Tap at Brewpub. Pale golden beer. Sweet honeyed nose. A bit of soft chewy pale malt. European, crackery character but the beer seems fairly underattenuated. It’s kind of sweet and bland and not all that good. Meh.

My Bottom Line:
Honeyed cereals and diplomatic herbal hops which extend into lightly citrusy tips form this well-cared for Heller Bock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the hazy blond.
-This is quite drinkable for its strength.
-The soft carbonation is not quite what I expected from the style, yet it works here.
-The flavor profile is the same as what the nose had suggested.

On tap at the brewpub.

(Draft at brewpub). Faint malty aroma. Light golden color, with a moderate sized white head. Flavor sweet and malty. Pleasant lasting finish. Nice.

On tap at the brewpub. To be honest I ordered this beer strictly based on the name - and I was not disappointed. Scores very well in appearance and flavor. Very nice malty, caramel taste. Only an average score for appearance because of a weak head. Overall a very good beer, and seemed pretty strong! Not sure of the ABV.

josarah (111) - Hinesburg, Vermont, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Darft at brewpub; minimal head, pleasant malty aroma, cloudy golden color. The malty did a great job concealing the higher ABV. I enjoyed this beer as I would the scent of hay in the autumn.

Fanciest head of the zero gravities, which disapears. Light peachy body. A sipper, sourish edge to it that is unexpected.

Verre de dégustation chez American Flatbread (Burlington, VT). Arôme: Odeur de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est cuivrée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est mince avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Présence d’épices en arrière goût. (Rating #586)

Half-pint draught at the brewpub. "Albee bock". Hehe. I get it. Does the cleverness extend to what’s in the glass? Well...it pours a slightly hazy gold, fairly thick and smooth looking with a touch of oiliness, thin remains of a head.....the nose is just immensely caramel-sweet, fresh and intoxicating, with hints of licorice and pepper and lovely earthy qualities....the body offers a big portion of noble hops, lovely grassy dryness mixing and balancing the thick, juicy caramelized malts, with nice hints of thyme and tarragon towards the finish....quite a pleasant easy-drinking bock, one of the better new beers from Flatbread in a while.
