500ml can - thanks Marduk!
Pale orange, brief head. Sweet aroma. tastes of disolved vanilla toffee. That’s it. Toffee water. Some maltiness too, but that’s a minor component. Simple, but actually I quite like it. Still not beery enough. Some alcohol later. Poor bock.

martjoobolut (2912) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 21, 2015
Swing-top bottle as "Doppel-Hirsch Heller Bock" (from SIP, Tallinn). Pours dark golden with white head. The small head stays for some moments. Aroma is very sweet, malt, potatoes, caramel. Flavor follows the nose. Finish is candy sweetness, somewhat watery with noticeable alcohol. Carbonation is rather hugh. Overall: it’s drinkable-ish.

jamaty (1814) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Dorada mínimamente velada y con un par de dedos de espuma. Aroma malteado y fruto seco. Muy ligera en boca al principio, suave, muy suave. Y dulce, bastante dulce. Evoluciona a un final mucho más áspero, amargo. Almendra y cereal. Y alcohol presente. Bastante. Curiosa.

Vells (1530) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - MAY 14, 2015
Some malty background, light caramel, some fruitiness, low on grassy hops. Light sweetness with light bitterness. Drinkable, but not worthy of price

You can barely sense any aroma, the taste is sweet with mild caramel. Body is OK, not completely plain

bonkiedeaap (621) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer is yellow to golden colored and pours a fast dissapearing head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty, with tones of grains, a little spring flowers and further a lot of sugar sweetness. The taste is malty and light sweet and has a little watery taste which also a little alcoholic.. Further it is very chemical. The finish is light bitter and very chemical. Not enough character this beer, I’ve tasted better Heller Bock’s.

Clear amber, medium white head. Caramel and light roastiness on nose. Medium body, light roasty sweetness. Finishes watery and metal-y. Nothing special.
