Weeping Reaper Blood Orange Helles Bock (2017 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 copper colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of orange, citrus rind, toffee and floral hops.  The flavour is of earth, citrus rind, orange, toffee, mild bitterness and some grain.  The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 26.  Once again this year the flavour of this beer has changed up a bit.  I quite enjoyed this edition of the beer.

Commercial Description:  A HAUNTING GOLDEN LAGER WITH A SPLASH OF CITRUS, A SWEET CARESS OF FRUIT HOP FLAVOUR AND AROMA, AND A BRISK DRY FINISH.
