3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, BB march 2014, large sample. Clear golden color, medium white head. Aroma of hay, grainy malts, bit sweet, slight caramel note, bit grassy hop, hint of sulphur. Bit sweet in taste, medium bitterness. Quite typical german heller bock. At first, I usually don’t really like the aroma, but these german brews really grow on me. Getting better as I get through the bottle actually. Quite ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Hazy gold with a few floaters and a thin lasting white head. Bready cereally aroma. Yes typically bocky but not overly sweet certainly a big whack of cereal flavour. And a little sickly. It’s ok. Golden syrupy quite dry some sweetness. Some hop on end. It’s pretty good. A bit of potato crisp. Yes, weird but interesting and bocky but dry and pretty good. Especially the plain crisps flavour. Odd.
