... after my earlier comments, this collab proved quite good.


This was delicious.

pale bock sounds like a misnomer tbh. more deets please

A nice change-up. There's a definite hop component (mostly on the finish), but the sweet malt dominates and also adds a creaminess to it. Reviews are mixed, but I liked it quite a bit, myself.

hmmm..... i feel like hoppiness is something that shouldn't really be associated with bocks, but that might just be my own prejudice. from your descriptions, i'd think it's closer to an exceptionally malty ipa or something, which isn't particularly out of the norm lately...
post #10325 of 10827
I would say you're not incorrect, but the malt taste/flavor profile and nose are forward, with hops in the back, which seems oposite of the ones I've had that you're describing. Just my perception. It's a good beer, but I find I'm often out of sync with BA and RB reviews...

I, for one, am eager for the continuation of this illuminating debate about whether the category of the bock can admit of paleness and/or hoppiness.
post #10327 of 10827
I thought a bock was a stronger darker maltier slightly hopped lager. There's maibocks which are paler lagers.

I'm guessing they made a malty hoppy lager and the color turned out kinda light so just called it a pale bock.

Speaking of bocks I'm drinking Weihenstephaner Vitus which is pretty darn good
