3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Sweet clean malty nose. Medium body, very solid and sweet malts, no presence of alcoholic taste detectable. Expected a more hoppy bitterness though. Definitely one of the better Bock beers in Switzerland.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Courtesy of & thanks to Kraddel. 33 cl. bottle sampled @ “Poppyland Sucks Tasting” @ the Barely legal tasting room..Hazy golden with little white head. Smells like spoiled yoghurt, rotting eggs and grains. Tastes like spoiled yoghurt, sweet malts, grains, bitter hay in the back, sugar and dash of spoiled eggs. Soda-like body. Not good at all, somewhat drinkable still.

Aroma: lightly sweet malts, some alcohol, tropical fruits. Appearance: yellow, medium white head. Taste: medium sweet, light bitter. Palate: malty sweets continue, some honey. Overall: OK Heller Bock, nothing too special though. Bottle from COOP Switzerland.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden with slight hazyness, rocky cream head. Carbonated at nose, cereals and malts with dark honey, hops and some metallic feeling. Sweet with quite bitter ending. Cereals and simple malts, again some dark honey (hanuka), hops. Easily drinkable, but tends to be too bitter at the end for a balanced feeling.

Clear deep yellow, white head. Aroma is clean, malty. Medium bodied, sweet malts, very few hops. A bit alcoholic. (was at times the only remaining Heller Bock in Switzerland. Nice that it survived, but there are now some more interesting ones.)

Yellow, clear, bubbly, nice mouthfeel, kinda grassy, I’m not really getting the hops. Drinkable, wouldn’t hunt it down, but if I was in Switzerland looking for a beer, I could do worse.
