Bottle brought home from October trip to Franconia. Wonder blond bock.
Super clean lager with very nice malt undertones and long lagering. Crisp with just enough alcohol to let you know you’re drinking a bock. Inspired effort from good out of the way brewery.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20

Medium, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish flavor, light caramel and faint fruitiness with light alcohol. Finish is average, malty - grainy and sweetish, light caramel and faint butter with faint hoppyness, light alcohol. Sweetish bock with caramel - nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sample at PRNH meibock festival. Clear gold pour with white head. Aroma of musty old grain, butter, dusty and vegetal notes, honey comes out as it warms, not a super inviting aroma. Taste is better, grainy, honey malt notes yet not too sweet. Palate is slick, med bodied with light carbonation. Meh.
