OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2013
A - Light amber body, super clear. Two fingers of foamy white head. S - Grain, earthy husk, slight sourness, honey, old dough. T - Sweet grain at the start but quickly turns to an herbal, minty perfumey, earthy bitterness. Finishes with a tangy lemon sweetness. M - Medium to full body, creamy carbonation. There’s something off-putting in the flavors. Almost like a forced herbal mint. Didn’t come together very well. Serving type: bottle 10-29-2011

RexTalionis (2922) - FINLAND - APR 3, 2015
Bottle. Pale amber, whitish head. Sweet honey and old ripe apple sweetness in aroma. Mashed apple sweet notes in taste. Sweet, but the disturbing stingy and boozy notes aren’t present here, fortunately.

Rating refers to Primator Maibock. Pours light golden from bottle with solid white head. Malty aroma with citrus notes. Sweet, filling malty flavor that becomes very mild lingering bitterness. Alcohol has a presence but is not overwhelming. Full bodied with light carbonation. Delicious beer, fit for dessert, and exactly on the mark with the hops balance. My favorite pale lager to date.

Ascelja (148) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle 0,5l; deep gold body, medium white head. Malty aroma with hints of apples. Taste with medium bitterness, moderately light sweetness, malt, apples, grains. Heavy body, medium carbonation.
Nothing special, but not bad for a commercial lager.

corkyrory66 (801) - BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2014
Ma première heller bock, et ma fois ce n’est pas décevant… Bière de 7,5 % abv (à ne pas confondre avec les 16 affichés en grand sur l’étiquette !!! ooooh marketing de mon cœur!!), et malheureusement pasteurisée. Couleur vieil or brillant (du plus bel effet). Clarté nette. Bulles fines par vagues de centaines ensemble, avec des tourbillons. Superbe. Mousse blanc cassé bien crémeuse, très épaisse, avec des cratères en haut. Arômes de très beau malt grillé, lie de vin jeune, dattes jeunes, cassonade claire. 1ère bouche soyeuse à la belle prise maltée et épicée. Arrière-bouche encore plus jolie, avec quelques herbes. 2ème avec une entrée liquoreuse, puis du houblon pointu et du miel de tilleul. Arrière-bouche un peu poivrée. 3ème bien goûteuse, avec muscade et piment rouge. Arrière-bouche sur du malt grillé et un peu fumé. La longueur est belle, pas très dense, mais bien typée. Les jambes sont riches et denses. L’alcool joue un vrai rôle de soutien. La finale n’est pas en manque, avec quelques herbes et liqueurs de fruits. CONCLUSION : une vraie surprise agréable que cette bière et ce genre nommé heller bock, ou encore maibock, en espérant évidemment que celle-ci en soit une vraie représentante… Quoiqu’il en soit, et malgré la pasteurisation (qui est une très vilaine chose..) elle passe la rampe. Comme quoi, il ne faut jamais désespérer !!
