3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, thanks pivnizub! Very hoparomatic nose: Grapefruit and flowers. Golden, low visible carbonation, low head. Honeyish malt base accented by very nice flowery hops, a bit citric on the finish.Medium chewy body, nice wellagerd sparkly on the palate. Flavourfull and hoppy, yet no tendency to soapyness on the long run - very süffig. Excellent!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (purchased at the pivovar): Deep golden coloured, smaller off-white layer, sticking to the glass, sweet-malty, bisquity nose with a very well detectable dash of herbal hops; solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; distinctive aromatic-hoppy traces in the smooth bitter-sweet finish. Great! Not sweet, very well balanced Bock...........

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Clear, deep golden colour with a medium-sized foamy white head. Moderately sweet, slightly bready and a bit perfumed malt aroma with honey, citrus and spicy herbal hops in the background. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, full bodied with a soft carbonation. Pale malt-character with a tinge of honey; sweet and slightly bitter malt-accented finish with a soft but balancing herbal hoppy touch. The alcohol is well-embedded. Decent Bock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. A yellow beer - very light even for a Heller Bock with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty - very sweet that is, with quite strong notes of alcohol, leading to a dry and slightly bitter and alcoholic finish. Quite simple, more warming.

(On tap) Clear, pilsener golden with a white head. Aroma of pure malt and alcohol. Full body with sweetish malty and quite refined accents of hops - floral, almost perfumy. A very delicate and harmonious Heller Bock without much bitterness. 081106

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2011 Only a slight malty apricot aroma. Very fruity flavor (pineapple, apricot), with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Bottle, bought at the Lamm Brewery in Untertheres, tasted 23.06.04. Unconvincing, but at least is alcohol is well masked.
Bottle, tasted 29.11.11. Blonde. Maltaroma with soft floral notes. Malty sweet, bready flavor with pear drups and hints of alcohol. Some floral hops. Firm bock.
