COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vokuhila is a strong lager brewed by Local Option Bierwerker. This Helles Bock is golden in color with a large, creamy, persistent white head; aromatically driven by robust toast and bread notes derived from continental European pale malts with moderate spice from noble German hops. Vokulhila will be appreciated by lager and mullet enthusiasts alike worldwide.

Tap. Dark gold pour. Aroma of tart fruit and malt. Taste is of some tart sourness. Balanced and drinkable.

This is an awesome heller bock, malty and bitter all at the some time. Slightly cloudy, amber in color, a definite pungent citrus undertone lays the way way to my heart.

Deep orange colored bottle pour. Comes out with a creamy head. An interesting lager - creamy on the mouthfeel. Comes across as almost a strong english ale. Floral and bready. Not bad at all.

I have consumed this a couple times while I lived in Chicago the past year. Finally bought a 500mL just to rate it at the very end of my time. Generally, this beer has an acceptable level of sulpheric aroma and herbal lager. Flavor is strong white malt with similar herbal and sulphur finish. Its a light too thick in flavor, not light and bright as I would like. However, I am not disappointed when I drink this.

500ml bottle. Filtered-looking orange body, but a little haze so who knows. Steady, solid, creamy off-white head. Bready, mild aroma, some earthy noble hop. A pretty tasty Heller Bock. Comes off a little fruitier, in an ale way, than Id expect from the style. Still has quite a nice amount depth. More boldly hopped than most European examples. Im a sucker for interesting German styles and variations, so this works for me.

This pours a golden amber color with an average head. The aroma is mild with hops and yeast. The taste is unique and not what I was expecting. Certainly there is room for improvement but this is fairly decent and worth a try.

Gotta give it props for how it looks in the glass. Deeper gold color than a "regular" beer, lots of bubbles feeding frothy head. Like a Schlitz gone native. Im enjoying this on the patio where the neighbor has just cut his grass, so that may be what Im catching most of in the nose. But then theres a pretty rich German malt underneath. taste is full of biscuity, well-turned, but still lightly kilned malt. Alcohol is pretty up front, and may even be a distraction. Hop bitterness is largely there to counteract malts, like a well-behaved German noble hop would. Though I think Local Option only pays lip service to meeting style guidelines, this is indeed a "bright" bock that others could learn a thing or two from.

Golden pour, smooth, bready, well bodied, frothy, somewhat dry, balanced, sweet.

574deadzone (1025) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange-gold with a thicker eggshell head that leaves some soapy, spotty lace. Nose involves sweet malt, hop spice, cellar character, with light peach and citrus tones. Quite sweet, fairly bitter. Medium to full bodied, fairly oily, active, with fair spicy hop bitter finish. Good stronger lager.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a hazy golden coloured beer with tart citrus and toffee flavours, peppery hop notes and a spicy lemon fruity finish.
