This beer is sold Stateside in green bottles, so buy form the back of the shelf (where bottles aren't harmed by light) to avoid skunky flavors. Kiper Kock pouts very pale gold and clear with a thin, white head that doesn't stay long. Quiet alcohol and hop spice set the statge for a honey- and biscuit-filled aroma. Its flavor is malt-driven: Bold pilsner malt sweetness washes over the tongue before the fermentation qualities -- red apple tastes and sharp alcohol -- emerge. Through palatable, the beer lacks the complexity found in other examples of the style. A punch of alcohol kicks off the finish; sweetness and peppery notes characterize the aftertaste.
