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.
