3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery in Debring, unfiltered from keg. Lightly hazed amber with a fine white head. Aroma impression is clover honey, nut oils, seed bread, faint soapy esters and quiet German noble hops (the ubiquitous floral lemon and pepper). Full bodied and rich, sticky, peppery, nutty and seedy retronasal. Fine carbonation delivers nutty pastry maltiness, and the mouth feel is rich and full. Long noble hop peppery finish. Delicious, balanced and clean, this lip smacking heller bock may be one of the best in Oberfranken.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. An orange beer - quite light in color even for a Heller Bock with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with quite strong notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of alcohol that hits early, but then comes notes of caramel, before the alcohol returns, and leads to a dry alcoholic finish.

(On tap) Beautiful, clear amber golden with a dense, off-white head with good retention. Sweetish, lightly caramelish aroma. Medium body with sweetish notes of caramel malt. Lightly hoppy finish. Yet another solid German Bock in style somewhere between A Dunkler and a Heller Bock. 091106
