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.

harrisoni (13861) - 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.

yngwie (13750) - 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

Leighton (11348) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle in NYC. Pours clear, muted gold with a small, white cream head. Pale, doughy malts on the nose. Medium sweet flavor with further doughy, bredy malts, light grains and hay, faint herbal notes. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet but not cloying finish with rich bread, hints of alcohol, mild cereal, touhes of bitter straw. Nicely balanced heller bock - which is an accomplishment.
