Elysian Ambrosia Maibock

Elysian Ambrosia Maibock
Heller (pale) bock

Ratebeer 3.22 62nd percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +3

I love a good bock, they are usually a little on the sweet side. This one gave a nose of pale malt, grains and only the slightest of floral hops. After a good dose of carbonation, you were touched by an assertive floral hop bitterness up front. This then relaxed into a caramel and earthy sweetness. As the brew warmed up a slight, tart and astringent apricot flavour appeared.

Aftertaste +1

It was a nice ending mix of floral hops and caramel sweetness with grass. There was almost a lemony lingering.

Alcohol Content 0 5.9%

It is a brew meant to be enjoyed, not knock over.

Value +1

This was a great beer; I believe it cost me $5 for a 650ml bomber.

Ingame Enhancement +1

I must never say that I will only play one round. You can never quit after one round.

Overall 6/10

This was a lovely lighter bock, sweet and floral. A very easy drinking beer with lots of flavour.
