Vokuhila is a strong pale lager. 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.

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. I’m enjoying this on the patio where the neighbor has just cut his grass, so that may be what I’m catching most of in the nose. But then there’s 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.

Cunningham (5000) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2015
Hazy dark golden color with a fine off white head. Ok lacing. Malty and a bit herbal aroma. Medium (+) body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Malty, some toffee and herbal flavor. Decent ok beer. But probably nothing I will drink again. Cool label. Probably the reason I bought it.

cpetrone84 (1564) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pour is dark golden amber with lots of white head and some larger bubbles with a fair bit of lace. Nose is heavily malted and a bit stale, lots of caramel malts, overly toasted, lots of sugar. Taste follows suit, a little less stale, way too much sugar, lots of caramel malts and toasted grains, very little hop profile and no clean grains. Syrupy feel, soft carb, too big and full.

(draft @ Local Option - Chicago, IL) Clear orange with a frothy white head. Light aroma of sweet malts and some toasted nuts as well. Flavor is light but sweet at the same time. Good malt flavor and a lightly sweet aftertaste.

skortila (4648) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2014
Bottled. The aroma has strong grassy hops/hay, some caramel and biscuits. Bit hazy, copper coloured beer with a medium, off-white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has bread/biscuit, some caramel malts, grassy hops, some spicy tones. Light-medium bodied. Could probably be a bit more easy drinking. But nevertheless, a nice beer.

ChainGangGuy (4430) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2014
10 ounce pour - $6.50 at Argosy in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: An orangesque body with a slight haze to it, capped by a slim, white coating.

Smell: Lightly sweet-scented, bready malts given a little hint of orange marmalade and an edge of spicy herb.

Taste: Bready maltiness, hinting a little mealy, grainy quality and sweetness akin to a small pour of simple syrup. A light fruitiness (curiously orangesque like its appearance), a little hop spiciness. Minor alcohol. Subtle sustained graininess through to the semi-dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Decent, drinkable fare.

Jamedra (579) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 30, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je velmi příjemné, připomíná medové perníčky s lehkým nádechem skořice a cereálií. Pěna je bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je slunečně oranžová a kalná. Chuť má velmi lahodný nádech medu s obalem čerstvě vymačkané mandarinkové šťávy na solidním sladově cereálním základu, finiš je méně suše hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má střední říz a je dobře pitelné. Jedná se o velmi originální počin s lahodným aroma i chutí.
