After a good workout, yes a workout, I decided to open the last of the Troeg's Scratch series that I had in the fridge. It was Scratch #30, a Bock (some say a Jerman Bock, apparently a Helles/Mai bock).
It poured a nice light brown (a little darker than the picture makes it out to be), with a nice size head that disappears quickly. The head leaves a nice lacing on the glass.
The nose presents a very nice hop/malt balance- but no over the top smells come about.
First sip is delicious. Second sip recognizes a nice sweet, bready taste that is backed up with a good amount of hops (drys everything out). Surprisingly, this is 7% abv, I would have never guessed. As with the smell, neither hops nor malt dominate the taste.
This beer also has a nice balance of Carnation that allows the beer to be smooth going down. A very medium to light body doesn't hold you down after drinking. This is a very drinkable beer, and being the 7% could consider this dangerously drinkable-- the kind I like.
Wish I could get more. If you can find some of this anywhere, pick it up now!
