trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Uhh, not my bag baby. Poured clear gold with a frothy white head. Nice lacing. Sweet, perfume aroma laden with spun sugar, lemon, and malt. Sparkling mouthfeel, kept the feel light. Taste started off good, but got sickening towards the end of the glass. Lots of corn and crystal malt int he beginning, very nice. Light fruitiness, light sweetness that kept in check. Somehow, it seemed to build up in your mouth, though. Soon, the taste turned into a grape-candy and straw disaster. Its was like the Sam Adams Longshot Grape beer on steroids. The finish was long and sticky, and very unpleasant. If it remained constant in the beginning, I would have really liked this beer. But as it is, no way.

Not too exciting, a little plain, but not bad at all. Excellent for the price though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

60minuteman (1505) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle. Opaque amber. Unfiltered. Notes of malt, yeast, wheat, licorice and clove. Sticky alcohol with heavy clove and German yeast. Dry, quick finish. Not bad.

Idiosynkrasie (6981) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2017
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with small, frothy to creamy half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet-ish, malty aroma, hints of honey, carrot, a touch of lemon. Taste is slightly sweet malty, unspecific fruity, notes of carrot, honey, dry hints of starch. Controlled sweetness, rather expressionless overall.

PhillyBeer2112 (2778) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Im kinda surprised by the low scores here, but not really. This is a nice hellerbock. Good malty sweetness, full and balanced, nice toffee flavors, with a light hop spicing beneath. Mildly warming.

tomer (3296) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 28, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, smallish creamy head, cloudy deep orange color with yellowish hues, malty, nutty, vanila aroma, sweet malty and alcoholic. Not too exciting.

DSG (13693) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom Ls place. Thanks Stas. Clear golden. Aroma of malt, honey, caramel, a bit of alcohol. Sweet flavor, honey-ish, caramelly, alcoholic. Too sweet and boozy.

flying_pig (1495) - SCOTLAND - OCT 25, 2016
355ml bottle as a gift from Louisiana:
Quite a disappointing offering overall, the beer seemed quite ordinary & definitely wasnt what I was expecting, especially given it was the last of the American import beers I had to try from over the summer. There wasnt too much variety to the beer either, beyond the sweetness some pale malts & typical lager type flavours featured alongside an earthy middle & some toasted touches nearer the end; I cant say this is one Im likely to have again Im afraid.

Skinnyviking (9215) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2016
Sample at GABF 2016. Medium high white fluffy lasting head. Clear yellow golden body. Mild and weak malt straw slightly fruity aroma. Very sweet fruity honey flavor with a solid malt base. Alcohol can be spottet. Little hops bitterness, low carbonation, long sweet finish.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2016
- orange-gelbe Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Honig, Toffee, Brot, Malz, Banane, Kekse, Apfel und einer relativ starken Alkoholprsenz - zurckhaltende Carbonisierung - sofort im Antrunk vermischen sich die beschriebenen Aromen zu einem s- lichen Durcheinander - damit wird das Bier nicht unbedingt schlecht, aber leider fehlt dadurch vllig eine gewisse Vielschichtigkeit und Komplexitt - Mittelteil und Abgang verndern da nichts mehr daran Fazit: Trinkbarer Doppelbock, mehr aber nicht
