Game Day Beer Review: Red Brick Brewing's Helluva Bock
(7.00% ABV). Poured into a pilsner glass, Red Brick's Helluva Bock appears bright and golden, like the late Spring day on which I drank it. The beer is malty on the nose, and the taste confirms it, with perhaps just a touch of honey sweetness. There's little to distinguish this beer: it's mild-mannered and straight forward, but not the best of it's style. It's nothing to write home about. Maybe it's just a southern thang? B-.
