Notes/Commercial Description:
True Story! Running a brewery can be "bock" breaking. It's all worthwhile when you have the opportunity to share beer like this. Our Maibock/Helles Bock is deep golden in color with an intense malty almost grape like aroma and flavor. A light noble hop character balances the smooth sweet finish. A long lagering time makes this beer exceptionally drinkable for its strength. Don't be fooled by its light color.

If I hadn't read the label I would say it was a pilsner. Looks, smells, and even tastes like one. Can really smell and taste the sweet malt grain. Smells a little adjunct like- close to a Miller Lite. Taste a lot better than the aroma. A little tart with a slightly hoppy bitter finish. Crisp, very easy drinker. Good solid lager throughout.
