COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This helles bock lager was inspired by the wonderful pale lagers of Germany. Brewed with authentic German pilsner malts and hopped with German magnum and spalt hop varietals. We hope you enjoy this warm weather treat. Raise your glass and toast to six years of the Malt & Vine.

Yellow pour, white head. Tastes like a floral pils with light earthy and grassy notes. Crisp and lightly dry.

My first foray into this style. Silky smooth, in mouthfeel and taste. Strong malt notes, with just a hint of hoppy zing. I didn't know what to expect with this one, but it's very nice -- almost sessiony, but more flavor and a higher ABV (6.7%). B/B+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle:   Fiery golden, translucent, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Sweet straw and hay on the nose.   Pale maltiness and sweet straw and hay on the tongue.   Clean.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Grassy finish.   A little boring, but clean and sessionable.

Light yellow pour, like white wine. Nose of perfume and pilsner; the nose takes me back to the cool of an empty German beer hall in mid morning. Sweet biscuit and vanilla, a nip of grassy hops on the long end. Smooth mouthfeel, not too sticky. Pretty nice beer.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours almost translucent gold with a slight and transient white head. Aroma is clean, lightly spicy. Just a hint of breadiness. Med body, nearly. Some pale malt/breadiness with moderate bitter and spicy/grassy aspects. It turns fairly bitter in the finish, mostly in a spicy way. This is indeed a warm weather beer, and seems quite light despite fairly strong flavors and an ABV in the IPA range. Pretty good stuff.
