Pours a clear golden color with a loose bright white 1/2" head. Medium amount of lace.

Sweet pale malts in the nose engulfed in a sweet honey scent. After a few brisk swirls of my pounder pint glass, I experience a heavenly honey glazed roasted almond smell - very wonderful.

The flavors are sweet pale malts (once again) with a soft malty backbone atop a slightly prickly hop dryness that gives way more to mouthfeel than to flavor, but just enough hop presence to keep the sweet malts from becoming too overpowering. There's a faint astringent alcohol presence at the end that's pronounced with dryness rather than a warming sensation. Honey and earthy elements are in here as well.

Mouthfeel is spectacular. The carbonation is very fine and active, but definitely knows its place. A well placed dryness at the finish that's quick and to the point. On the lighter side of medium bodied.

Drinkablility is absurd. I could easily drink 3-4 of these on a hot day with no problem. Quenching and satisfying.

Overall a very nice helles bock. I love how the finish is dry and everything leading up to the finish is sweet and delicate. Quite a beautifully balanced spot-on domestic rendition of a hard-to-nail style. Excellent for sure!

from the bottle. poured a honey with a white head that didn’t stay around very long but left some lacing. aroma sugar, yeast, light fruits like pears, apples. flavor, almost a cotton candy type of sweetness, malts, wow is this beer sweet, almost to the point of being too sweet.
