Poured light amber, white head. Has some "stick" to it. Has some Christmas ale spiciness to it, pretty malty, very good for a spring lager. In fact better than most I’ve had. It’s NOT a light beer, though it appears like one. HBC if definetely the best large craft brewery in NC. SpringsLicker (3660) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Bottle Knoxville Brewer’s Jam.
Deep amber/orange body that supports a long lasting off-white head.
Light malt aroma. Toasty.
A light bitterness on the front end quickly fades to a velvety dryness.

Pours a nice amber color with a thin tan head. Good caramel malt aroma. Taste is smooth with a sweet malt, caramel, toasted malt taste. Easy drinking beer that went down way too fast. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 19, 2009

Orangey copper, decent sized white head. Faint aroma, maybe some grainy, toasty notes. Flavor is rye bread and a touch of a nutty flavor. Tasty and quaffable. At the Raleigh WBF. Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Thanks ucusty, bottle: Amber-orange pour. Aroma is caramelized malts and a bit biscuity. Flavor, not surprisingly, is lightly toasted caramel malts, medium-bodied, with a little bit of spicy hops lingering on the palate. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Pours a transparent copper orange with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of earthy, damp, slightly peaty malty notes with a touch of German lager yeast. Body starts fairly full and dark caramely malty sweet with a touch of toasty character and a mildly bready bittersweet finish. An interesting and pretty drinkable heller bock. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 12, 2008
This Heller Bock pours a medium amber color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel and sweet, touch of floral hops. A medium bodied Heller Bock. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and earthy. It seems a little hoppy for a heller. Good carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. TheBeerGod (6241) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Bottle. Copper pour. Small white ring of foam around the glass. Aroma is nutty, malty with earthy hops, light cocoa, and caramel. taste is spicy and earthy hops, nutty malts, caramel, light toffee, and some light grainy flavors. Body is medium but chewy with a strong carbonation bubbliness to it. More spicy and earthy hops throughout the finish. Lots of nutty malts, toasted malts, caramel, toffee and whole grains. Some dark bread as well. Not bad.
