Hello and Merry Christmas, I have here a local beer from OMB, Olde Mecklenburg Brewery here in Charlotte. This is an authentic German-Style Bockbier. But a Christmas or yule bock. This brewery does not make regular 12oz six packs, they’re beers come in pints, bombers, and growlers. I don’t know why they do this but they do. This bock is 1 pint 6 of oz (650 ml), and is 7.0% ABV. That slightly stronger then and average beer. This OMB bock pours a deep amber color with a crimson red and a very handsome off white thick head. It has a nice banana bread scent with a slight faint hop scent as well. This is a great bock. It has a malty sweetish taste with a spice after note, and its after taste is of a carmel and yeast but faint spice, that warms you and makes you glad it’s holiday time. This is a smooth bock with great flavor. I really enjoyed this one. and shared it with my father whom liked it too. Yes there is enough in this bottle for two. How nice of OBM. I would surly have this again. I love a good bock beer and this is great. You should try this too, and share with someone for a merry christmas. Cheers! Please drink responisbly!
