Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a corn malt and honey. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt and caramel with crisp finish. Easy to drink a good Heller Bock from Pyramid. Drake (13649) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2012
Ze bottle ze ounces twelve! Slightly hazy brown with a thin frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of... well... not much. Faint grain and herbal notes. The taste is grassy hops, toasted malts, caramel. Medium bodied. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Draft. Ambsr beer with a low cream head. Malt and earth aroma with light honey. Malt and light honey flavor. Medium bodied. Malt and earth lingers with light grain. Ernest (7661) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off white, fully diminishing.
Body is light to medium amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, grain, husks, corn syrup), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of metal, butter, and DMS.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic, metallic.
Wow, "bock style ale", eh? So it’s not even an actual lager, ok, ok, I’m with you so far. The vegetable brine, tin, grain husks, and diacetyl make for quite the attractive nose, so far so good! The dirty, syrupy, metallic, husky mouth experience pretty much knocks it out of the park, we’ve got a home run right here. Nice going, Pyramid, you obviously burned the candle at both ends laboring over this one. Kudos. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Copper tinted orange, clear, thin to moderate white head, frothy, light lacing.   Mealy nose,
otherwise mild sweetened straw and hay.   Seems a little dank.   Sweet and smooth mealy hay/straw like flavors up
front.   Touch of salt in there too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit it feels a little heavier than others.
Fnishes quick, a little bit of that straw/hay lingers.   Tiz okay, but mealier and less bright than others.
But, it is Pyramid after all and not some Bavarian brewery.

After working in the yard I needed lawn mower beer and this hit the spot. Sorry no glass for this baby. I chugged it on the spot. It’s kind of like a Genny Bock. Terminus (3679) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 14, 2012
bottle-looks like they resurrected this one for a new spring seasonal-pours lite copper hue with a foamy slightly soapy white head that was pretty smooth. nose of sweet grains, carmel, and toasted notes. flavors of toasted gain husks, lite spice, mineral aspects, lite spicy hops but alot of carmel malt toasted notes which make this pretty pleasant, even though i didnt give it the highest rating. long sweet toasted notes finish with lingering lite bitterness. A decent offering from Pyramid dfinney23 (3250) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2012
Pours hazy amber with a dense, cream-colored head. Malty caramel aroma. Taste adds some spicy hop notes. Clean finish. Not bad at all. jb (3220) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Out of a variety pack from wegmans. Looks good, then disappoints. Especially with the nose, a key beloved part of a bock. The look is rich copper, off white head. Nose is grassy, a touch floral, all wrong. Palate is butterscotch, a bit of maltiness with a hops finish. Huh?
