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.

From Jun 2008 I got this bottle, filled by New Beer Distributors, from nutbrown. Thanks Alan! This was filled in a Grand Teton 1 liter swingtop bottle.... A nice pop when I opened the bottle, it pours a clear golden colour with a 1 finger head of foam. Lots of nice lacing. Head retention was about average. The smell is very light but there's definitely some biscuit and toasted malt. The taste is what I expected, judging from the nose. Big biscuit malt flavour, big toasted malt that has a bit of earthiness to it, and a slight citrus hop twang about mid palate. Nice, and man, this is so damn easy to drink. 7.5%?? You gotta be kidding me! lol. The body is medium light and the carbonation is very much on the light side. It finishes like it started; nice malty goodness permeating my tastebuds but oh, there's also a slight bitterness there as well. Cool. This, I think, would be a *great* beer to drink when is in the midst of hop overload. ;^)

Draft. Amber. Rich sweet toffee and fruit throughout. Caramel malt. Amazingly light with full flavor and medium body. Very smooth with a fruity pebbles bitter finish. Very good for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark amber. Has a caramel, malt and grain aroma. A sweet taste with caramel, light fruit and malts. A sweet aftertaste. A light body.

Goodgrief (2072) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Straw yellow pour with amber highlights. Bready aroma. Flavor was grains, dough and caramel. Dry finish. Not overly sweet. Good example of style.

jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Draft. Pours murky brown/orange with small amount of head. Aroma of wheat, hay, bread dough, slight citrus. Some nice roasted, light brown sugar malt character. Thicker than I would have thought...some well developed deep flavors at play. Like a brown ale with more amps...

TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2012
A seasonal featured on draft at the Morris Tap & Grill in Randolph, NJ. This was my first sample from this brewer and I was impressed. The flavor was distinctive and of craft quality. I look forward to more selections from this brewer.
