Bottle brought home from October trip to Franconia. Wonder blond bock.
Super clean lager with very nice malt undertones and long lagering. Crisp with just enough alcohol to let you know you’re drinking a bock. Inspired effort from good out of the way brewery.

500 mml Bottle tasted on 23/06/2014. Clear golden with medium white persistent head. Moderate malty aroma with some caramel and grains. Taste of sweet malts and hops. Taste is balanced. Carbonation is medium and body is light/medium. Easy to drink, not enough rock and roll. Next one please!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty - lightly grainy and sweetish aroma, some caramel, light fruitiness and faint butter, light alcohol. Medium, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish flavor, light caramel and faint fruitiness with light alcohol. Finish is average, malty - grainy and sweetish, light caramel and faint butter with faint hoppyness, light alcohol. Sweetish bock with caramel - nothing special. Couls use some bitterness to balance the caramel sweetness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of sweet malts, straw, slight caramel. Flavour is sweet malts, a nasty sweetness. Rather typical and boring overly sweet Heler Bock.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sample at PRNH meibock festival. Clear gold pour with white head. Aroma of musty old grain, butter, dusty and vegetal notes, honey comes out as it warms, not a super inviting aroma. Taste is better, grainy, honey malt notes yet not too sweet. Palate is slick, med bodied with light carbonation. Meh.

Wieder ein ungewöhnlicher Bock. Das bockige ist weit weg hier und das ist gut so. Recht süffig, etwas Malz, leichte Bitterkeit - kann man noch mal trinken.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
100th Bavarian beer review. From a half litre flip top bottle, impressed by the healthy "plop" sound. A: Pale Gold, clear, medium head, decent lacing. S: The freshly opened bottle had that really nice nutty aroma that often accompanies Bavarian beers, sadly it didn’t transfer to when the beer was poured into a glass, slight hoppy aroma came through towards the end. T: Nice balance of mildly sweet grassiness, balanced out by bready bitter finish. Noted hints of clove, apple, banana and booze. Well carbonated, medium to thick texture. O: Fairly decent, I would place this on the Maerzen/Bock border.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours out of the bottle in a clear deep golden colour with low head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of intense hops, barley, citrus, flowers and grass. Dry-bitter finsih. Nice one, not as dull as some other Bocks.
