Growler filled from the tap at Victory.
Poured a copper/yellow color with a frothy off-white head that left nice lacing on the glass. The aroma was very malty with hints of fruit and citrus. The taste started with plenty of upfront toasted malt flavor and some caramel notes blended with a wee bit of earthiness and alcohol. The longer it was in your mouth the fruitier and more floral it became. The finish was very refreshing and crisp with the first notable appearance of hop bitterness joining the balance of malt sweetness and citrus flavors. Aftertaste was a pleasant maltiness with lingering notes of alcohol and citrus. Mouthfeel was smooth yet with a crispness to it and the body was medium.
Overall another nice brew from the folks at Victory. A nice balance and complexity for a Helles Bock IMHO.

On tap at The Owl House in Rochester, NY.

Pours a slightly cloudy light orange, with a small half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells kinda faint and weak, unfortunately. A little bit of grassy noble hoppiness, but not much else.

Tastes a little faint and uninspired, too. Some light grassiness, with not much noticeable malt flavor, other than some light cracker, and some light breadiness/doughiness. Some slight lager yeast. Just not a whole lot to get excited about here, unfortunately.

Light bodied, crisp mouthfeel, slightly watery.

A rare forgettable brew from Victory, I thought they would've knocked this one right out of the park.

This is a realy old bottle and already has tons of floaties. It tastes fine however, so I decided to have it and review it. It was Enjoy By April 2011. This beer is probably 3 years old then.

The aroma has lots of bready malt.

The flavor definitely tastes like a maibock. Lots of breadiness and caramel sweetness, some spiciness and herbal hops. There’s also some fruity esters in there too. The middle hits you with a bit of alcohol, but it’s not very offensive.

The finish is pretty dry, despite the sweet flavor.

Actually a very well done beer. Quite tasty and even better than certainly doppelbock options out there.
