JosephsBrau Heller Bock is a fine example of the regal brewing tradition still found in Germany today. This outstanding bock is golden in color, very rich,and moderately hopped. It is brewed with three types of imported malt, Hallertau aroma hops and lager yeast.

Golden pour into pint glass. Aroma is very yeasty and bread. Flavor is very malty but doesn’t offer a lot of complexity. Some spice notes and vanilla in the finish. Diffentley on the sweeter side but it is nothing offensive.

Really off putting. No aroma and a pretty repulsive taste. The best thing I can say about it was that it was free.

ttoadee (969) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Burnished gold pour, white head. Nose is malt and a hint of alcohol. Bittersweet. Bitterness from the alcohol cuts into the malt sweetness. Body is sticky and thick on the tongue. Finish is malt and alcohol rolling around; malt seems to have the upper hand by a hair.

BelgianBeerGal (3384) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle from Tallahassee TJs. Clear caramel color with a white head that disappears quickly. Light caramel aroma with some grassiness. Nice flavor and fairly true to form but maybe a little overly boozey and heavy. Fine.

notalush (5351) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2015
Dark gold pour - nose is clean honeyed maltiness - light grassiness, white grape - fairly creamy texture - fairly good balance between clean malt sweetness, light floral notes, and hop grassiness - it’s nothing terribly complex, but for the price point it is a decent Maibock.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small white head. A sweet fruity nose. Caramel, toffee, vegetable sweetness, hmm. Decent drinkable beer. Comes in very sweet but mostly mellow. OK.

slowrunner77 (7083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Meh. Light bodied and a little too carbonated. Grassy hops and bready malt. Just too light and prickly.

mjg74 (2824) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle from TJ’s. Medium golden/amber in color. Sweet malty nose with a bit of graininess. Sweet malts dominate. Some graininess like a cheap lager. Decent thickness on the mouthfeel. Sippable bock.

chinchill (2988) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2015
12 oz bottle stamped best consumed before: 3/7/15. Pours clear amber with a modest off-white head that soon settles to a ring and partial film on top of the beer. Smell: has a strange, unappealing moldly-flowery aspect. Taste: some of the off-aroma carries over the flavor, but it is better than the smell suggests and carries some toast, caramel, and mild bitterness. Feel: Medium-low level of carbonation; too hot for 7% ABV. Overall: disappointing.

A light copper with a thin white head and no lacing. Very malty and a bit sweet. Grassy and grainy with a crisp finish. Nicely balanced.
