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!
