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.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazy yellow amber color with a huge head of billowy white head. The head fades very fast at first, but then persists with it slowly fading to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma of the brew is big of a bready and somewhat wheaty smell with a grand showing of a yeasty aroma. There is also a good level of a lemon citrus as well as a little bit of a hop aroma of floral and grassy nature wiht a little bit of pepper smell. Taste – The taste starts with a sweeter malty taste beginning very bready with the sweet being a mix of a more candied taste as well as a good showing of a light fruity nature. A little bit of a yeasty flavor and some wheat develop as the taste moves on from the start. There is also a coming of some light grassy and haylike flavors that come to the tongue more toward the end. With a little bit of an increase in the sweet and some floral flavors that come to the tongue, one is left with a sweet, but still somewhat crisp flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side for a 6 % abv. brew with a carbonation level that is rather high. The thick body really accentuates the malt and sweet nicely all while the carbonation level makes for a very refreshing brew. Overall – A very flavorful and somewhat sweeter helles which is still very easy drinking and enjoyable. A rather tasty brew and one to try if you get a chance.

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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is earthy and slightly skunky. Taste is slightly sour, and feels light on the palate. Meh - not my sort of thing.

Good but not my usual style of beer. Bayern makes great beers though. Well worth a try

DuffMan (7397) - 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 (972) - 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.
