It’s my 2nd beer from Rothenbach Brauerei, a Aufsesser Heller Bock (Lighter Bock). It’s 6.5% and hard to find in an internet search. I often find the regular, darker Bock, but not this one. I’ll translate a sentence from the back label:
"A strong beer from the good old time, spicy/full-flavored and stout/bold in taste. A long maturation in a cold and dark Lagerkeller guarantees the balanced and excellent taste, guaranteed by the Braumeister of Ausesser Brauerei."
Aroma is weak, maybe a little München malts, but not much else. Color is deep golden with a bright white crown of foam sitting on top even a few minutes after the pour. So far, it could pass for a Pils, though a rich, dark golden one. The taste is... wow... very malty, - sweet and decent amount of smoke for a backbone. It’s thick, feels like dreaming of a warm blanket wrapping around your tongue. It also has a decent amount of Noble bittering hops to go with the smoke. Overall, it’s a wonderful balance of sweet maltiness of a Märzen with a bitter and smokey front and after taste, though neither of these flavors overwhelms. The aftertaste, though, is a really rich, sweet Münchener malt, really prominent. I have to say, I’m usually not fond of smoke nor German bitter noble hops, but this a great beer! fonefan (50673) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 5, 2013
