Brauerei Ott Hellerbock
Style: Heller Bock
Color: pale golden
Head: white, fluffy
Palate: rich and malty, touch of hops
Finish: finish could be drier
Served: on tap at the brewery
Impression: The brewpub was very busy so service was pretty bad. Beers were arriving with heads already dissipating, not typical of Bavaria. My first beer was disappointing but this bock was a bit better. It was certainly a well enough made Bock but the finish was a bit lacking so overall, not a special beer.
Oddly enough, I saw this in a bottle a year later and decided to give it another try. Even stranger, the bottled version was better or I had a better frame of mind. In any case, by all means try it. I know if I see it on tap again, it will be the first thing I order.
Next beer or back to the beer list.
