ordybill (1649) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Poured from a 16.9 OZ bottle into a pint glass Aroma-Malt, floral and citrus accents Appearance- A nice murky golden amber with a small white head Taste- A nice malt flavor with that hint of floral follow through. Palate- a full bodied beer with mild carbonation that ends dry Overall- this is an excellent beer with I would definitely drink it again This is a nicely balanced sooped up Helles bock. Alcohol adds some warmth, but barely dents the high drinkability.

Bottle pours hazy golden with a off white head. Aroma is of sweet bread and malts. Taste is much the same.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Golden, slight haze, moderate frothy white head, falls quickly, spotty lacing.   Soft bready nose, pale floral notes.   Soft sweet malty goodness, bready but not heavy.   Clean, smooth mouthfeel, decent body.   This one I enjoyed.   Unlike others it had a mild sweetness and it wasnt overly bready.   Thanks Bob!

Koelschtrinker (19464) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Hellmalziger, deutlich herber Antrunk. Erst im Mittelteil ist das Bier auch hopfig, die Herbe ist aber voluminser und toppt den Hopfen vorerst. Das lsst dieser sich aber nicht lange gefallen und holt dich die Krone im Abgang mit Hilfe der Bitterkeit zurck. Abgesehen von diesem stndigen Kampf ist eine grasige, spter auch se Note prsent, die das Bier noch aufpeppt und zu dem hellen Malz passt. Netter Doppelbock ohne Malzfixierung. 10/11/11/12/11/11

0,5 l bottle as a gift from the brewer, thanks! The BBd was expired.
Poured opalescent deep golden-amber with a small but delicious, foamy white head. Sweet caramel and fruits in the nose with some herbal hops, honey and raisins. Oily texture, fruity tastes on a caramel base, well hidden alcohol. Little bit tired beer, but fine.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Deeply bready malts float amongst heavy honeyed sweetness and alcohol warmth for an unrefined, somewhat lazy pint of Heller Bock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the hazy deep golden. There is a lot of yeast at the bottom of the bottle; beware!
-This is way too sweet to be drinkable.
-The mouthfeel appears lax with its flaccid sweetness and dispersed bubbles.
-Faint hops are tasted throughout, obviously overcome by sweetness, while still producing some wooden bitterness in the end.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy light orange color. The head was a few fingers high and white. It reduced over a few minutes to a thin lasting film. Smelled of hay, corn syrup, and cereal grain. Medium bodied with a somewhat slick mouth feel. Some sugars emerged, but were balanced by mild hop bitterness. I tasted grassy hop, distinct corn syrup, and toffee.
