Bottle… Clear golden lager with a large, fragile, white head. Malty, nutty, biscuity bouquet. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. The flavor provides a good balance of toffee, biscuit and noble hops – mostly bittersweet. Finishes crisp and lightly bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml brown returnable bottle, no apparent best by date.
Pours a nice, rich gold. It is pretty clear with a very nice deepness and a foamy white head that fizzes away with little lacing.
Smells like... a bock, no where in the ingredients does it list wheat. It has a slight nutiness with noble hops and a doughy breadiness.
The taste follows, a robust lager, with more hops than the typical German lager. It has a nice roasty bread taste that lingers and lingers and a mild sweet malt flavor.
It is a decent bock, hard to find though.

Off orange color to it, other than that, a rather standard bock in terms of flavor, with the requisite slight sweetness to it and bready aroma and flavor. A good quality bock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a 0.5 litre bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear golden pale colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thin white ring and film top. Aroma of sweetened breakfast cereal, some light tropical fruit, and some candy gummy fruit. Taste is medium to full bodied, fruity flavors with golden grain malt, a hint of sweet butter, and macadamia nuts. Finish is quite sweet, thick texture with plenty of fruity malt aftertaste with just a light bitterness in the background. A solid Heller Bock throughout.
