A Couple of Bull Falls Beers to Drink Tonight in Oshkosh
Over the past few years, I’ve become a fan of the lagers Bull Falls produces. Oblio’s will have two of those on tap. Let’s take a look…
Midnight Star Lager
This is Bull Falls take on the German Schwarzbier style. It’s a dark lager with a bready aroma and undertones of toffee and light roast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy. The malt flavor is slightly nutty and rounded with just enough bitterness. The clean, somewhat dry finish conceals that it’s 6.0% ABV. A wonderful beer meant to be taken in long pulls from the glass.
Bull Falls Bock Lager
This is their Spring seasonal and a pitch perfect bock beer. It pours chestnut brown giving off a gust of malt aromatics. The beer is full bodied with a rich, Munich-malt flavor that’s at first toasty and then caramel-like. For a beer that’s 7.2% ABV, it’s incredibly drinkable. Easily one of the best American-made traditional bocks on the market today.
Bull Falls Brewery has an interesting backstory. I spewed everything I know on the subject yesterday over at the Oshkosh Independent. You can find that story HERE. See you tonight!
