bottle at ekstrabladet julebryg event.
clear yellow, small white head.
aroma is malty, caramelly, slightly flowery, strong lager, nice. flavor is malty, slightly syruppy, flowery, good hoppy balance, sweet and bitter - a bit too sweet and thus a little cloying.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Vltave, Helsinki)
Over 6 fucking euros for a small one? What the fuck? Very nice aroma, grainy and dry, but with a slightly plasticky slightly almondy heller-bocky aspect too - nice. Rich amber, small tight keggy off-white head. Fairly full, but simple palate, slight stickiness, slight bitter dryness. Decent carbonation keeps it crisp. Fairly simple grainy taste, a little eco, but no grunge, just full grains, and some very pleasant dry bitter noble hops. Dry resin coats the mouth for the finish, doesn’t quite raise a tingle, but it’s close. Some more of the hellerbock hints in the finish, sweet and nutty. I often give hellerbocks more than this, this is clearly but i think I don’t like the kegginess. Pretty OK though.

Bottle (from Pivni Galerie): Golden coloured, smaller fluffy off-white head, slowly diminishing to a thin, stable foamy layer; sweet (pale-) malty nose with a tinge of honey and some hoppiness, traces of alcohol detectable; mainly sweet-malty flavour with a shy bitterness; longer, first sweetish finish, becoming dryer and aromatic-hoppy later. Well rounded, easily drinkable Special. Pleasant........

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep-golden; white-yellow head, receding. Bit oxydated nose, autumn leaves aroma. Sweet-bitter, vanilla, grassy & just a little roasted. Well balanced! My co-taster speaks of lactose. Again a bit metallic-hops, light to medium bodied. Especially the balance impresses me, as well as the hops quality.
