Beer 55 of winter – don’t be chicken

Atwater Winterbock

Brewer: Atwater       Craft: Winterbock       ABV: 7.5%

A little back story.  One of the beers I drank in my younger, less particular years was vitamin y, or as it is more commonly known, Yuengling Lager.  So I am very familiar with what a lager tastes like.  Lagers are fermented at colder temperatures than ales.  For me, that makes lagers drinkable in greater quantities.

So that brings me to the Atwater Winterbock.  A bock is a variety of lager that is a bit stronger and heartier than the normal lagers.  And this craft doesn’t disappoint.  I feel like I’m at Oktoberfest when I’m drinking this beer.  It’s easy to drink.  It’s smooth.  It’s malty and subtly sweet.  It has a nice hop undertone.  It’s a hearty, I could drink a few of these and start to wonder where my lederhosen are kind of craft.  Wait, what?  Anyhow, another successful brew from Atwater.  Enjoy!
