Meet the first in our new Hop Kitchen series: A German-style springtime lager brewed with rye then loaded with Hallertauer, Perle and Fuggle hops for a spicy, earthy aroma. This Hoppy Bock Lager offers a medium body and slightly sweet malt character perfect for your spring hop-fling.

Bomber: Wonderful grassy, hellertau hop aroma off the top, It’s almost candy like. Appearance is a clear golden with a huge white head that lingers for quite a while. Taste has got the really nice resin like hop texture, a slight light bit of malts on the backend. Some citrus and an overall nice texture. Not too heavy in the mouth with an aftertaste of the hellertau and some light dryness. Overall, Really good stuff. Cheers!

Bottle. Aroma is spicy with sweet malt, soft floral hops and caramel. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, earthy hops, soft floral notes, fruit notes and softer rye notes. Body is medium with a dense, bubbly carbonation. Ends slightly bitter with more caramel, malt notes, soft earthiness, light floral notes, hints of fruit and light spiciness.

ElGaucho (2201) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Bomber. Nondescript lager aroma. Crystal clear gold with a thick frothy mostly white head. Flavor is much more interesting than the aroma would suggest. Peppery and moderately hoppy. Quite lovely.

The spice of the hops and the spice of he rye fight each other here and mess it all up. In fact every beer I have had from new Belgium since the early years of la folie has been messed up. I swore them off a while ago and this beer is reminding me to abandon them again. Do not spend money here it sucks and every new beer they come out with will suck as well.

johnnyoski (434) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Bomber. Clear golden pour with a two finger, foamy white head. Subtle aromas of citrus, yeast and rye. Initial sweet flavor with light spices turned to a sharp, soapy finish. Well carbonated with a dry texture. Refreshing but wasn’t crazy about how these ingredients blended together.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Light orange pour with a small white head. Nice spicy rye element. Good hop bite. Not a ton of depth, but good.
