Thick rough foam. Weak aroma, however, reveals a bit of malt and hops. The taste is pleasant malty and tang of some fruit and caramel. Hop bitterness is long and sustained without stifling malt sweetness. Type real and delicate without ever being surprising.

Bottle from VP Aker Brygge enjoyed at home
Golden clear, massive creamy white head. Smell of hay, hints of grass and dust, quite alot of light malts, a herbal touch. Medium sweet, hay and newly cut grass, nice malt base, quite clean flavors with no yeast influence, moderate bitter finish. Quite true to style, but somehow more interesting than most heller bocks i’ve tried.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, brown cheese, grains, pale malts and hints of almonds, marzipan and nougat. Taste is grains, malty sugary tones, mild caramel, pale malts and hints of almonds and faint nougat. Full body, medium to soft carbonation. Heller Bock has always struck me as something of a misplaced genre; not quite a bock, not quite a strong lager, and not really that tasty either. This one is no exception.
