2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 mL can from sales rep. Pours a golden orange with a huge frothy white head that bubbles away slowly. Aroma is rich in malts, but smells of grain alcohol. Taste is medium-full bodied, and the alcohol is not masked at all. Hoppy bitterness mixes with the bitter taste of alcohol, and there’s nothing there to make it worthwile.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can pours a bright clear golden color with a 2 and a half finger bubbly white head that retains quite well leaving some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and grass. Taste is a sharp spicy grass hop bitterness with a light fruit and malty sweetness. An interesting blend of flavor in this brew that make it enticing and a refreshing experience.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is just bad. Pours clear light amber with a small white top. Aroma is corn straw malts that overpower anything else. Taste is almost disgusting sweetness and corn from the malts. Can’t really detect hops maybe some caramel. Just blech.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light clear straw colored pour, small sticky white head. Aroma of corn, light hay, and some cereals. Not the greatest y any stretch.....
Flavor is sweet, and bready, with for corny sweetness. It lacks a nice grassy hop not to balance out the sweetness of the malts.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473ml can. Clear golden yellow, good sized white head. Aroma is cereal and apple juice. A little sweet and sour taste from both of those. A bit of herbal hops on the finish. Overall, this didn’t do a whole lot for me good of bad. Decent Bock style lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
473 mL Can. Gold body with a rich frothy 3-finger off white head settling to a film leaving thick stringy lace.Aroma of sweet light malts, pungent yet subtly evergreen hops,honey, and wildflowers. A fruity-herbal explosion dominates the flavor with a phenolic honey and mustard aftertaste transmuting to a grapefruit - bubblegum finish. Very peculiar in the mouth -like I want to try it again "next week or something".

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can: puts a dark gold clear lager in the glass. 3finger puffy cap laces the glass. Aroma us burly with malt tones and some sweetness a little musty. Thin bodied for a heller bock. Flavor resembles an Okocim strong lager – robust malts- almost sweet ample hop balance for a bock…finish turns a bit bitter and dry. Not a bad effort and a sturdy lager but a far cry from a German Heller Bock.
