Impression: I’ve had a couple of beers from this small Hof area brewery but its restaurant was closed at the time so finding this soft richly malty Bock had double benefits in being good and getting me to reinvestigate its being reopened. At any rate, this amber Bock has a reasonable 6.7% alcohol content and gorgeous amber hue. The richly malty nose tinged with honey follows into the palate. Lingering finish is bittersweet and avoids being cloying despite relatively low hopping.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
