Bookseeb (116) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Appearance is a light golden color supporting a healthy head that sticks around awhile leaving fair lace. Smell has a nice floral fresh hoppy aroma with malt in the back. Taste has that upfront hop flavor without being overpowering balanced with a nice malt flavor. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A nice hoppy twist on a Bock.

bubbleflubber (1826) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Pours a clear yellow-gold into the glass, with a nice soapy head that retains well, leaving sudsy lacing. The nose is of lemon, cereal and grains. Flavors are similar, with lemons, Apple Jacks Cereal, some grassy notes, a candied citrus, and a nice extended bitter to balance and finish the pull. With a fresh mouthfeel, this one goes down smooth with a medium-light body, soft carbonation and almost juice-like texture. Really nice.

Tap. Gold pour with white head. Smells malty. Tastes of sweet malt with a slight bitter hop finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2013
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.

vyvvy (3978) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2013
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.
