Scratch Beer 69 - 2012 (More Helles, Less Bock) | Tröegs Brewing Company
Tröegs Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
Style: Maibock / Helles Bock
Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%
Availability: Limited (brewed once)
Notes / Commercial Description:
More Helles, Less Bock is an easy-drinking lager that blurs the lines between Helles, Bock and Maibock styles. At 5.6% ABV, 21 IBU, and light straw color, Scratch #69 portrays itself as a Helles; but inside the glass lurks a more complex beer reminiscent of the Bock style. Aromatic toasted chestnuts and hints of honeysuckle flower present themselves before the first sip. After tasting More Helles, Less Bock you will immediately want more. The floor-malted barley gives an earthy flavor that pairs with the hints of bitterness from Tradition. The finish is sweet and malty, yet still refreshing; a light filtration adds bread notes at the end.
