Pours pale yellow with no real head and minimal lacing. Smell is yeast and more yeast. Taste is yeastiness followed by a more mild breadiness. Taste is crisp but refreshing and not too dry. Could really dig this as an everyday beer in the early spring, or if I were drinking several in a row outside. Look forward to drinking again someday, outside with good company.

First had this when I was out in Milwaukee (2001-2005). Pours a dull golden with 2/3" white head, impressive retention. Aroma was grain. There was a smattering of hops to it.

Taste was similar to Rogue's dead guy. A mild hopping alongside a doughy malt biscuit underneath it. Carbonation is above average. A sourdough like lemon bread kind of feeling. More bitter than I thought about this style, but these are consistently more bitter than others. The ibu levels are probably between 30-40. I dunno, seems pretty much normal aside from the high carbonation. Big whoop.

This beer pours a pale gold with an average head. The aroma features biscuit and pizza crust malt, with springy, spicy hops, leafy greens, and just a touch of sweetness. The flavor follows the aroma, with biscuit malts dominant, as well as a aura of spicy hops, and a clean, very mild caramel sweetness. There is a crisp, almost vinous quality to the flavor as well. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall this is a lovely and balanced beer that is both easy drinking and intriguing.

Appearance- deep golden, clear, 3 finger head after staggered aggressive pour, receded to about 1 finger. Head is soft and pillowy

Aroma- starts sweet and breadth, blended with sharp floral hops. Hard to tell where one ends and the other begins

Taste- follows the nose, very full and rich sweet breadiness to start blending seamlessly into floral hops w/moderate bitterness. Slight lingering bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- medium body, super creamy texture that coats the mouth.

Overall- excellent beer. I will definitely get this one again.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 9/16/2016. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of honey, cracker, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Some apricot/apple fruitiness as it warms. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. A little too yeasty/fruity, but not overwhelming. Taste of big honey, cracker, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of honey, cracker, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, pepper, and flora/grassy/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Nicely clean on lager flavors; with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and fairly crisp balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.7%. Overall this is a very good helles bock. All around nice robustness and balance of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and quite refreshing to drink. Really well done for the style. A very enjoyable offering.
