COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lighter in color than traditional Bock beers. Munich malt gives Stein Bock its truly unique taste.

BASED ON NOTES from about two years ago, when I first had this (so take this for what it's worth). The brewery, I'm told, has since gone out of business. For the quality of beer these guys were making, I always thought the six packs were overpriced, but I'm no marketing expert. Packaging and reputation made me think I was getting a primo craft brew, but it was really pretty ordinary (though not terrible) craft brew. Here goes: Sweet and fruity, but not as full feeling (body, mouthfeel) as other bocks I've tried. It's like a bock trying to be something else. Too much sweetness and not enough crispness from hops.

Overly sweet in both the start and the finish. Lacking in the smoothness and cleanliness that for me makes bocks good. Kind of clumsy and too fruity.
