1888 Bock

Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company

Traditional Bock

7.0 by rich have another 1888 Bock by Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company

Admittedly prejudice to bock beers, when you live in the northern climates, bock beer is the first sign of spring to a beer drinker! I have fond memories of Leinenkugel Bock Draft from Champaign, IL from the mid '80s. The beer disappeared and has now reappeared as 1888 bock. Not a sophisticated beer but an immensely good interpretation of a style: bock. I could drink this day-in and day-out throughout the spring. Very smooth malt without sweet....read more

Anchor Bock

Anchor Brewing

Traditional Bock

8.0 by rich have another Anchor Bock by Anchor Brewing

A sophisticated brew from a long time, well established, brewery. Complex taste: roasted not smoked, malt sweetness is very well balanced. High end of bocks. Don''t know if it is the best bock but it is certainly a benchmark in this style category....read more

Blonde Dopplebock

Capital Brewery

Doppelbock

8.0 by rich have another Blonde Dopplebock by Capital Brewery

Sweet, fruity aroma. Carmel, toasty, dry, with a bit of a sweet finish. Like most Capital brews, it has a heavy mouth feel. Has some carbonation but on the lower end - not much head or retention either....read more

Christmas Ale

Anchor Brewing

Herb and Spice Beer

8.0 by rich have another Christmas Ale by Anchor Brewing

Rating it high as Christmas Winter Ale - Molassy, spicy but works well together. Wouldn''t drink a six pack but a good blending of flavors. Definition of a Christmas Ale. Heavy end of the ales - close to a porter....read more

Dirty Bastard

Founders Brewing Company

Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy

4.0 by rich have another Dirty Bastard by Founders Brewing Company

Not much head. Aroma has a hint of Scotch. Seems to have too simple of taste and the high alcohol comes out without a balance of flavors. Similar to drinking an average scotch - just not that interesting....read more

Golden Cap

New Holland Brewing Company

Saison

5.0 by rich have another Golden Cap by New Holland Brewing Company

Just a hint of haziness. Lemon, pepper aroma. Definitely taste wheat, carbonation, but doesn't taste like the aroma. Sixth beer of the night, so probably not fair to taste now as it is the only one of this style....read more
