inbirraveritas (1394) - Budapest, - NOV 19, 2012
Bottled. 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.

pillenknick (3) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2015 does not count
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.

mariuszek (702) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 29, 2015
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.

gegwilson (2389) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2015
Bottle fromthe Dram Shop in Sheffield. Pours amber with a nice big frothy off white head. Grainy aroma. The taste is slghtyl sweet and spicy with bread, grain and nuts. Maybe a touch of aniseed. Not great.

reebtogi (5078) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
330ml swingtop bottle pours a clear golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with some cereal grains and a hint of caramel. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness with a hint of spice in the finish. Light to medium bodied with some nice carbonation. A decent brew that suits the style well.

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2015
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.

esp0r (2459) - NORWAY - JUN 10, 2015
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.
