COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
True Story! Running a brewery can be "bock" breaking. It’s all worthwhile when you have the opportunity to share beer like this. Our Maibock/Helles Bock is deep golden in color with an intense malty almost grape like aroma and flavor. A light noble hop character balances the smooth sweet finish. A long lagering time makes this beer exceptionally drinkable for its strength. Don’t be fooled by its light color. OG 16.2 Plato. April release.

KyotoLefty (6504) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle from BOTW. Cloudy yellow orange, fine head goes to lace. Pilsner malts, lemony noble hop nose, with just a touch of DMS...Is this the brewer or the storage? 2 JA from Beers of the World both bad. 14-15 from the brewery, no problem...More DMS in the mouth, lemony hops, honey, sweet pale malts, creamed corn. I reckon I would really like this if it was in better shape. Probably quite old.

yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has a light maltyness, with a pleasant grassy and piney hoppyness. A bit one dimensional perhaps, but quite pleasant anyway. It’s full-bodied and soft on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Quite dryish. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with pine cones, resins and grass, the pale malts pushed to the back. Lasting bitter finish. A pleasant pale bock I could easily repeat. 140829
