3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper brown in the glass, the beer starts malty and slightly sweet. Highly drinkable. The mainpart is nice malty-sweet with hints of bitterness without beeing to sweet-sticky. Dark fruit, a bit viscous and still highly drinkable. Not really a Heller Bock - the taste is more like a Dunkler Bock. The aftertaste is long, smooth, malty-crisp and dry with hints of sweetness, molasses, plums. Nice!
A very nice and good Bockbier! --> 13/12/13/13

First spring beer of the (way before) season! Itís 35 in Houston today for heavenís sake, drinking a spring beer just seems wrong. Anyway, I thought this was a pretty flavorful example of the style. It isnít an amazing beer, but it isnít half bad either.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful copper color with an off white, fairly quickly receding head. Nose is light caramel, light toffee, light leather. Flavor is toffee, caramel, toast, with a somewhat biscuity finish. On the sweeter side, could be a tad dryer. Pleasant carbonation.
