Notes/Commercial Description:
A light golden colored Franconian style Helles Lager. With a slightly sweet malt body, a noble hop profile and a crisp finish this beer is as traditional as we’ll ever get.

Gorch Fock, 2011 bomber purchased for $6.49.

Served in New Belgium globe glass

A: Pours clear straw with large, creamy, white head that is quite persistent. Wonderful clarity and effervescence. 

S: Strong malt aromas, ranging from toast to grains to light corn. A touch of lemony/citrusy hops reminds you that Three Floyds brewed this beer. Otherwise, clean. 

T: Malty sweetness catches tongue unawares, but transitions seamlessly to toasty/grainy/corny malts. The hops seem to be adding some spiciness now. Medium-light bitterness helps crisp finish. 

M: Relatively big bodied considering low abv. The carbonation has enough vigor to hold up body. The mouthfeel, then, is heavier than one would expect for style, but it works fir this beer and does not take away from experience. 

O: I find Gorch Fock to be a pleasant, sessionable beer that, while not typical of style, falls well within its parameters. A really well-made lager that I highly recommend.

bomber poured into tulip cup

A- Pale straw yellow with good carbination and white head. No lacing
S- Many levels of maltyness
T- Classic pale German Lager taste. Layers of malt... sweet.. little bitter
M- Bit more on the wet than dry side for a lager. Good carbination.

O- Good for the german lager style. Not my go-to style, so I may be under-rating this beer.
