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.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Clear red color. Smells sort of rusty. A nice punch of flavor when first tasted. Syrupy and sweet. Pretty good.

Had this on tap at Hampton Fall Fling with Brewmaster Andy and City of Hampton, Mayor Ross A. Kearney, II. Great guys, excellent brew. Clear brownish-copper brew, small tan head. Very light aroma of malt and notes of nuts, and some raisins. When you hear the word bock you expect some warmth but this baby takes warmth to the extreme. THE perfect brew for this outdoor fall fest with clear sunny skies and temps in the upper 50’s. A bit fizzy, not bad, nutty flavor. Not a big alcohol taste but it sure let me know it was there, especially after the second serving. Clean finish.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle... Clear, copper lager with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Malty nose with notes of maple, praline and dark raisins. Sweet, malty flavor. Peppery, earthy hops don’t quite restrain the heavy sweetness. I like ’em malty, but not cloyingly sweet. Full-bodied and lightly oily with lively carbonation. Sweet, then grassy finish.

Bottle. Very weak head. Aroma very malty and nutty. I liked the aroma at first, but started to form a distaste as I finished. Malty and nutty flavor as well. Not very smooth.

One bottle from OBX trip. Some hops in aroma. Nutty malty body. Slightly bitter ending, not as smooth as expected.

Had this one bottled in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. One of the best beers I’ve ever had. Medium brown color with a filmy head, very nice nuts and strawberry in the nose, and lucious fruitiness continues throughout. This is candy for beer drinkers. wonderful!

Beautiful in appearance. Cider-colored, murky quality of cider too. Thin head. Molasses, touch of pine. Lush palate has the alcohol, some hops, a bit grittier than the typical bock, but very enjoyable. Thanks Ron for the trade!

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 5, 2006
12 oz bottle. Dark gold with a small white head. Sweet biscuity nose, a bit nutty. Flavor is slightly sweet, malty biscuit and a light spiciness. Mild bitter in the finish, still mostly sweet. Good.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2006 Nice bock, I found it to be a bit heavier than expected, but very nice. Warming as a good fall bock should be. I didnt pick up on very many hops however, most of the taste was dominated by malt, but what bock isn’t? Enjoyable, I have grown to like this brewery.

Good gold body with a light head. Walnuts and malts dominate the aroma. Heavy nuts in the taste, similar to the Morimoto Maple Nut Brown.
