From Aldergove’s Dead Frog Brewery comes their new “Weeping Reaper Blood Orange Helles Bock” a very flavourful style of lager. The beer pours a copper colour with a slightly off white head. The aroma consists of bready malts, citrus and blood orange. The flavour is of bready malts, caramel, citrus, citrus rind, blood orange and some hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 26. Helles Bock is not a style I know all that well but this one tastes great especially because the flavour seems to evolve as you drink it. I recommend picking up a bottle to try it for yourself.
Recommended glassware from brewery: Hollowed out skull of your enemy. I just used a whiskey snifter personally though.
Commercial Description: A warm golden lager with a splash of citrus and slight caress of fruity hop flavour and aroma. Premium European malts and hops result in a brew that’s light in colour but not in body with a perfectly balanced finish.
