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
