Scratch 53-2011 is a classic overachiever. As the first beer brewed on our new pilot system we wanted to create an easy-to-drink traditional Helles lager that might become a regular draft beer in our Tasting Room.
However, due to an incredibly efficient extraction rate in the lauter tun we have been blessed with a Helles Bock – the slightly bigger brother to our initially-desired Helles. In all honesty, we are not disappointed.
The floor-malted Bohemian Pils delivers a distinctive nutty flavor with a bready finish. This taste is counter balanced by Hersbrucker noble hops’ distinctive spicy notes. Finally a slight yeast flavor comes through delicate beer. Cheers!
