2008. Created by homebrewer Alex Drobshoff. Alex’s Brew is a bright copper German inspired bock with a complex, full bodied mouthfeel. Hints of rich plum and cherry aromas paired with its toasty, malt flavor make this the perfect beer to linger over on a cool evening.

bhensonb (14170) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Poured a nice amber with a decent beige head. Aroma mostly of caramel. Pretty full bodied with firm carbonation. The flavor is smooth, rich caramel with lighter dark fruits. I’ll buy plum and cherry. Finish is smooth and lightly sweet. It drinks amazingly well, and I think most everyone will enjoy it.
