Doppelbocks

With alcohol concentrations ranging from 7.0% to over 9.0% by volume, the doppelbock (double bock) is simply a stronger version of the traditional bock style. They range from a dark gold to a dark brown color and tend to be sweet and malty with little detectable hops and a noticeable alcohol flavor.

Pilsners

Simplicity has been the key to the pilsner’s success. Lightly kilned malt barley, noble hops, lager yeast and water yield a clean, simple bier that is similar to a traditional lager. German pilsners tend to be lighter, earthier and have a slighlty lower alcohol concentration that lager.

Weissbiers

Weissbier, or wheat bier, is the only German bier style that is technically an ale. All others are lagers. Weissbiers replace a hefty amount of malted barley with malted wheat and use a special strain of yeast, which gives the bier its characteristic banana and clove flavor. Hefeweizens, or unfiltered wheat biers, are typically cloudy with an orange tint, and Dunkelweizens are their dark wheat counterparts.
