Impression: This is a fairly new on the radar brewery for me but after having a few of their beers in bottles and also enjoying a meal and a few of their beers on tap at the brewery’s pub, I don’t shy away from buying their products when I see them. I was happy to find this Hellerbock and a gorgeous one it was on pouring. It’s quite potent at 7.5%, especially for the style and while smooth, the alcohol permeates throughout. That said, it’s got some fair hopping and the finish is on the dry side with just enough bitterness to make it about as moreish as the potency will allow.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
