COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eisbock was a spirited, full-bodied amber beer, handcrafted of a pale bock recipe popular throughout Europe for Springtime celebrations. It was the first offering in a new seasonal line produced by Coors Brewing Company. Eisbock was brewed in the style of the German Maibocks, producing a paler bock with less hop bitterness and a flavorful, full body that is easier to drink than many American bocks. Carefully brewed with an imported amber malt that was custom-roasted to Coors' exact specifications and with lots of imported German hops, Eisbock was slowly fermented and aged in ice cold cellars.

Eisbock was introduced March 1994 and discontinued May 1994. The alcohol content was 5.75% by volume.

12oz bottle ’generously’ shared by egajdzis. Poured a medium and ’dirty’ amberish-brownish color with no head. Aromas of ginger, cardboard, and band-aids. Tastes of wet cardboard, tea, and band-aids. Thin and watery. What an experience! Still better than most of coors other offerings...

Poured a murky brown color with a thin ring of off white bubbles, no lacing. Aroma was smoky, with oxidized sherry, ginger, wood, and light caramel. Taste was cardboard, with tea leaf, caramel, wood, tobacco, and very light carbonation. I’d say these bottles are not good (anymore?)

Found this beer in the back of my uncles fridge. It was in there awhile but that didn’t stop me. The beer held up pretty well. Some nice maltiness in it. Flavor was pretty decent to. I was surprised by this beer.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2009 Was very good, but not the best. Sad to see it no longer brewed, could have been a hit in the us

I was very pleased with this brew. Pleasant aroma, poured nicely, had exceptional smoothness ,(especially for a bock) and really packed one hell of a whallop. One of the better products in the Coors line in my opinion.
