Hönicka Bräu Wunsiedler Hönickator

deep golden beer in glass with bottle
Wunsiedler Hönickator

Brewery: Hönicka Bräu Wunsiedler
Style: Heller Doppelbock

Color: deep golden

Head: off-white, sudsy
Nose: rich malt, a touch of honey, faint grain/hops

Body: medium

Palate: richly malty, a touch of honey, underlying hops
Finish: lingering, semi-dry, bittersweet

Served: from a bottle bought in the area

Impression: I quite liked their Dunkler Doppelbock so decided to give this a try despite its having a screw cap. It’s a deceptively strong brew which could pass for a typical Franconian Bock with a rich malty palate. It’s got a touch of honey in both the nose and taste but there is fair hopping, making for a lingering, semi-dry, bittersweet finish. Liked their dark Bock more but this was pretty good too.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
