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.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 25, 2007
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear copper body topped by creamy, medium tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, cherry, caramel, some alcohol. Taste is sweet, caramel/cookie, cherry, light alcohol that complements the big maltiness. Smooth, medium-full body. A bit sweet for my taste, but still pretty enjoyable.

hopscotch (8549) - 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.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with The_Beer_God (thanks!). Poured a deeper orange color with a small sized head. Aromas of nuts and all around malty. Tastes of light caramel and nuts.

Drake (7948) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2008
12 ounce bottle from Once Upon a Vine Macarthur in Richmond. Pours a reddish amber with a medium head. Nice head retention and lacing. Caramel, corn and grass in the aroma. Taste is caramel and citrus hops. Medium bodied. Very nice.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Bottle courtesy of the_beer_god. Pours red with a thin white head but good lacing. Smells of cherries, citrus, biscuits and dough. Tastes of biscuits, rose hops and earthy hops. Finishes bittersweet with a thick, syruppy mouthfeel.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Bottle. Poured a bright orange-red with a firm foam top. Slight sugary aroma. Sugary and sweet with an almost beefy aspect. This would go well with a gravied steak. Mega-malty.

TheBeerGod (5053) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2004 Had this at St. George Brewing in their sampling room. *** Also, while picking up some cask conditioned Porter today (10-15-04), Conor gave me a bottled sample of this. Thanks Conor! Amber body. Nose is light spicy hops and a pleasant maltiness. Bit of mild grassiness as well. Taste is malty with more of the spiciness coming through. Crisp at times but still a bit chewy. The alcohol is there but not overdone and leaves a bit of warming with it. Finishes well with milder malt and hop spice with minimal bitterness. Very good beer!

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Pours a mostly translucent amber with golden notes and a medium creamy off white head with large bubbles that laced. Aroma of sweet grainy malts, dark fruits, toffee, nuts and green apple. Flavor of hard pretzel, sweet malts, raisins, nuts and toffee.

radagast83 (4131) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Golden orange color, small head. Nutty and malty, a little roasty in there too, though that could have been from some other beer I had had earlier in the evening. Overall creamy, with a nice finish.

Nutty aroma with a cloudy dark amber color and a creamy white head. A sweet malty flavor with a nutty aftertaste.
