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.

This was poured into a pilsener. The appearance was a nice looking hazy yellow color with a super light carbonation seen rising to fill a quickly dieing white foamy head. Adequate foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass in a messy sort of way. The smell had a rich sweet malts, somewhat like sticky bready candy and a light crisp spicy edge to it. The taste was mainly the sweet malts through a sweet crisp biscuit-like edge. There’s a nice light sweet sticky aftertaste leading to a sweet wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionable quality about it. There’s a nice soft creamy texture rolling over my tongue. Overall, this was a wonderful take on a Maibock Lager. I would definitely do this again.

rosenbergh (7890) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 5, 2015
500 ml bottle. Bottled on 04/09/2014. Courtesy of Timo A. Cloudy golden colour with a tiny white head. Earth, basement, honey and citrus in the aroma. The flavour is malt, dry citrusy hops, mild bitterness and sweet sugary notes. Not my favourite style nor interpretation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: Thanks, Alex. Hazy, dense golden yellow body with a soapy white head that settles quick. Fresh grain aroma, straw, crackers, toast, a hint of honey, & very faint hoppage. Taste follows with a big baked bread flavor, grain, yeast, grass, honey, biscuits, & a touch of lemon zest. Nice honey, semisweet cereal grain finish. Dry & full of yeast. Tasty.
