VA Homebrewer's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2001
The first things I noticed about this beer were its exceptional clarity and bronze color. As I raised the glass to take the first sip, the overwhelmingly malty aroma struck me. This beer has good mouthfeel and roasted malt taste. I did not notice any prominent hoppiness in the aroma or finish. Perhaps it was overpowered by the malt (or my dinner)? Drank it after a hefe and during a meal of brauenwurst & kraut, so I might need to try it again on its own.

Russmeister (5) - Jackson, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2017 does not count
This is a fantastic heller bock. If you do not care for it, perhaps you are not a fan of the style. May I suggest you go back to your regular over hopped beer, and rate IPA beers which are more in your wheelhouse. This is not a happy beer, nor is it supposed to be.

On Tap at Prost! Clear deep golden. Full smooth fluffy white head. Light toasted maltiness. Smooth German lager but a littel more body. Very nice.

bartlebier (3819) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 4, 2017
33cl Granate bb11/2017. - Deep barley yellow. Sweeitish barleysugar metallics in aroma with a surprisingly present fume nose - ,maybe some powder vanilla in the pwder sugar, with some goodwill ; taste is fully barley sugars, stopping short of becoming more engaging honey pops - and again that macro-metallic tinge, with again some alcohol fumes. Grasses, barley, minimal charm coming in retronasal when its too late. Annoying oily mouthfeel that my palate is sensitive to. - - Theres a buried supermarket lemonade in there as well, and it does alloy with a certain hoppiness...but you do not want to let it warm to find out how (Turkish Sprite Hallertau Nettle Ed.). - Why is this still well-regarded as a seasonal?

(Flasche) Es hat eine orangene Farbe mit einem starken kupfernen Einstich. Es ist klar filtriert mit einer kurzweiligen weien Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist leicht, Karamell, etwas dunkle Frchte und Alkohol. Es gibt eine geringe Assoziation mit Rumtopf. Der Geschmack ist noch leichter als das Aroma, slich metallisch, das wars.

Foxbush (1968) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Edmunds Oast Guest beer The Heller Bock poured a clear amber color with an off-white head and lacing. This is an attractive bock. There was some light sweet caramel malt on the nose. The taste is malty. The bock has a medium body with average carbonation. Nice clean finish.

Grumpelmies (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle. Reddish golden. Not a lot of head. Smell: sweet malt. Taste: sweet malt, toffee and a dash of honey. Some hops provide a nice bitterness in the background. Good carbonation. Finish is quite long and warming. You can tell there is some alcohol in there...Nice. Could drink this all night long but that would soon get dangerous...
