COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale (Helles in German, orange colour), strong German lager brewed with 100% Organic malt and hops. A great big white head gives way to a sweet maltly note which is quickly followed by the aroma of alcohol. A rich malty flavour with hints of current and oranges is found on the first sip. The hops have a gentle bitterness to balance the malt. The alcohol is not a dominate flavour, but you certainly feel it after a glass or two.

Une visite au brewpub d’Ottawa. Un bock blond trop sucré à mon goût. Le malt domine et ce malt est très sucré. Un bock c’est sucré mais pas à ce point.

On tap @ Smoque Shack Ottawa. Pours a clear dark gold with a small white head. Aromas are of ripe berries, some malts and a little alcohol. Tastes are strong grainy malts, cereal, and alcohol. Creamy, bitter throughout.

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Draft sample. Dark gold in colour with medium carbonation. Fairly neutral aroma of pilsner malt and a bit of booze. Flavors are a blend of orange blossom honey, sweet pilsner malt, black pepper and minerals. Oddly boozy and heavy for such a pale looking beer. Not a fan.

solidfunk (3674) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Pretty rough. Maybe it’s just that I don’t like the style. Pours cloudy orange without much head or lacing. Finishes too sweet, too much sugar with candied malt. No real body, average carbonation. Tap at Mill St. Ottawa.

italarican (1476) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2013
On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Clear golden pour. Aroma of wheat malt and orange peel. Flavor is mild of anything more than malt with some slight diacetyl. Thin, crisp finish. Bland and not particularly interesting.

Draught at C’est What, Toronto
Light amber color, creamy head. Both the aroma and flavor provide a delicate and correct malt feeling; there is some fruity touch more typical of Ales than of Lagers; correct bitterness.
Pleasant Bock.

Clear gold with a thin lacy white head. Strong fruity peachy with a soft malt a overall bitterness. Smooth light body. Solid fruity malt taste. Very easy to drink. Peach, a light bitter hop finish. Great session.

Metalchopz (2212) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2012
Enjoyed at the Ottawa Brewpub with Lilihel on our first night there, with the ribs special and some nachos. Pours a golden colour with and amber hue and a small white head with minimal lace. The nose is malty with alcohol, hints of bananas and other fruits coming out in the finish. Warming mouthfeel with a little dryness from the hop, in the finish. Taste of sweet malts, well-balanced by the hop to cut into it, with fruit notes (oranges, bananas). Pretty decent Helles Bock that warms up, but does not overpower in any way.

MrFecesious (927) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2012
On tap at Ottawa brew pub. Clear golden colour. Aroma of gentle toffee and straw. Taste is better with some fruit maltiness that flattens out quick. Won't have it again.
