From tasting notes from a visit to the brewery on 3/1/11.
Ordered a 20oz draft of the spring seasonal Helles Bock. Presented in nice hefe glass, very crisp clear straw; light white head that ringed the glass and clings with some lacing, very nice.
Smell is a nice pilsner malt aroma, lightly sweet and bicuity with just a touch of astrigency.
Taste is nice big pilsner malt front, with light sweetness, with a hint of fruitiness, like grapefruit followed with a touch of estery alcohol (not out of place).
Mouthfeel is well balanced, good carbonation to keep flavors balanced throughout and the malt sweetness is not overdone.
Overall, a great helles bock, very glad to find this one in northern AZ on spring transitional day with some snow on the ground but the bright sun keeping us warm.
Serving type: on-tap
