Can in Seattle. Cloudy orange appearance, interesting. Developed palate, nice golden bock character. Bread crust, ester, creamy sipmbut sharper nose. Fair alcohol presence, drying and sharp. Nice. Jabic (661) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 3, 2017
500ml can. Ar: Toasted malt and light honey; a bit of sulfur; minerality and lean, dried noble hops. Ap: Golden and hazy; medium white head with moderate-good retention, leaving a solid cap of suds and a chunky lacing pattern along the glass sides as it recedes. T: Sweet, lightly toasted malt; honey, grass, and hay; bitterness is medium-low; fresh noble hop character at a medium-low intensity; a bit chalky; slight black pepper; clean, tingly alcohol on the finish, with lingering sulfur and grassy, rosy hops. P: Medium-full body with medium carbonation; very smooth, almost silky; finish is medium. O: This is a really nice heller bock; firm toasted malt backbone, but the malt character never becomes heavy or overly assertive; tasty hop flavor, with some nice complexity coming from the combination of minerality, alcohol, and hay; warming and substantial, with a great mouthfeel. jfb (6574) - GERMANY - AUG 29, 2017
(bottle) murky bright golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of pale malts and floral hops, with a light touch of peppermint and some treebark. flavour is mostly cherry juice and herbal hops, with a hint of sugar icing, some buttered baguette and a light-bitter ethanolic finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation. tnkw01 (1788) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle. Golden in color with a three finger head. Aroma is grains, with a tad of too much skunk. Taste well balance but again a touch of skunk. Just ok. drpimento (3733) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2017
For being an unfiltered beer this is quite clear. Aroma has some pungent bitterness to it. Flavor’s a little more malty and smooth. Ok beer.

Bottle. Blonde, hazy. Malty buttery floral aroma. Malty sweet, doughy, floral flavor. Low on carbon. Cake and butter in the finish. Pleasant enough, but not a prize winner. Camons (13017) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2017

Aroma is malts/pale malts and German lager yeast. The flavor is pale malts, mild fruit, German yeast and a smooth/slightly tart finish. Ernest (7790) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Can (BB Oct 2017). Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, husks), trace hops (herbs), with a note of metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Not much going on in the nose, and there’s some huskiness and metal to spoil the malt. Decent flavor balance for the style, but again brought down by raspy straw-like huskiness. Meh.
