2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark gold pour with little to no head. Abit of an alcohol flavor dominates on the first sip, followed by sweetness, and some citrus, not well balanced.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, thanks pivnizub. Amber, nice off-white foam, restrained carbonation. Honeyish sweet malt nose. Medium body, light ethanolic notes, some herbal light soapy counterplay. Might be this bottle, but I found it to be strangely unharmonic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear, amber colour with a fluffy, but non-persistent off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet, slightly fruity (lemon) malty aroma, minimal toasty with a light hoppy touch. Sweet flavour, malty, slightly toasted and fruity taste, medium bodied with a crispy carbonation on the palate; finishes malty, moderately bitter with a light metallic and herbal touch.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep-golden to light amber coloured, medium-sized off-white head, quickly diminishing to a small foamy layer; delicate sweet-malty nose with a tinge of vegetables and traces of hops; medium bodied, sweet flavour; sweet-bitter finish, ending with a very faint touch of a herbal hoppiness. A bit disappointing , but the hoppy touch in the very end saves this HELLER BOCK.....
