What a lager! Cloudy orange color, sweet and strong body, it feels like an ale. One of the best lager so far.

Looks like a slightly darker pale lager and it smells like lager too but maybe a little sweeter onthe olfactory with a tad of dull hops. First taste is alky citrusy and malty bitter, Does have some old hop character down inside. A little heavy for a spring beer, eh? Yes, does little to hide the alky content. could be there is some medium ale hop effect in there. Bitter lingering mediicine.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 15, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a deep golden straw color with a short creamy whitish head. Light aroma of sweet malts and a subtle hint of hops. Taste has some citrus crispness upfront followed by a bold malt sweetness that is broken up a little by some floral hops and a slight bitterness in the finish. Mainly malty sweet with very little hops. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2011
12oz. Bottle: Faint aroma of malt, grain, slight caramel, and a hint of noble hops. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, noble hops, grain, and a hint of honey. Light to medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, lightly bitter, malt, noble hop finish is dry. 7.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

mansquito (3399) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2011
From my dear brother: Pours a perfect pour, with a nice frothy white head and a golden orange body. Aroma is of candy, a touch of hops, sugar, and bread. The taste is what was the real surprise. Heller Bocks are a notoriously difficult style and this one knocked most of them out of the water. No alcohol burn (big plus!). Really smooth. Slight sweetness, with sort of bubblegum and European candy notes (difficult thing to explain...). A subdued hop bitterness is also present. Basically, my expectations were low, but instead I got one of the better Heller Bocks I’ve ever had.

TheBeerGod (5254) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle. Orange-amber pour with a medium, frothy white head. Aroma is rather hoppy and floral with hints of biscuit, caramel, and spicy notes. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, spicy hops, biscuit, and grassy/herbal hops. Body is medium with a creamy, chewy carbonation. Finishes with more spicy and herbal hops, caramel, dried fruit, biscuit, and sweet malt.

haddon90 (1468) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light, clear amber color with a nice, frothy head. Nice, hoppy/malty mix in the aroma. Light citrus taste with a hint of grapefruit. A little bit of hops. Nice mix, actually. Dry finish that lingers around.

Clear light amber with good off white head. noble hop and spicy flavor finish but a little buttery and grainy. it is what it is i guess...
