Trafalgar Brewing - Bock Lager

A medium tan coloured and short lived head on a very dark red/brown (cola) coloured beer.
I could find no aroma at all.
The feel was medium, slightly watery.
The taste started with a bit of roasted malt, some chocolate and a hint of berry in the finish.
Some alcohol or acitone tastes were present as well.
As Bock beers go this is not a great example. Of course, knowing Trafalgar the next bottle could be exceptional. I wish they could learn to be consistant.


I wish they could be consistent too!

I like to see breweries

I like to see breweries experiment and I like a wide variety of tastes but I really hate it when one batch is so radically different from the next.
I have found some of their beers to suddenly be an entirely different style, not just a different taste.
I can understand minor variations due to raw material changes, but not the kind of swings I have found with Trafalgar.

Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier

Pours a very clear and pale yellow. There is a full bright white head which disappears as I watch.
Aroma is very faint, some earthiness and a hint of sulphur.
Feel is fairly creamy and pleasant.
The first taste is very earthy, metallic and sulphur. There are some sweet tastes in there with even a hint of apple. The finish is quite dry and lasting but the sulphur comes through too strongly for my taste.
Still, it is an easy drinking beer and fairly enjoyable, just not something I am going to be searching for.

Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier

Pours a burnished gold with a nice white head and lots of lace. Very little in the way of carbonation bubbles.
Nice creamy mouth feel. Not as full as some but still quite rich.
Aroma is like an apple orchard when the fruit is just starting to ripen. (I'm a farm boy from way, way back). It is very appetizing this aroma.
The taste does not disappoint. It is full of flavors. Apple, some citrus and of course a bit of alcohol. It has just enough drying finish to beg for more.
I like this very much.

Beer Quote of the day

When I get a chance to play golf or go on a boat with good people, take the boat out and put some lobsters on the grill, get the ice-cold beer and the cigars - that's heaven here on earth.
