BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Klosterbrauerei Andechs
Germany
andechs.de

Style: Maibock / Helles Bock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
With its firm, fine pored head, luminous gold and clear gleaming look, it cannot fail to awaken expectations of pure pleasure.

Strong malty nuances and floral hoppiness are imbued with accents of slight fruitiness. Despite its strength, Bergbock is pleasantly mouthcoating, with a powerful, but unobtrusive body. A highly discrete, finely bitter hoppiness transforms into a slight honey sweetness to conclude on a soft, harmonious aftertaste.

A harmonious light bock of character that cannot be put down after the first drink.

T: Clean, honey, light, refreshing, a little sweet
F: Smooth, goes down nice, very nice feel
O: Normally I find all Helles to taste the same but this one is quite different with a more sweet taste that's great after a hike in the mountains or a bratwurst mit sauerkraut

I would like to say a little upset data beer, not a weak expression of taste, smell is almost absent, the only thing that pleases is the appearance of the bottle and the color of the beer !!!

RB

500 ml bottle .. flakey silver label... poured into my small goblet. nice enough white head.. fairly clear dark golden brew.. spotty lacing.

Nose is big pale malt with some husky astringency.. pretty proper.

Flavor is pretty nice... the bottle might be a bit old, but I am happy to try this one again.. clean lager with not too much in the way of yeasty notes.

Good bubble and body... I would love to spend some time in Andechs some day... I would be a good student.
