This is one of our rare lagers brewed in the style of the German Heiliges Geist Bock, or Holy Ghost Bock. The nane refers to the lighter nature of the beer as opposed to the darker and heavier Dopple Bock and Mai Bock also brewed during the spring in Germany. There is a rich malt flavor, a firm German style lager head, and a clean lagered finish to this beer.

this really isnt that special to me. Grainy, somewhat sweet, tart ripe fruits, hints of caramel, cream and apples. Dense creamy off white top to a vibrant amber body. Soft, ceramy mouthfeel exits dry with some stickyness. Sweet caramel and rather bland. some woody notes and dry grains reamain.

Alphadelic (2171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Super hazy peachy orange colored beer with a good white head. The nose is mild and sweet while in the mouth it is very flavorsome. Smooth, doughy and grassy flavors coming from a seamless mingling of hip and barley. Hints of light orange and mango. Not much of a finish to it.

Hazy amber with minimal head and good lacings. Interesting flavors. Sweet malts with a slightly bitter hop profile. A bit of sweet and sour going on here. A refreshing brew that was quite enjoyable.

From a 12 oz. bottle--a distinctive burnt sienna/copper colored lager with an outstanding malt taste and pleasing hop undertones. Though it is debatable whether this bock is a "true lager" as noted by the brewery, the hint of apple in this beer is far from overbearing. This bock finishes quite smooth though a little dull.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Pale gold, tons of lacing, very sticky, light head. A bit of malts in the aroma, some caramel & alcohol. Flavor has lots of light fruit with a touch of light malts. Quenching & true to style but a bit lacking in the finish, almost watery.

bhensonb (14172) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2007
LIght aroma of darker malt. Barely detectable hop. Amber color with an off-white head that is almost respectable. Low carbonation. Starts with sweet malt, though not dark, and there seems to be a bit of lemon. There is not much bitter, so it’s more about malt. The beer sort of drops off. The malt and flavor go away. The mouth is left with some sour/citrus, some herb/veg, but no real bitterness. It is what it is.

Bottle:   Amberish, slight haze, a little fiery and dark, thin sudsy off-white head, dies quickly, sparce lacing.   Sweet mealy nose, slight breadiness, a bit of unripened melon.   Really mealy on the tongue.   Some biscuit and breadiness, pale fruitiness.   Seems a little heavy in its sweetness, but not really in body.   As it warms I get some alcohol coming out.   Somewhat sticky.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit its a bit sugary and clingy.   Its okay, but seems a little unrefined.   Not all that smooth, and certainly wouldnt reach for another after finishing this 22oz.   A little too sweet in my opinion.

355ml bottle pours dark amber in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is bready malts and caramel with mild hops. Taste is big malty sweetness with a little hop bitterness in the finish. Lacking a little in the balance of flavors, but still a drinkable brew, just not as good as it could be.
