4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Superb Heller Bock, probalby the best I’ve ever had. It’s just so rich and complex and at the same time refreshing. Notes of cookies, rye, orange and citrus. I can’t belive that this beer has 6,7%ABV. Give me another one please!

Taste is minimally sweet pale malty, a grainy touch, fruity hints of honeydew melon, a dry note of green apple parings. Nicely balanced, not too sweet.

500ml bottle - shared by mjs - thanks!
Bold gold. Slightly starchy and papery aroma. Pretty dull as a bock. Tastes more like an European Strong Lager, as it’s lacking the richness and graininess or nuttiness of a heller bock. Drinkability quite high, no sign of 6.7%. Pretty decent ESL.

(Bottle, 0.5 l, from Frizzz Getränke, 20130713) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grain, malts and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grain, grass, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was grassy, grainy and bitter. A very clean and tasty bock.

Flip top bottle. Pours a clear golden colored beer with a small and short white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with touches of caramel and honey. Flavor is quite sweet, did not expect that much of sweetness. Short finish, light carbonation... Not so good.

Bottled, nice work by mowbeer picking this up at pivni rozmanitost. Honeyed golden with a modest head; aroma of apple cider and some sweet vanilla; quite dry and classy for he style with a lingering grassy finish
