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.

Kita (1236) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear deep golden color with medium frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy and toasted malt with grassy and fruity hops. Taste starts with moderate sweet toasted malt, follows by light grassy and fruity acidity, mild spicy mouthfeel and moderate funky bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. It doesn’t hurt at all...

harrisoni (14248) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle from The Bottle Shop and drunk at home. Hazy gold with lasting white head. Very lemony limey aroma, sweetish malt aroma. It’s pretty good pretty authentic. Hides the abv well and doesn’t go over the top with the hops. Very drinkable, very good hop on the finish to balance the malt. It’s delicious, right up my maibock alley. Terrific.

KyotoLefty (6835) - 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.
