MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
My Bottom Line :
This perfectly authentic and deeply malty Heller Bock develops biscuity, honeyed depths in a crisp and highly drinkable vehicle.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slim veil of foam settles atop the amber-hued golden.
-The mouthfeel is fluffy, beautifully sharing the malts intricacies.
-Herbal hops balance out the honeyed malts.
-This ratings page is more of an indictment of the Heller Bock style than it is an appreciation of this spot-on example.

Clear, golden yellow with a thin white head and very bubbly appearance. Muted aroma of sweet biscuit malts and lemony-herbal hops as well as yeast and a little alcohol. Tastes the same with sweetness more apparent at the start, fading into a refreshing off-dry, herbal-bitter finish The body is medium with plenty of lively carbonation.

Beer appears a translucent reddish-gold colour with a creamy tan head that laces well. Aroma is grass, caramel, and fruity sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is sweet malt, grain, fruit and hops. I felt it was more of an Marzen/Oktoberfest in flavour than a bock, but still quite good.

600 ml bottle. Pours an almost clear pale golden with a resilient white head. Smell is floral, lemon and yeast. Taste is yeast, vanilla cake, sweetbread. Finish is quite bitter, very herbal and floral. Sharp, with a lot of character. Some weak tartness in there, too. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, also very slightly creamy, too. A superb pale lager ; to me, this had everything that is required to please the German lager fan.

Thanks to PaleAleRider for this one. Pours a slight hazy deep golden colour with a nice frothy warm head that is long lasting and creates thick foamy lace. Malty cereal grain nose with fruit and vinegar notes. Smooth medium-thick mouthfeel with some mild dryness and a bit of alcohol, but no burning. The taste reminds of me of malt liquor, but of much better quality. Good sweet malt in the finish all well-balanced with the hop, and hints of fruits. A pretty good, high quality, malt liquor.

Probably my favourite from the Oktoberfest 6. Pours an amber gold with a big frothy white top. Aroma is sweet candy, caramel, with biscuit and toffee malts. Drank a LOT of this.

Bottle, Oktoberfest 2012 mix pack, thanks Kristi! Pours golden dark yellow, nice bubbly white head. Looks great . Grassy, yeasty, lemon aroma, some alcohol. Taste - pretty interesting! Strong alcohol , lots of lemon. Like a strong lemony golden ale. Lively mouthfeel . Rather bitter as well up front. Good! This whole pack has been terrific!

bottle c/o "G" - yay G! Amber-tinged clear gold with a huge fluffy off-white lasting head. Floral and herbal slightly fruity malt aroma, not too sweet - bready. Taste - even more herbal, sharp green sour fruit character, alcohol emerges- spicy and I quite like it. light body, acidic/astringent, nice carbonation. Hoppier than most "bock" beers, which is a good thing, for me.

Bottle. Copper-gold with a very faint haze and a good sized white head. Aroma has a nice barley candy character - not as prominent as from a barley wine, but still noticeable - along with a balancing grassiness and a bit of orange oil. Flavour follows with sweet caramelized barley and candied orange up front, moving quickly into herbal dryness and a lingering bitter finish with orange rind and a slight boozy warmth. This bottle is more than a year old, but its held up well, and from what I can remember it doesnt seem a lot different from the much fresher bottle I had last year. Very enjoyable.
