COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Heller Hound Bock is a crisp and malty Maibock, brewed with a special combination of Vienna and Munich malts. With a rich mouth feel and a subtle hop finish this is the perfect brew for toasting the sun's return.
O.G. 15.5

Bottle. Pours a amber body with a light head. Lightly hopped with floral spices, grass and some malt body. Pretty simple.

It gets props because it is cheap compared to similar tasting beers. I was impressed ,after reading the reviews on here i wasn’t expecting much . It is sweet and tastes great. Reminds me of Anchor’s Old Fog Horn.

Bottle. Pours an almost opaque cloudy amber. Aroma was honey and vanilla. Taste was full of sweet honey. Palate was a little grainy and bubbly.

Flying Dog Heller Hound Bock 5-3-6-3-14 Sample Tasting - Golden yellow hue with white head. Citrus, lemon grass, straw, hops nose. Smooth flavor, medium bodied. Light hops, sweeter malt. Drinkable.

Dark gold with a good starting head and lasting thick skiff. Aroma of long grass, straw and alcohol. A bit of alcohol in the flavour. Thick body almost syrupy. Has a chewy dry grass flavour. Reminds me of some Oktoberfests with a juicier flavour. Has an interesting juice pocket aftertaste effect.

Refreshing citrus aroma, just like a blue moon only with hops. Orange color with a cloudy body. Orange juice with a spice is a good way to describe the taste of this brew. Pretty decent, looking forward to having another.

pours a hazy amber with a white head. aroma is dough, grass, lemon. taste is leafy, sweet, a smidge of hops, toasty malt. mid-bodied with a sudsy mouthfeel. gentle bitter doughey finish. not bad, a little too mild for my taste. definitely a nice early spring brew.

Meh. Not much of a Bock. Too sweet given other Bocks I’ve tried. Virtually no head and the color is much lighter than I would wanted. As this is a Maibock, it does have right to be a bit brighter in color and taste, but this was just a bit over the top. Pulling back a bit may worthwhile for the next batch.Lemony honey (and grassy) is what hits you first in taste, and is tart on the edges and rear-center of the tongue. A little light yeast sits at the top of your mouth, but is nothing remarkable. It’s different, but not on par with say, taste-wise, with their Gonzo Imperial Porter. (Bottle Pour 3/9/2008)

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 29, 2008
light honey colored pour with little head. Sour bready nose, roasted malts, touch of soon to be rotten lemon. Medium light body tastes of mild fruit, some earthier hops, floral too. Maly sweetness and penut shells and smoke. Ends with a bit of caramel, smoke, wax, wet wood, grassy hops, old wheat and orange pith. Interesting beer, nothing I need to drink again anytime soon though.

Bottle. Orange/Amber color. Goes down very smooth...lighter than the bocks I’m used to drinking...good beer
