Served: from a bottle bought in Bayreuth

Impression: Good looking golden Bock with a fair head and honey in the richly malty nose. It’s another big Bock at 7.2% but that’s the trend and this one at least maintains good drinkability. The rich malty palate features some honey and the alcohol peeks through as it warms up. Hops peek through as well but less assertively. They dry things out well enough in the lingering bittersweet finish. Still, I think this would work better at 6.5%. This is more in Doppelbock territory.
