CLear golden with little white head. Aroma is juicy malt, caramel, also lots of noble hops, slightly fruity and grassy, slight butter. Taste is juicy malt, not too sweet, a little bitterness and fresh sourness. Not too heavy, not much carbonation, easy to drink. Medium finish of the same with slight dust/corn. Nice one. One of the best Heller Bocks I ever had.
