3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The beer poured a little cloudy with a nice white head. The smell is faint and of corn. A little sour and astringy. I might have gotten a bad bottle.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hay, raisin, and dates on the nose. Shimmering amber, headless. Medium bodied and dry. Creamy malt. Little carbonation. Alcohol is evident but blends well. Parsley finish. It has some nice qualities, but is fairly mediocre.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden-straw into the glass, with frothy white head that leaves thick sheet lace. The nose on this is of bananas, bread and silage grains. The flavors are upfront banana bread, mid-palate "mealy" yeast, and a touch of alcohol burn on the sides of the tongue. The finish is a yeasty banana aftermath, dried a bit with spices. A slick, chewy (but not necessarily "thick") mouthfeel, this heller bock is a decent offering, albeit a tad heavy and unilateral.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of citrus, hay, malt, bread, and a bit of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of bread, alcohol, malt - almost chewy, and hay from the hops, leading to a bitter finish where the notes of alcohol and hay lingers. The alcohol tickles the palate.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
immediate aroma of cereal, fruit, and egg - I didn’t care for it; primarily a cloudy straw body having quickly acquired a frothy white ring to leave only minimal scattered lacing; nice and calm flavor - somewhat citrusy with vegetable notes; creamy yet somewhat fizzy palate that eventually feels oily; decent brew in the end.
