Color: unfiltered light amber
Head: sudsy, thinning
Nose: malty but a hint of apricot
Body: medium-bodied, low carbonation
Palate: big malty flavor but lots of hops, quite dry for strength, fruity, some apricot
Finish: long, dry, bittersweet
Served: on tap at the brewery
Impression: I’ve always loved Roppelt Kellerbier and at their scenic Keller, there’s no reason to drink anything else. This was my first time at the actual brewery and with the Bock only available in autumn and it being on tap, there was little question what I’d have. It came out looking a beauty and had a nice malty nose with discernible hops in the mix. The flavor was more of the same, very balanced and thanks to the ample hopping, the finish was anything but cloying. Something tells me I’ll try to go to the Bockbieranstich next year.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
