2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Community Food Co-op - N Forest St, Bellingham, WA
Darker shade of blond, clear, with medium sized compact head. The aroma is light, there is some fusel and plastic. Strong body, with round mouthfeel, but also a bit oily; there is a light fruity touch but also some chemicals; it’s fairly sweet, and the alcohol gives a quite boozy feeling.
Big Heller Bock. Weird, excessive, but not as terrible as expected; no need to try this again.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours light amber with a decent foamy off-white head. Aroma is rather sweetly grainy. Full bodied with foamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet malt with some light fruit. It’s not sticky, so it’s not unpleasant. There seems to be a little bitter. If finishes just mildly sweet. The heat is fairly well hidden. However, the alcohol level does seem to thin the flavors toward the end of a sip.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 ml bottle picked up at Jungle Jims and shared with some family (thank goodness). Pours a hazy golden with some orange color and a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have sweet grainy and corn malts, buttery toffee, some fruity character, lots of booze, this does get an over 10% tick but that is about it, not good.
