The Brü Revü – Rahr & Sons Bucking Bock‏

The Rahr & Sons Bucking Bock is a German Style Spring Bock which is a Maibock or Heller Bock which are supposed to be heavy on the malt with little to no hop profile.  It poured a golden amber with a large white head and it was beautiful on this hot afternoon. The initial taste of the Bucking  Bock was bracingly bitter as I was expecting nothing but heavy malts.  As the beer warmed the bitterness faded but was still present. I am not sure if they were going for a hoppier Maibock but in terms of the style, the bitterness could be tamed. In the end the Bucking Bock was still an enjoyable beer although overly bitter for the style, and the higher than usual ABV made me forget all about the bitterness.
