavor of this beer.

The body is moderate but feels lighter with the decent amount of carbonation present. This beer really flows through easily. The carbonation is smooth and subtle but pushes this brew through easily.

This is a very good, flavorful, sessionable beer. I would love to be able to pick these up down the street; they'd be a mainstay in the fridge.

This is a tasty rye bock. My first from Michigan Brewing Co. and definitely not my last. They will be a new stop on my next trip up North. Thanks for the treat Derek!
