This is another beer I picked up from our local Wine and Ale specialty store. I really like this store, so I hope they stay in business! This heller bock was brewed by Einbecker in Germany. It poured a medium amber color, with a 3/4 inch white head, that left some lacing on the glass. The beer is pretty sweet, with caramel notes. It has enough hops to balance the sweetness, and has some alcohol in the finish. It is at 6.5 % alcohol. This is a fine example of a heller bock or Maibock.
