Local Option Voku Hila

This is a 6.0% ABV Maibock lager from Local Option. The bottles are brewed and bottled by Pub Dog Brewing in Westminster, Maryland, but Local Option is a pub from Chicago, Illinois, with their own brewing division called Bierwerker.

The beer pours an orange honey golden in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy head that is white to off-white in color. The aroma is malty, sweet potatoes especially, tangy, fruity, grassy. The taste is rich and malty, fruity, tangy, yeasty, grassy, with a bitter finish that is somewhat metallic. It is medium bodied, smooth, with a subtle carbonation. This is a really nice beer except for the metallic note.
