Hofbrau Bock - Trader Joe's
Brewed by Gordon Biersch
Ratebeer 2.82 35th percentile
Beer Advocate B-
There was zero carbonation from this bottle and therefore zero head retention. The nose also did not provide any surprises; it was very lager like with light honey and sweet limes. Things improved with a light/medium mouthfeel and a slightly creamy sensation. Lightly toasted grains with toffee hints overpowered the earthy hops. This brew was a little on the sweet side but nice. There were 22IBU for those keeping score.
The earthy hops, honey and toasted grains slowly faded away cleanly.
Alcohol Content +1 7%
I never saw that one coming.
It was nice, but a little too light and sweet for a bock.
Ingame Enhancement +1
Still in Seattle wondering how many DNA stains are in my hotel room.
A nice, light, sweet and high octane bock can now be found at Trader Joe's. Don't forget to pick up some 2 buck Chuck and chocolate covered edamame beans.
