Impression: I saw some beer from an unknown brewery to me and mistook it for Stohs closer to Ebelsbach. It turned out to be from a village next to Ostheim and we drove by it on the way out of town. Picked this up for the cool label as much as anything and that’s about all she wrote. It’s a reminder of how hard it is to brew a good Hellerbock. It’s a very simple Bock: richly malty with alcohol prominent in the nose and palate. It’s a bit sticky in the lingering finish but not insanely so considering how one dimensionally malty it is. I’ll buy one of their regular line-up beers before writing them off since I’ve had worse of this admittedly overdone style and they brew a couple of lower gravity traditional styles.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
