Beer Information and Tasting Notes
Castle Brewery Eggenberg Samichlaus
Strong (inc. Maibock, Bock)
Castle Rock Brewery
By Jeff Evans
Full, sticky malt, dry sherry, vine fruits and red berries.
Rich, full and sweet with thick, creamy malt topped by juicy raisins and plums. There are little bursts of orange, too, and plenty of warming, alcoholic vapours.
Creamy, thick, tingly and warming. Sweet raisins and oranges blend with an oaky hop tang that builds slowly, drying the palate.
The classic Christmas beer from Austria, full-bodied and complex. Even just a thimbleful, sipped slowly like a port or sherry, keeps out the cold of winter.
By Zak Avery
Huge and heady, with notes of dried fruit, liqueur cherries, sherry and toasted grain
Immediately sweet and slightly warming (or even numbing) on the tongue. More dried fruit, sultana, sherry and (unsurprisingly) a spirity, cognac edge on the exhale.
Big and boozy, with sherry and fruitcake, there's a tell-tale warming glow, and a sweetness that persists without being cloying.
Not just unusual for a lager, it's unusual full stop. Not everyone's cup of tea, but a classic nonetheless.
