True Story! Running a brewery can be "bock" breaking. Itís 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. Donít be fooled by its light color. OG 16.2 Plato. April release.

From the tap. Pours light gold with a thin creamy head. Light toasty malt aroma. Tastes like sweet bready malts mixed with mild herbal flavors. Good body, light alcohol taste and spot-on carbonation. Nice.

harrisoni (14106) - 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. Itís pretty good pretty authentic. Hides the abv well and doesnít go over the top with the hops. Very drinkable, very good hop on the finish to balance the malt. Itís delicious, right up my maibock alley. Terrific.

KyotoLefty (6704) - 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 (14069) - 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. Itís full-bodied and soft on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Quite dryish. Thereís 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
