On tap at the Rock Bottom on 16th/Curtis in downtown Denver - tapped 6/20/2013. Enjoyed 2 pints following our stint at the AIA Expo at the nearby Colorado Convention Center - the local chapter of Architects handed out coasters entitling the holder to one free pint as a thank you ~ cool! On them: "BUILDING BOCK has been crafted exclusively for the 2013 AIA National Convention in Denver"

ABV: 6.6%
IBU: 30

A: Pours showcase a copper/amber hue that shines brightly when held to sun-drenched windows, a multitude of small carbonation bubbles and a frothy finger of whitish foam. Retention of the head is good (holds 2-3 minutes) and lacing is pretty.

S: Enticing aroma that's grain-forward: roasted nuttiness and honey/earthy/grassy notes.

T: Sturdy malt base, although grassier and 'dry hay' tasting, i.e. not as sweet as many of the style I've tried. A bit of a mineral/chalky note to the finish and a hop backing with rooty spice and even a hint of pepper.

M: Rather crisp, assertive initially, then mellowing to a more mouth-filling, vaguely sticky maltiness. On a hot day, served cool - not cold - making for a refreshing pintful. Alcohol/phenol is pretty well hidden.

O: Very likeable and well-crafted helles. Pleasing aroma and flavors, good balance. Glad to have had the chance to try a couple of these.
