Golden amber, thin head. Relatively light aroma - a little perfume if any. Rich malt builds well backed with a fair whack of earthy and tropical fruits hop bitterness. Nice beer and if from a name brewery would probably be rated quite differently.

Vincent68 (256) - Nitra, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 14, 2015
Fľaša 0,5 l z 1. nitrianskej pivotéky. Číra, karamelová farba, nižšia, hustá pena. Stredná rezkosť, výrazne horkastá chuť so sladovým pozadím. Horkosť zostáva dlho na jazyku, zaujímavý špeciál.

SlimHabib (281) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle pour. Clear golden with a large white foamy head. Aroma is apples and sweet malts. Oily light to medium body. Strong sweet taste that quickly turns to slight salty and somewhat bitter taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RexTalionis (2963) - 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 (171) - 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.

Bottle from Alko. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, toast, malts, wet cardboard and a bit of cooked vegetables. Bitter finish with citrus, cooked vegetables, malts and toast. Not good, the after taste is really bad.

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 !!
