Weeping Reaper Blood Orange Helles Bock (2016 Edition) – Dead Frog Brewery

From Aldergove’s Dead Frog Brewery comes their “Weeping Reaper Blood Orange Helles Bock” a flavoured lager.  The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of bready and grainy malts, citrusy orange and floral hops.  The flavour is of orange, citrus, citrus rind, grainy and bready malts, earth and hops bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 26.  While a typical Helles Lager is not a style that I would usually drink this Blood Orange Helles Bock is quite tasty.
