The Puntigamer Winterbier is a bottom fermented, amber coloured Vollbier and is clearly more lighter and pleasant than conventional "Bock beers". Brewed especially for winter, it’s concentrated to a higher alcohol content using the ice beer method. With its light note of caramel it provides during the winter days a beery drinking treat. 13.8°

0.5l bottle purchased at some Spar near Leibnitz
This poured a nice bronze colour with a bedium sized head. Unimpressive malty/grainy nose. The taste is weak. A pleasant, chewy mild hopiness (that was lemony and/or metallic at times) is the focal point of this one and it continues nicely into the aftertaste, and I dig that. One can, however feel just a week, "skittish" crude malty, maaaaybe even alcoholic taste. The taste differs a lot from the crude alcohol-crude bitterness assault I recieved from some other Austrian pale bocks, and it’s understandable, as this isn’t exactly a true bock but an ice beer. So "ordinary" and yet it eludes most conventional categories.
