Yuengling - Bock Beer

Donated By: Shane Angus
Serving Type: 12 oz. bottle, poured into a fluted glass

This relatively obscure seasonal offering from Pennsylvania's famous Yuengling pours a deep brownish and tawny amber body with a perpetual red glow. The healthy light tan head has a flat brown edge. The lightly creamy foam produces a light, thin lacing. Huge malts on the nose with the classic Yuengling Traditional Lager malt detectable. Considerable toastiness and caramel notes define the aroma.

The carbonation is crisp and vibrant. Earthy toasted malts are exuded with a damp wood-like component. Tinge from the carbonation and a lightly bitter and dusty hopping keeps the bold malts in check. This is a very drinkable and competent Bock seasonal. This is a beer all Yuengling fans should keep an eye out for.

Final Verdict: B
