COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein starkes, helles, untergäriges Bier. Es ist weder süß noch wuchtig, sondern herb und frisch – wie das Allgäu im Frühjahr!

Decent beer. Interesting grassy nose gave me the impression that this beer would be lighter in the tongue than it was. Nice golden hue with good-lasting head. Taste is mellow if a bit syruped. After taste is sweet but still palatable. Good beer, just probably not repeated.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle, pours a golden body with a short lived white head. Fruity citrus and punch aromas. Light grain and sweet hop tones a bit sweet perfume with a hint of berries. A light body thin and soft. okay.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2010 Bottle: Pours a clear gold color with a light white head and lacing. Nose of sweet toasty malts, honey and crispy noble hops. The flavor has a sweet impact and a bit too much green apple and lager notes in the flavor. The finish is brief and a little tainted by the taste. The nose is good though.

Wow. I was not too impressed with this brewery’s Hell, but this Heller Bock is tremendous. I love the style, but there are so many bad examples of it (usually American brews that come out too hot). This one is an archetype. It is not unlike Einbecker’s wonderful Maibock, but I think the latter might have some more complex malt. Nevertheless, this beer would be an absolutely perfect beer to pour for someone who wants to know what Heller Bock tastes like.

zeke626 (422) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle, pours a hazy, greenish-yellow body with white head. Musty aroma of bread, yeast with a light citrus and apricot. Flavor is similar with more maltiness and a little spice. Light to medium body and lightly carbonated. Finishes clean except for a slight lactose flavor in the aftertaste.

Drake (8458) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
500 mL bottle from Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Fruity aroma along with notes of corn, apple and toasted malts. Taste is toasted malts, green apple, caramel and some grassy hops. Smooth, medium bodied.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Clear golden topped by a pillowy white head. Now that was an original statement. Doughy aroma. Light sweetness. Fairly nice balance but not nearly goaty enough. Seriously, though. Kind of ho-hum middle of the road.

scottw86 (1094) - Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Poured a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma almost identical to apple juice. Taste is creamy with some pale malts and not too much else. Slightly skunky flavor. Aftertaste is not too great, leaves a weird creamy taste behind.

Bottle. Pours gold with a 3 finger white clingy head. Aroma of cooked caramel. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is light caramel with light noble hop. Except the flavors are quite strong. It’s a bit more sweet than dry. Maybe it’s just bready. Really good tasting beer.
