Pours a clear golden from the bottle with dissipating white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of pale malts and earthy crisp yeast. Taste follows, hint of bitterness, apple and dirt. Clean and full bodied, soft carbonation. Meh.

bhensonb (12308) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Tap at the SN tap room. Pours amber gold with a white head. Lite citrus aroma. Med + body. Flavor of light malt, tho not really bready, and citrus. Neither sweet nor dry. Mildly bitter. Rather refreshing and pretty drinkable.

rosenbergh (8418) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 30, 2015
12 oz bottle. Bottled on 03/12/15. (Sierra Nevada Brewing Co) Chico, CA.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Mild sweet malt and some hops in the aroma... mild aroma it is. The flavour is mild hops, some sweetness and mild maltiness. Very drinkable. Hoppy for a Heller Bock.

Draft at Taphouse. Medium brown color, off white head. Aroma of caramel, taste is like a dilute bock. Pretty average.

joeneugs (4115) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 25, 2014
Itís baaaack! Out of retirement baby! I always liked this beer and am glad they brought it back, even if it is in limited quantity. It pours a bright clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is bready with mild noble and citrus hops with a touch of fruit. The flavor has some lightly spicy hops, southern sweet bread, a hint of grape and grass with a decent earthy, spicy finish. Subdued, but a very pleasant drinker.

Just like we remember it...crisp, yet full-bodied with a great floral aroma...

Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2010
This is a great pale bock that I enjoyed during a trip to Chico. Great flavor with a fruity finish. Overall, this one is worth the search for and I recommend it to all

Nickls (1956) - Kingstowne, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2010
(OId BA rate - tap) Light golden hue, with sticky/frothy white head. Great lacing all the way through sample. A bit of fruit in the aroma, some graininess, and finally a bit of malt. Hints at some hop inclusion. Taste has pretty delicate flavors. Malty and a bit earthy. Hoppy dryness in the end. MF isSmooth and a little creamy for the style .Very drinkable, with nice but not overpowering flavors. Pretty balanced, but nothing extraordinary. Overall, decent
