Style Family Snapshot

A strong lager-style of beer traditionally brewed in winter to celebrate the coming spring. It is full-bodied, malty, and well-hopped. A range of varieties of this style exist, varying either in color or alcoholic strength. Of course, with the greater strength comes a greater intensity in aromas and flavors.
