Impression: I’ve had this a few times on tap so it was nice to pick up a few bottles of it since it was unlikely I’d get up there with the COVID restriction in effect. It poured a bit darker than the draft version, heading in the amber direction. While it’s a Hellerbock, it’s one of the darker ones anyway and has a very full body and richly malty palate. That said, there are plenty of hops to make for a long semi-dry, bittersweet finish. Quite nice at 6.8%.
