Impression: Great Bockbieranstich (first tapping of the seasonal bock) at the brewery a couple weeks before Christmas. Served from the barrel without C02, it had a great soft palate which likely took some of the bitterness from the obvious hop presence. Fantastic oscillation between malty and hoppy elements The finish was long, dry and bitter.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
