Our special lager for the season. Golden color, a bit strong and more hoppy than traditional Hellesbock. Like all our beers, we obtain our ingredients from the country which the style originated. This lager is rich and sophisticated.

Really fine example of the style. Lightly floral in aroma, a little sweet in taste with some surprising hop bitterness. Great for warm weather.

Half pour at the brewery. Really nice- favorite of the 3 half pours. Yellow with nice orange hue. Decent, tight white head. Notes of flowers and citrus on the palate. Nicely balanced with hops in finish, but not overly bitter. Actually leans towards the sweet side. Finishes crisp as a lager should- but with added interest of hops. Great summer beer- thoroughly enjoyable.

bubbleflubber (1898) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2012
On draught at the brewery, this pours an orange tea hue into the glass with a light sudsy cap that leaves thin soap lacing. Lots of country silage and grains in the bouquet. Flavors of orange and caramel up front, with hops and citrus closing the pull. Mouthfeel is medium, yet substantive to the palate. Some bitters linger appropriately. Decent brew for a summer evening. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to pint at Wedge. Looks fine; lagerish with low carbonation and thin lacing. Smells pretty good; like a hoppy helles. Tastes solid; a hoppy lager. Good on the palate too. Nice.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Serving: Draft at the brewery. It pours a yellow orange color. Slightly citrusy in the nose. Fruity, candy like taste. Clean finish. A little on the sweet side. Medium bodied with lower carbonation. Not half bad.

Draft @ the brewery. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty bready grainy aroma with hints of caramel. Fruity sweetish malty bready caramel flavor. Has a sweetish malty caramel finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Cloudy yellow-orange with minimal lacing. Medium-plus aroma smells rich and smooth-bread, grain and nuts. The palate is very well balanced with more bread dough, nuts and orchard fruits. A Really nice all-around beer.
