In can (!) Light copper color. Clean, slightly sweet aroma with a hint of honey. Pretty good - a bit hoppy for a hellesbock, but good. Slight aftertaste of honey.
Can, bought from the brewery. Hazy golden color, small white head. Fruity flavor, very malty. Clean finish. Decent. DrinkinWell (389) - - OCT 9, 2013
Pours golden amber with light head. Sweet malts with honey and molasses flavors. Light citrus. Hops barely noticeable. Respectable beer. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - AUG 27, 2013
12oz can. Pours a deep golden orange color, with a dense white head that recedes quickly. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, honey and bread. Flavor is caramel, bready malts, honey and a kiss of earthy hops. Not overly sweet, and well balanced, little to no alcohol presence. Medium bodied, creamy, carbonation is moderate.

Location: 12 oz can from Buy Rite, 5/26/13
Aroma: The nose is sweet and malty, grainy and bready, a bit of fruit, and some grassy notes
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that leaves almost no lace
Flavor: The taste is grainy and malty, a bit sweet, and with a light grassy hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, though it feels fuller in this style, with a fizzy carbonation
Decent stuff. I didn’t love this one, but it is another solid canned beer that I could see working well in the correct circumstances for sure.
12oz can. Crystal clear apple juice body topped by small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, some hay, light honey. Taste is moderately sweet, bread, honey, some straw/grass, light alcohol. Light-medium body, light effervescence. BREWMUSKCLES (2671) - New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2013
nice can of beer with a real bock malt style character. interesting golden color and the honey comes thru in a good way with the citrus and pine hops. the mix a little caustic in the mouthfeel but full enough without being over the top, traditional enough and twisted good. Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
Can. Much like a full flavored domestic macro with some sweetness from the honey, which is a nice touch but can't save it. Another disappointment from Lancaster. jgb9348 (6191) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2013
Clear golden coloured body with a bit of a peach glow and a thinnish, one centimetre tall white head. Aroma of pale malt, lemons, metal and a hint of light grassiness. Medium-bodied; Assertive alcohol flavour with a pungent bite of earth, apricots and a lot of metallic notes with an offputting alcohol warmth. Aftertaste shows a bit too much body for the style and for any lighter beer, a lot of deep robust flavours that aren’t good (metal, alcohol, etc) and a deep finish. Overall, not such a great beer - and easily worth passing over - too strong and pungent for the style and in general. I sampled this 12 ounce can purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 02-April-2013 for US$1.49 sampled at home in Washington on 15-April-2013.
