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.

Ughsmash (7154) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Bottled. Clear, lighter toffee pour with a short, sticky cap of white head. The aroma was sticky and sweet with darker caramel notes and some dried leafy hoppage.. simple and perhaps too sweet, but it smelled good to me! The flavor also had a great deal of very sweet, lightly-toasted caramel, but with more of an herbal twist for hops.. left a sweet impression on the finish. Just shy of medium-bodied, very sweet, and somewhat refreshing on the palate. I liked this, but can see why some wouldn’t.

Crazy bottle as usual. It hurts my soul. Very little hops. Minimal head. It does have a thick feeling in the mouth. Not a great beer, but nevertheless its ok. It is a different flavor. Odd. Random.

Bottle: Pours a light amber color with small white head. Aroma of light malt, caramel and hay/grass. Interesting flavor that threw me off for a second. I’m not real sure how to describe it other than sweet and malty. Their is something that I can’t quite place though. Has a slightly bitter floral hop note throughout. Pretty good.

RSRIZZO (1855) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Had this beer on 5/13/2004. Aroma is a rich sweet malty scent. Color is a deep clear gold with good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is mildly malty. Starting with medium body it goes down with smooth feel and a malty flavor coming on. Finish comes in with a mild malt flavor and a smooth hop bitterness, this is backed by a very light spiciness. It seems to hit what they wanted it to be. This is a spring beer, but they call it an anti-spring and what better way to brew this then a light Bock. It’s a refreshing, bold and smooth beer that has the feel of spring.

12oz bottle-A golden body with a small white head and an aroma of malt, hops, and fruity pepples. Taste of malt, hops, sweetness, and a dry bitter finish. Not a bad beer but just not my style.
