3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear golden, the white head doesn’t sustain itself very well. In the nose, the malts have cereal and creamy, faintly vanilla-ish notes to offer. The flavor is faintly sweet cereal up front, followed by a faint vanilla and buttery-milky-creamy notes on the mid-palate if you give them some time to unfold themselves, and has a very subtle grassy hop note in the finish, in which the alcohol is very well hidden. The texture is pleasantly thick and helps to accentuate the creamy flavor. While malty, this beer smells and tastes extraordinarily clean.
All of the notes, both in the nose and on the palate, are extremely subtle and will easily escape you if you don’t pay very close attention to them. Perhaps it comes off as not very expressive. Nevertheless, serve it at room temperature and (above all!) be attentive, and you will definitely get some enjoyment out of Andechs Bergbock Hell.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Golden, clear, medium fading head, not much lacing. S: Freshly cut suger beet, very agricultural. T: Slightly cloying sweetness mixed with a sharp peppery boozyness, malty with a slightly doughy finish. M: Body on the thick side, well carbonated, smooth. O: A decent bock, anyone expecting layer upon later might be disappointed, but this is what a Helles Bock should taste like.
