COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George Fall Bock is our offering of an non-traditional seasonal beer. This Autumn warmer, based on our brewmaster’s favorite styles of German beers, couples the dominate malt character and full-bodied base needed to support a higher-alcohol Bock Beer. True to style, we use only noble German hops for perfectly balanced bitterness and a medium hop aroma. A unique lager yeast and a centuries old conditioning process result in an especially smooth, but STRONG (and not surprisingly) amber colored lager with a fine creamy head.

BelgianBeerGal (3197) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Fresh bottle picked up from the brewery. Pours a nice clear copper color with a small white head and slight lacing. Light aroma of chalk dust, sweeter malt and a hint of citrus. Really a well balanced and mellow flavor. No real strong alcohol notes that sometimes pop-up in this style.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Pours amber with a one-finger white head. Great toffee and light grainy, earthy hop aroma. A little heat in the nose. Sweet, malty flavor. Some nuttiness. The alcohol comes through a little too much on the end; maybe a touch more hoppiness would take care of that. Or maybe just make it a bit weaker. Still, definitely worth a shot. One of the few decent American Bocks.

Shockoe festival Richmond VA-Draft: Bready, nutty, and a little meaty aroma. Cloudy light ochre pour, thick yellow head. Taste is sweet caramel and walnut. There’s a faint hint of bubblegum on the palate. Chewy mouthfeel.
