Shared a six pack with Wayne in Thomson. Great initial taste and very smooth. A "unique" aftertaste. Can't quite place it. Would be better on tap I think.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
355ml bottle at home , poured into a glass tankard, ABV 6.5%
Dark orange colour on the body, slighty hazy, with a small but quite thick white head, with quite good retention, leaving light lacing around the glass. The appearance only is much better than any heller bock I had till now.
Aroma has olenty of hops, caramel, sweet malts, tropical fruits.
Taste is very hoppy and bitter too, with the bitterness multiplying on its way to the aftertaste. Again tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, little caramel.
Medium body, average carbonation, very dry palate.
Great beer, definitey the best heller bock I had.

Appearance is golden with an orange hue and cloudy with a white foam cap that dissipated quickly. Aroma is caramel malt and honey with a distinct floral hop/yeast quality. Taste is rich caramel malt with residual sweetness and honey, with a well balanced hop bite and fruity yeast character. Almost has a slight tea character. Mouthfeel is medium with a medium-high carbonation. Finishes crisp and dry with a lingering caramel malt
