Golden pour into pint glass. Aroma is very yeasty and bread. Flavor is very malty but doesn’t offer a lot of complexity. Some spice notes and vanilla in the finish. Diffentley on the sweeter side but it is nothing offensive.
Bottle in Seattle. Skunky sweet malt nose. Ugly sweet malt sip, plenty of sticky alcohol on body. Light astringent bitterness. Odd, not great. tnkw01 (1774) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2017
Bottle. Wonderful deep golden color with a deep orange hue and a two finger head. Aroma is bread, grains and malty sweet. Taste was sweet up front, grains in the middle with a tad of a bitter finish. deyholla (11900) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of straw and sweet grain with a bit of hay and corn underlying. Flavor is similar with a combination of sweet grains, straw and hay. Rumbero (87) - Miami, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2017
12 oz bottle from TJs.
Aroma: sweet grainy, bready malts with faint herbal noble hop aroma
Appearance: pours deep golden with a small 1/4" frothy head that quickly dissipates to half the original size. this beer is perfectly clear.
Taste: malt forward lager. so all sweet malts, assertive bitterness and pronounced alcohol presence
Palate: medium full body with rich creamy texture. crisp carbonation and restrained astringency
Finish is smooth and dry with lingering alcohol warming
Not my fave lager style but a decent rendition of the style.

12oz bottle 12/19/16 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-Pours a darker golden with a small white head. Aroma of sweetness, malt, caramel, and hops. Taste of the same with a bit of caramel on the back end. this medium bodied brew is not bad but just not my cup of tea. jimhilt (2614) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Pours a one finger light creme head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and light-medium bodied. Malty nose and flavor is malty with hints of caramel. $1.17 for a 12oz bottle from Trader Joe’s Nashua, NH. thepatrickman (1398) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2016
Bottle at home. Definitely one of the better Trader Joe’s own-brand beers that I’ve had. It’s a pretty down-the-middle, straightforward Heller Bock, with a great color, a medium body, a moderately-light hop bitterness, and some bite from the lager yeast. johnnymusky (983) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2016
