TChrome (1409) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Beer pours pale golden color with a nice fluffy egg white head that is retained. This beer is obviously not brewed to style. Aroma is hoppy and spicy. Taste is primarily sweet with some bitterness. Not an amazing beer, but I suppose a better Heller Bock.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Pours clear golden / copper with a white head. The aroma has thick caramel bock malt, earthy / spicy hops, white bread and smooth lager yeast. Medium / thick body with a modest amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with spicy / earthy / dirty hops, some of the aroma malt, but this is pretty hop heavy. The finish is maltier, but still fairly dry and hop forward. Nice bock.

Onslow (1129) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Pour from a 22oz bottle. Clear pale yellow brew with white head. Nice aroma dominated by grassy and floral hops. Taste is sweet malt, grass, light aromatic hops. Nice bit at the finish is dampened by a lingering bit of sweetness. Really good!

Not bad but not something I’d drink a whole lot of. Though I usually like hoppy beers, this one is a little too grassy.
