dark golden beer in mug
Krug-Bräu Bock

Brewery: Krug-Bräu
Heller Bock
deep golden
Head: white
, dense
malty, a hint of hops
full-bodied, low carbonation
a big malty flavor, quite dry for strength
Finish: long dry and bittersweet

Served: on tap at the brewery

Impression: I had this the first time at a Maibaum Fest in Schnabelwaid just on the edge of the Bierquellenweg hike. These are events where they raise a May pole in celebration of the first day of May.  It was in a krug so I had no visuals but since I knew Krug’s main beer is a dark one, I just assumed it was dark.  At the brewery, it was in glass and I was surprised to find it a deep golden. I’m partial to dark bitter bocks so it threw me a bit. It was nonetheless, a very balanced bock with lots of hoppy bitterness in the long dry finish.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
