Traditional Bock

A dark, strong, malty lager beer.

Strong malt aroma, often with moderate amounts of rich melanoidins and/or toasty overtones. Virtually no hop aroma. Appearance: Light copper to brown color, often with attractive garnet highlights. Lagering should provide good clarity despite the dark color. Large, creamy, persistent, off-white head.
Flavor: Complex maltiness is dominated by the rich flavors of Munich and Vienna malts, which contribute melanoidins and
toasty flavors. Some caramel notes may be present from decoction mashing and a long boil. Hop bitterness is generally only
high enough to support the malt flavors, allowing a bit of sweetness to linger into the finish. Well-attenuated, not cloying.
No roasted or burnt character.
