3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,5 l bottle, Bought at Hof Luckmann, Bissendorf, Germany. If you ever be in the Osnabrück or Bielefeld area, visit them! Orange golden in the glass, little bit unclear. Big white foamy head. Looks good. Hop on the nose. Maybe with a little bit alcoholic elements and hints of burnt plastic. Taste has a balance between alcoholic bitterness, hop and a malty background. Increasing alcoholic sharpness. Later more floral hop influences. Strong and complex Heller Bock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl. bottle. Orange-amber body has some very fine particles creating a foggy haze. An island of meringue and ring of creamy foam sit on top. Nose is pine resin, light citrus zest and lemon toffee. Taste is tamer resin, honey and mildly sourish citrus toffee. Some toasted bread and dry grassy notes on the finish. Medium body has medium carbonation and no hint of the larger abv. Finish leans dry. Kind of a style buster and it’s a tastier brew than most I’ve had in the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is mostly malt. Some bitter in the flavor, but I cant really place it as hop bitter. Body is good tho it has some alcohol warmth. Decent drinking beer.

500ml bottle (HBF2015, Helsinki)
Nice malty aroma. Nice malty body too. Fairly textbook simple bock, not grabbing me as much as I like to be grabbed by a bock. Where’s the almond? Alcohol kinda covered, I can round up my score for that.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled@HBF2015. Yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is floral, fruity, hrbal and quite grainy and malty. Flavour is quite similar, and the mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side of things. Nice herbal and bready aftertaste though.
