Served in their new ridiculous looking glass, it produced a big, fluffy offwhite head on top of a clear as day light golden orange. Aroma is spicy, herbal hops, light floral notes, light acidic, some grainy malts, light toast. Maybe, and just maybe, there’s a hint of smoke in there. As it warms, a little alcohol as well. More caramely on the tongue, it also feels breadier. A solid acidic and spicy bitter ends this on a semidry note. Light bodied and sparkly. This wasn’t bad, but it sort of falls between categories for me. Not a sessioner, not a sipper. And I can’t help but think how awesome this would have been with a slab of smoked malts in there. I guess I should stick to smoked bocks. By all means though, I liked this well enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Cardinal. Golden body with a dense off-white head. Aroma is refreshing fruity, some peaches, caramel and malt. Flavor is sweet malty, light caramel, hint of toast, fruity yeast and balanced bitter. Considering that Bock is not among my favorites, this is a really pleasant and outstanding sample.

50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Storo. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Malty aroma with notes of fruits and toffee with hints of hops, yeast and honey. Medium sweet, less sweet than expected and very well balanced. Finishes lightly dry with a blanced bitterness. Very nice bock!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap@Tilt, Oslo. A thin creamy white lace, covering a brilliant, shiny orange-brown body. Clean-smelling delicate malt aroma with suggestions og grains and toasted bread. A nice whiff from the noble hops. A more than medium sweet malt flavor. A light alcohol-sweetness away from a clean malt body. Toasted bread notes in the flavor as well, and a light apple-fruitiness. Healthy body. Oily to juicy in the mouth. Light bitter, sweet malty endnotes. Smells very nice and drinks ok, but the flavor is a tad too far on the sweet side for my likings. Overall, a more than decent Heller Bock.
