BOTTLE 33CL from Erzengel. Thanks, Gabriel!
Look: clear copper with a light beige head.
Aroma: strong light kilned malts and grains, some toffee. A trace of hops maybe?
Taste: light caramel sweetness balanced by quite some bitterness. Light bitter and long finish.
A simple, clean and very drinkable bock.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first new beer of the new year: A not so dark dunkler bock from the hometown of Einbeck that gave bock beer its name. Soft caramel malt aroma is average for the style, although I was surprised at the relatively light color of this beer, a rather translucent amber instead of the dark brown I would have expected. Taste is flavorful and balanced, featuring sweet maltiness with some earthy notes and mild dark fruits, but clean dark malt tasting for the most part. Maybe a touch of cocoa in the finish. Very enjoyable and authentic, and not too heavy. A classic bock.
