Impression: I had this last season and it was a buttery mess but I’d heard great things about this new Bock so made a point of getting out here during my Bamberg birthday weekend. Sadly already not on tap but still available in bottles. Nice amber hue with thinning head and complex nose of rich malt, fruit and smoke. Richly malty palate features some fruit and light smoke. The semi-dry lingering finish is just bitter enough to make it moreish. Quite good, would be better if self-poured as initially very fizzy.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
