Turn your lager up a notch. Bock beer has a darker hue than lagers, ranging from dark amber to brown. A malty sweetness is the calling card, but its prevented from overwhelming the taste by a balance of bitter hops. The shocking amount of goat imagery on bock labels isn't to mess with you. Bock alludes to the German word for a male goat. And with a typical ABV of 5-6%, you might feel like you got kicked by a goat if you have too many. A signature German beer style, bocks are the quintessential spring beer.
