Impression: Great Bockbieranstich (first tapping of the seasonal bock) at the brewery’s Schmausenkeller on the outskirts of town. Served from the barrel without C02, it had a great soft palate which likely took some of the bitterness from the obvious hop presence. Initially malty, it swung to the hoppy side quickly enough and not easy to see it being the bigger sibling to their regular Kellerbier and Pils. The finish was long, dry and bitter.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
