Der Antrunk ist überraschend hopfig, der Malz wird von der Würzigkeit und von den verschiedenen Hopfennoten verdrängt!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 6.5%. Clear golden colour, moderate white head. Slightly sweetish but pleasant aroma of light malts and floral and herbal hops, hints of honey and newmown grass. The flavour is slightly sweet, but not too much, distinctly malty, but also with distinct floral and herbal hops, and a bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Bready pils malts and delicate herbal hops coalesce in this crisp Heller Bock.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the translucent golden.
-Mouthfeel is rather lean for the style, which increases drinkability.
-The soft bubbling makes everything more comfortable too.
-Alcohol is a no-show in the flavour profile.
-This one is not all that memorable, but everything it does, it does very well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly darker than golden, visible carbonation and the slightest bit of haziness. Big and pretty dense head, good retention and lacing. Aroma shows cereal and white bread, slight honey, refreshing lemony and grass notes, flowery hints. Taste follows the aroma; starts moderately sweet with perfect balance between bready/cereal malts and grassy notes, finishes delicately bitter with a kiss of flowery hops. Body is quite on the light side for the 6.5%abv, moderate crispness, overall the beer feels gentle and slightly oily. Pretty fine and highly drinkable heller bock.
