Notes/Commercial Description:
What more can be said about this beer that hasn't already been tweeted about? Well, if you've been living on Mars then you don't know that this beer is Named after the Mighty Carl, Patron Saint of many STL bars, and will only be on planet Earth for a short time. The beer itself was brewed as a HellesBock which is simply a lighter colored, hoppyish-lager that is brewed to a stronger strength (Bock). The Man himself is much harder to describe. Some would say Charming. Some would say Handsome and Debonair. Some would even claim him to be Charitable, Friendly and Trustworthy. Who are these people? #thanksforpaintingandtuckpointingourentirebuildingcarl

3.98/5  rDev +17.4%

On tap at The Bridge in St. Louis on 7/2/12.

A - Poured a clear, amber color with a one-finger, white head of foam. It left some sudsy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of caramel and toffee with some floral notes.

T - It tasted very spiced with sweet caramel and toffee. Good balance with a touch of bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied lager with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a pretty nice helles bock. Another solid offering by The Civil Life.

On tap at Shamrocks.

A: Served a deep copper color with a small head and just bits of lacing.

S: Aroma is mild with roasted malt, bit of grain and spice.

T: Taste follows with a mild roasted malt, mix of caramel and bit of honey. Has a easy bitterness and dry finish.

F: Fairly medium body, subtle crispness, smooth and nicely balanced.

O: Good beer for the style.

Pours a clear, copper/gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of slight hop, sweet malt, slight pale malt, and a hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of a Maibock / Helles Bock. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, hops, slight sweet malt, slight caramel malt and a hint of sugar. Overall, good appearance, aroma, feel, but lacking in blend; again this was way too sweet for the style.
