Old rating. I’ve had many 6-packs of this over the years. An absolute American craft beer classic. One of my gateway beers that changed my palate. Nice yeast and malt aroma. Great malt-forward taste. As it warms up cinnamon and cardamom become slightly noticeable. Sweet on the palate and nose. A bit of bitterness on the way out that lingers.

Second beer on the BJs dinner pairing. This is a classic. Great malt backbone. Moderate hops.

Pours a frosted amber, good carbonation and no head. Rich malt aroma with decent hops balance. Complex and spicy taste with very good balance. Light bitter hops aftertaste with caramel follow-through. Slightly sticky mouthfeel.

The aroma is similar to barley wine, but the taste of soft, slightly sweet, enough beverages. Well fine of course, but 2 times would not take this.

Bela breja! Cor laranja acobreada, meio turva. No aroma, predomina o malte, com um sutil toque herbal. O sabor acompanha o que indicou o olfato, com uma bela dose de malte, seco, com corpo medio e final curto e um pouco amargo. Drinkability excelente

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Been almost 20 years since I had this. Was a very bold beer for the time.
Very sweet malty nose almost reminiscent of a candy apple. Body is both flat and fizz. Hazy deep holden brown amber. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz undated bottle served in a pint glass. A little sediment at bottom of bottle ... added mid-tasting (recommended).
Clear, then cloudy (see above) light amber color; 1+ finger of cream head after a light pour has good retention.
Aroma is mainly citrus hops and some floral and apricot elements.

I didn’t know what to expect, because I had bought the bottle blindly :) But I surely didn’t expect a Heller Bock. It’s my first Heller Bock actually and I quite liked it. Nice, sweet aroma and taste of the malts, some caramel, vigs, honey. Sweet, but very pleasant.

Pours a reddish copper colour. Head and lacing are not notable.
Aromas are a lovely mix of cherries, coconut, and malts.
The palate totally follows suit. The malts are quite sweet. A sweet vanilla biscuit lingers on the tongue after the swallow. This is good beer.
