Red Brick Helles Bock

On-tap at Taco Mac, Marietta, GA, USA. $4.50 for the 16oz pour.
Very attractive golden, orange hue that had good clarity, nice carbonation and a decent white head and some good lace. A close look at the body seems to reveal a little oily, viscous nature – more of that later.
Taste is relatively crisp and refreshing, but ends with a surprisingly large alcohol taste. Not sure if it was actually the alcohol, or whether it was just a “taste” of alcohol. The mouthfeel is a bit viscous, and together these factors seems to make this drink above it’s published ABV. The aftertaste is also a bit of an odd, yeasty, malty mess that ligers a bit.
To be honest, not a bad crack at the style. One of the better efforts by a brewery that struggles to impress.
