More of that peachy amber maibock color vs the golden versions. Head is a thin cover. Some lace with poor reach. Tendrils don't hold.
Nose has musty grain, fruity esters, hop grit, and quieter yeast aromas. Spells golden apple, apricot, pear, and herbal humulus. Very nice.
Lots of toasted barley malt, grassiness, and late hop bitterness. Pilsner-esque finish with that alkaline hoppiness and lawn trimming flavor. Slightly metallic, but that's forgivable after the fruit play. Apricot and white grape. All in all, very grainy flavors with a rigorous bittering hop presence.
Cerebral Pourtex has some slowdown alcohol heat, but the propulsion remains with the bitter bitiness. The body is medium, but that spiciness adds dimension. Saved by the bubbles.
Pretty tasty ale. Smells fruitier than it tastes. Deviating from classic representation, but still a decent helles bock.
Serving type: on-tap

32 oz growler poured into a tulip pint.
Golden-amber with 1 finger of creamy, white head. Excellent clarity with moderate carbonation.
Banana, caramel, pear, and golden apple.
Bread and caramel maltiness. Golden delicious apple, pear, and hints of banana. Has a surprisingly good amount of peppery alcohol heat on the finish along with earthy hop notes and toasted bread.
Medium bodied, silky, smooth, clean, and crisp.
Smooth and malty with a pleasant alcohol presence. I like it. Try it. Do it. Do it.
Serving type: growler
