Mountain Holidays In Vermont Rich Creamy Bock Lager

Thanks go out to brad007 for the chance to try this one.
22oz, gold foiled bomber. 2008 vintage.
Nice to see a lager getting some special treatment.
Solid red brown body with an ivory head with good retention. Some sparse lace.
Very clean nose, not much to report other than some balanced malts.
Funny this, because I kept expecting to taste it and get some smoked malts!? I have no idea why – odd mind games. Creamy mouthfeel and a robust feeling permeates the whole beer. Simple malt and hop balance that is clean and sturdy. Gives the impression of a well balanced brew. Mild nuttiness; dry, slightly bitter and yeasty in the finish. Dry caramel too.
Solid beer and an easy drinking lager but ceratinly not spectacular. You can do a lot more with the Bock style, but nevertheless I still enjoyed it very much.
