Beer pours pale golden color with a nice fluffy egg white head that is retained. This beer is obviously not brewed to style. Aroma is hoppy and spicy. Taste is primarily sweet with some bitterness. Not an amazing beer, but I suppose a better Heller Bock.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear golden / copper with a white head. The aroma has thick caramel bock malt, earthy / spicy hops, white bread and smooth lager yeast. Medium / thick body with a modest amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with spicy / earthy / dirty hops, some of the aroma malt, but this is pretty hop heavy. The finish is maltier, but still fairly dry and hop forward. Nice bock.

Not bad but not something I’d drink a whole lot of. Though I usually like hoppy beers, this one is a little too grassy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with a white head. Aroma is rye and biscuit malt with some orange citrus notes. Flavor is similar. I get some light spice, as well as some grass and light citrus from the hops. The biscuit malt keeps the beer from being bitter, but is balanced enough so that it doesn’t make things too sweet. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz from "Lifesource" in Salem Oregon.
Pours a typical lager light golden with a large fluffy off white head.
Nice aromas..of biscuit,paper and grassy hop in the background.
Smooth taste..hoppy in a light grass way and smooth honeyish tones from the malts.
Nice lively but at the same time smooth mouthfeel.
Overall nice beer too hoppy for style but good
