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

AmEricanbrew (5901) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Clear light amber with a fleeting head. A malty bready smell is faintly sweet. Med bodied with a smooth texture. A mild, but nice nutty malty flavor here with a mildly bitter finish. Not a bad beer, but weak for a bock. 62406

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Pours an orangish color. Watery, with diluted hops and citrus flavor. Not very interesting. Emphasis seemed to be on the hops, which goes against what a Bock should be. Seems more like a weak IPA. Pass on this one.

Amber color. Not much special but it is an OK beer. A sweet flavor of mild yeast and hops.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2008
[988-20071215] 355mL (c/o DuctTape, w/ him, jerc). Doughy yeast aroma seems kind of mouldy. Hazy, orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Mild grains and hops and a hint of grass in the flavour. Medium body is watery. Uninteresting.

beerbill (3508) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thin, dense off-white head that lasted until about midway and lightly coated the glass. Sort of a strange aroma for a bock with only a hint of malt detected with some grassy hops. The flavor is similar with only a little bit of malt along with some grassy hops. Weak finish with a watery mouthfeel. Disappointing.

cstuartj (1000) - Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Bottle, pours dark orange with a small off white head. Attack is weak but non-offensive, finishes nice with malts and a pleasing bitterness.

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle. Orangey yellow body with a small white head. Odd fruity grainy aroma. Watery flavour, dilute fruity washed out grains. Average to thin palate. Pretty disappointing.

12 oz bottle thanks to beerlord. Copper color, creamy head, seemed to me a lot like a pale ale. Nice beer.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Pours a clear amber. No head really. Nose is sugary like the frosting to a cake, but fruity. Flavor is kind of odd. Sweet but with a weird bitter edge to it. Kind of seems rough around the edges. Feel is good on the liquid with a strong bubble that bites a bit. Overall I can’t say this one is overly worth trying. Rough around the edges and lacking any smooth edge to it. Seems like a miss to me and definitely stands as one of my least favorite Flying Dogs to date.
