Grasser Kathrein Bock is a marvelous Hellerbock from the Franconian brewing legend in Huppendorf. It's a great mix of rich malt and fine hops with a dry bittersweet finish. It's dangerously drinkable at 7.5%. This gravity dispense version at Der Pelikan Best of Bock 2023 was a notch drier in the lingering finish.
Ulrich Martin is a traditional brewery lovingly restored by the man himself. The Martinibock is fantastic bock full of malt and dried apricot notes. This one from gravity dispense at Der Pelikan Best of Bock 2023 was extra dry.
A Doppelbock with a gorgeous deep amber hue and off-white creamy head. Lovely rich malty nose with a hint of burnt caramel. Palate is similar, making it a more of a sipper but balanced enough that I had three with lunch!

Stern-Bräu Vollbier is a hoppy session beer with a nice fruity quality that dries out in the long bitter finish. As served at the Scheublel Keller in Schlüsselfeld, it's softer which allows the complex flavors to mingle perfectly. A must Kellerbier/Bierkeller experience.
