2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden from bottle without a lot of aroma. Has about a 2 finger head which dissipates quickly and doesn’t leave a lot of lacing. An interesting creaminess to the mouthfeel combined with some citrus in the hop flavor makes for an intriguing pilsner. Finishes clean.
