3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed from bottle at Blind Robin in Chicago, IL. Appearance is a cloudy gold with not much head. Aroma mostly malty with a light citrus hop presence. Taste is a brisk malt, bitter from hops, not bad, for Sierra Nevada and the style its good.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Short, almost no head. Pale golden color. Fruity aroma. The taste lacks malt for a bock. Much bitterness for a bock that lasts a long time. Mellow for a bock beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled 350ml. Clear pale golden with a white head. A huge amount of boletus showing up in the nose. Caramel throughout. Sweet. Earthy hops. Very metallic. Surprisingly alcoholic for a 6.4 ABV beer. Not at all my kind of heller bock.
