Town: Viereth-Trundstadt (Weiher)
Style: Heller Bock
Head: ample, thinning
Nose: rich malt
Palate: rich malt, some fruitiness, underlying hoppiness
Finish: long, bittersweet
Served: from a bottle bought in the region
Impression: I’d have some bottles from Weiherer before visiting the brewery and though I found them all well-made, I was never blown away by them. I finally went to the brewpub and just about everything seemed to blow me away. I got some bottles to bring home and some where excellent, others just good. So, when I saw this Bock at a beer store, I didn’t hesitate to buy it. It poured with a deep golden hue and lovely head. It had a nice rich malty aroma and a super well-balanced flavor. At 6.6%, it was a little too easy to drink, with just enough hops to dry out the finish. I got to try it on tap recently, and it’s even better.
