COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bayern Brewing is releasing a special new brew for summer: Dump Truck Summer Bock. When owner, President and Master Brewer, Jürgen Knöller, was working on the recipe for Bayern’s newest beer style, the summertime experience he had on a Bayern company raft trip guided by friends Wayne and Gia Fairchild from “Lewis & Clark Trail Adventures” came to mind. Since this light, bock style lager was going to have a higher alcohol content (over 6% ABV), overindulgence may produce undesired results – like flipping your raft on a Class VI rapid.

On tap. Pours cloudy yellow/straw color. White head that leaves light lacing. Sweet flavor balanced with hops, but sweet dominates with a slightly dry finish. Honey like aftertaste.

DuffMan (6514) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
Bottle. Hazy lemon yellow with a pillowy white head. Sweaty aroma initially, then light grainsand soft doughy yeast with fruity nuances. Grainy palate with light yeast and ripe pear. Crisp and clean. Very good actually.

nealblind (684) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Yeasty straw aroma. Thin bright foam head. Slight sour very doughy flavors yielding to assertive alcohol then honey flavors. It’s like drinking a biscuit with honey. This is a beer I’d consider marrying. I ended up rating this beer higher than what I would have expected but looking back I couldn’t justify giving it any less.
