Bock is a strong lager (over 6.4%), usually medium to dark brown, with only enough hops to balance the malt. Some use wheat malt as well as barley malt. Bocks are often heavy and full bodied, but with a noticeable sweetness. There is a huge difference in flavour to the Pilsner style, but stalwart lager drinkers will probably adore them. There is less hop bitterness and more malty sweetness. Bock is usually associated with Germany (particularly the town of Einbeck, where the style is thought to have originated), though it also found elsewhere. It is thought that the name “bock” is derived from “Einbeck”, being gradually shortened to “bock”. Goats usually feature on the labels, as bock is German for goat. This may also be a sideways reference to the strength of the beer.
