growler. Lite & un-disagreeable. A tad too much alcohol for the style, IMO, but a fun a throwback-able lager. Extra points for alcohol ("call it whatcha’ wanna call it..." and locality; woot-woot!

It’s really quite a good Heller bock. The aroma is bready with sweet malt notes with a faint banana note... Taste is sweet not too lagerish with plenty of toasty malt flavor. The finish is smooth and clean with of lasting maltiness... Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with an average white head that holds well enough. Aroma is bready, biscuit, grass, hay, a very faint citrus, sweet lager. Taste is heavier than the aroma, bread, hay, grass, a weak sweet oj like citrus note. Great mouthfeel, very drinkable like the style should be. Very solid session beer that has something to it.
