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

This was a great beer for the style. Just what I would want in the Spring! It was lighter bodied and the flavor was just right. Recommended.

Poured a nice golden amber with a poofy head. Nice smooth sugary goodness without being overpowering. Good juice.

I had 2 of these from the bottle before I poured one in a glass, so my initial taste impression was that it was a darker bock, not having any real descriptive text on the labe. When I poured it into my glass, I was a bit surprised it was a lighter colored Maibock! Great malty nose, decent carbonation, white head. Big full malty mouthfeel and taste. This could almost pass for a blonde dopplebock. Slight hops in finish, but itís mostly malt in this baby. Quite a big beer and I like it very much. I bought this on clearance for $4.99 a sixer from a merchant that I know handles itís beer properly, so this beer is in fine condition.

Great beer. Very dark amber with decent head. Nice malty taste with a hint of carmal and citrus. Good alcohol finish. A great beer.

Pours a honey-golden color with a nice, tan head, though not dense. The nose is nice, malty and sour, with hints of caramel. the mouth feel is rich and smooth, not too heavy, and the taste is a fine balance between malt up front and a delicate, hoppy finish with just a hint of alcohol. The beer leaves a delicate lace in the glass. A fine brew, and Iím looking forward to the other five in the fridge!

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. Itís a refreshing, bold and smooth beer that has the feel of spring.

A bock and a half! I do not know what you people are comparing this with? Want some powerful flavor? Look no more, looking to compare this with a pie in the sky "super beer"? Get a counselor, really get a life. I have been around bock beers for over 40 years, accept them for the seasonal beers they are.

Nice malty aroma that poured a reddish brown. It had a good malty mixed with nutty flavor that ended with some of the light hoppy.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 24, 2006
Rich gold, neat contrasting crown. Good malty aroma, clean rich fruity nose. Solid bock aroma. Medium bodied, good well crafter lager that obviously was not rushed of lagering vessels. Gentle hop bite at top. Very neat, full drinkable, light refreshing character.

Golden body, white head. Crisp malty aroma, rich malts flavour with toastiness at the end.
