COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich Amber Bock brewed with Vienna and Munich malts. Pure lager yeast ferments this beer to create a deep malty character with a hint of caramel toffee aroma. Robust noble hops and 7.5% abv. intertwine the malty and toasty flavors. Historically, this beer is brewed once a year to celebrate the “Stark Bierzeit” (strong beer season) and to welcome the warming Spring Sunshine. (Draft Only) Starting Gravity: 16.0-16.5 ° Plato Finishing Gravity: 3.5-4 ° Plato apparent International Bitterness Units: 35-40 Color: 16.0-17 EBC

Draft. Pours murky brown/orange with small amount of head. Aroma of wheat, hay, bread dough, slight citrus. Some nice roasted, light brown sugar malt character. Thicker than I would have thought...some well developed deep flavors at play. Like a brown ale with more amps...

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2011 Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College PA this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy golden fruits and table sugar. The flavor was tart and tangy table sugar with notes of candied pears and apricots and undertones of bread, pepper and nut. The finish was long and sweet with lingering candied golden fruits. Thick and full bodied. Well done.

uuuuhhhh the brew has a decent alcohol kick to it yet it is refreshing enough. a bit of syrup to the consistancy and it is appropriately sweet with a vanilla toffee quality indicative of the style. touch of wood as the malt is that good i personally have never encountered a Ramstein brew that i would consider weak may i reccommend you try again j? hop bitter tinge in the finish.

On tap at Half Time. Pours a lightly hazed brown amber with a thin beige head. Sweet caramel, malt, and toast on the nose, and toffee. Light and thin, toffee and caramel. Light bitter finish. Boring and weak.
