4.16/5 rDev +7.8%
A- Beautiful crystal-clear golden body with a huge, fluffy just off-white head.
S- Sweet malts, hints of floral hops, yeasty bread, slight citrus component.
T- Really similar to the aroma. Sweet, bready malts are there, but the big surprise is the noticeable hop flavor that adds an herbal component and some bitter, lemony citrus. Really great balance of bready malts and bitterness.
M- Medium bodied, but very drinkable with a lingering stickiness and slight alcohol presence. Compared to most helles bocks, this one appears to be slightly higher in abv, but drinks closer to a 5-6% beer.
O- I really like the balance, the flavor and the drinkability. This one definitely follows the trend of hoppy lagers, but is very nicely done and shows it's bock roots.

4.01/5 rDev +3.9%
Bottle purchased from Nathaniel Square Corner Store.
Pours a light, golden yellow, fairly fizzy. Half inch head, not much in the way of lacing.
Smells floral and grassy. Pretty light but pleasant aroma here.
The tastes include biscuity malt, mild fruit (pears, possibly), floral hop flavors, cut grass, very mild German yeast bitterness.
Crisp, sharp, well carbonated. Great mouthfeel on this one.
A very easy drinking and tasty maibock. Would like to get more of this.

4.25/5 rDev +10.1%
Brewed a mere 2 weeks ago. Poured into a pint glass
Appearance: golden color with a hint of orange and a white fluffy head. Lots of ascending bubbles, nice lacing and retention
Smell: floral hops are the most noticeable smell. They blend nicely with the rest of the earthy aroma
Taste: again, floral hops right up front. Some nice carmaly sweetness along with some breadiness. A bit of citrus and grape in the aftertaste
Mouth feel: crisp carbonation and a relatively light body make this go down very easily. Along with the taste, I would have guessed a slightly lower ABV
Overall: This is a pretty unique and enjoyable helles bock. It is dominated by the floral hops and earthy malts which makes the name and theme of the beer quite fitting. I was excited when I first saw that Troegs was doing another bock, and this did not dissapoint. I'll definitely have it again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Willi Becher. Moderate hand. Label reads Batch 131219, dated 013114.
A: Inviting golden body with nice clarity. 1 finger of white, sudsy foam. Ok retention. Light lacing.
S: Nice pale malt with grass, straw. Fruity hop notes, white grape, pear. Traces of noble-type hops drift in-and-out.
T: Sweetness with prominent white grape up front. Mild hop bitterness develops slowly and takes its time washing over the malt-fueled grain notes. Semi-dry finish. Lingering toasted bread, continued grape in the aftertaste. Alcohol is largely undetectable.
M: Moderate carbonation with a relatively full body. Surprisingly substantial on the palate.
O: Interesting and tasty. Very grape forward IMO. Reminded me of Victory's Hop Ranch. Highly quaffable - this one disappeared on me. Twice!

This beer is clear bright orange. Great head and retention. Not much scents going on. Almost macro smelling dare I say it. I really like the flavor of this beer. Has a Hells lager flavor profile with a little more sweetness and a little more hop finish than most German contemporaries. This is a fine beer by Troegs. This also is the best Helles Bock I've sampled to date. I will definitely look to buy more of this one.
