Rich Amber Bock brewed with Vienna and Munich malts. Pure lager yeast ferments this beer to create a deep malty character with a hint of caramel toffee aroma. Robust noble hops and 7.5% abv. intertwine the malty and toasty flavors. Historically, this beer is brewed once a year to celebrate the “Stark Bierzeit” (strong beer season) and to welcome the warming Spring Sunshine.

Bottled. An unclear light amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet matly with light citrusy notes of hops. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of oranges and straw. I find the body thin. Tasted blind.

This is a Spring drinking beer for sure. On draught at Circa (where else), crisp, flavorful, toast and toffee and caramel in a refreshing lager format. Nice.

Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Draft at The Gate. Small, thin head on a light copper body. Aroma is super sweet with biscuit. Flavor is also on the sweet side with almost all caramel. Nice lively mouthfeel for a beer with this thick body.

Handbottle from dickinsonbeer. Hazy amber body with a tiny off-white head. The aroma is cotton candy, honey, dough, raisins and very light herbal hops. The flavor is lightly sweet, cotton candy, slightly fruits (golden) and light caramel. Medium/light body is soft, round and lightly carbonated. Very nice stuff. Thanks Paul.
