Well, today wasn’t a bad day, although one of the beers in my advent calendar had gone bad as it had not sealed properly. I opened it, poured it and right away could tell it had turned. No carbonation at all and a sour smell. I did taste it and the taste had turned also. I will not include a rating of this beer only details about the brewery as I did not feel it was fair to rate a beer that had turned.
The beer today is from Fürst Wallerstein Brauhaus in Wallersten, Germany. Founded in 1999, it is a large scale operation that produces malt based beverages including beer. The beer that we had in the advent calendar today was their Winter Bock. We have seen a bock before, they are a strong lager made in Germany with a variety of subtypes. In this instance a winter bock is a bock that has been spiced, in this case with molasses and a bit of pepper, to give it a more winter warmer/ale style flavor.
There are not many details that I could find on the brewery, so I apologize for the curtness of this post. As I said, the beer had gone bad, so I moved on to the next one!
