3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy amber with small white head. Aroma of caramel, bread crust, hay, grass with some fruitness. Taste is sweet at first, but then background fruitness and hop bitterness balance it. Medium-low carbonation. Nice, easy going, balanced beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite a simple one. Hay with straw, some grass, hops and even caramel. Drinkable, thick, warming. But not special in any way.

I expected something like an IPA and was little bit disappointed at first - but when seeing that it is supposed to be a Heller Bock everything went back to order and I was quite happy and satisfied. It pours out of the bottle in a deep amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops, citrus and straw. Taste of biscuits, butter, mild hops, malt, bread and flowers. Dry-bitter finish. Very easy and nice to drink with a high smoothness.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of malt, citrus, and grass. Sweetish, malty flavour, with bitter, hoppy and citric notes, and touches of grass. Lingering, bitter aftertaste. Nice.

Clear deep amber pour. Aroma is sweet malts and bit of grassy hops that's almost like apple juice. Taste is bitter up front then sweet honey malts with a slightly dry bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance with amber color, cloudy liquid medium head of foam.
Hoppy and sweet aroma.
In the mouth a strong sweetness is perceived, like ripe fruit.
Hops are also well inserted.
It’s a great beer!

Super malty, fairly sweet ale. Tastes good, refreshing. Texture is fairly chewy, smell is malty and not much else. Average.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a golden orange-brown color with a small white head that lasts several seconds and then disappears. There is some minimal lacing, slightly spotty and spreads out.
The smell has some caramel, malts and definite aromas of fruit with some slight hops in the background.
The taste has some sweet caramel notes with light fruit in the background.
On the palate, she sits about a medium, comes across fairly sessionable, but has a bland watery aftertaste and dry finish.
Overall, this is a decent tasting beer that I’m unsure if I would have again as it just seems just a tad weird on the palate.
