2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear amber and lively carbonated body with a creamy off-white head on its top.
Easy malty nose and aroma escorted by caramel, sugar and mild grassy hops and alcohol in the background, mouthfeel’s slick.
It finishes rather short and malty with gentle alcohol and some hops.
An easy brew without any surprises.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice Winterbock, but with a surprisingly golden colour. Slightly sparkling, hardly bitter in taste. Qualifies for the label “yummy”, but it is too discreet to give a reason why it is yummy. Quite drinkable, but not very exciting.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, dark golden, medium white head. Faint malty aroma with shades of grassy hops and dried fruits. Taste is caramel sweet, fruity, herbal with a bit of bitterness on finish. Some mead-like alcohol warmth in aftertaste. Really not bad.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
