Impression: Keesmann is most noted for their Herrn Pils but this malty bock has a lot of the clean, dry bitterness associated with Keesmann. I’d had this a couple times but standing in the Schwemme on cold dark nights. This was the first time I’d secured a seat inside in winter and wasn’t about to let the opportunity slip through my hands. This picture was the second one I had, a Schnitt or hard pour leaving a large head. You can only order this as your last beer and a good custom more countries should observe, especially ones with bocks! It really is an easy to drink bock and maybe just a notch below neighbor Mahr’s Bock.
