Trunk Nothelfer Silber Bock
Brewery: Brauerei Trunk Alte Klosterbrauerei
Head: white, rocky
Nose: malt, hint of grain
Palate: malty, light grain, underlying hops
Finish: clean, semi-dry, semi-bitter
Served: from a bottle bought locally
Impression: Really love their regular beers and the few seasonal beers I’ve had on tap but have yet to try either this Hellerbock or their Dunklerbock so was happy to find the former even if only in bottled form. It poured with a gorgeous rocky head and nice malty nose. There was a nicely integrated grain element intermingling with the underlying hops for a somewhat dry, semi-bitter finish. It’s dangerous at 6.8% and while it doesn’t really jump out at you, it’s a well made Hellerbock with more hops than have progressively become common.
