Percy0103 (761) - MEXICO - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. A dark orange beer with a head that fades away almost immediatly. It has a medium aroma and Ive been told this is how a bock is supposed to smell. Taste is bitter and it has a medium alcohol finish. Maybe at the end is also a little bit watery.

Bottle - Brownish pour. Nose of malt, lager yeast, and a small hint of brown sugar. Taste has that nice malty presence with the crisp lager finish. Good representative of the style in that its not over the top and an easy drinker.

beechner224 (1024) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark amber, small white head. Aroma of yeasty, small malt, maybe even corn. Taste is malty, sweet, better than the aroma. Maybe even a tad of smoke. ok.

weihenweizen (3486) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, from BMart, poured into a snifter. Pours clear copper with small off-white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is caramel malt, medium body, low carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is caramel malt with balancing hops. Easy to drink for a bock, pretty dark for a heller.

Pershing (548) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Clear copper with a quickly dissolving head. Minimal amount of visual carbonation. Moderate malt aroma. Medium body with an excellent hop malt balance. Nice lingering finish of wanting more. An excellent Bock.

Erzengel (8293) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2014
Copper brown in the glass, the beer starts malty and slightly sweet. Highly drinkable. The mainpart is nice malty-sweet with hints of bitterness without beeing to sweet-sticky. Dark fruit, a bit viscous and still highly drinkable. Not really a Heller Bock - the taste is more like a Dunkler Bock. The aftertaste is long, smooth, malty-crisp and dry with hints of sweetness, molasses, plums. Nice!
A very nice and good Bockbier! --> 13/12/13/13

ben4321 (6100) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Location: Draft at Ginger Man - Houston, 2/11/14

Aroma: The aroma is toffee, caramel, and bread, with a little bit of a floral/grassy hop
Appearance: This one pours a clear amber-orange, with a frothy beige head and good lace
Flavor: The taste is rich and malty with a light hop backbone to it
Palate: The body is medium, with average carbonation, and a light dry finish
Overall Impression: First spring beer of the (way before) season! Its 35 in Houston today for heavens sake, drinking a spring beer just seems wrong. Anyway, I thought this was a pretty flavorful example of the style. It isnt an amazing beer, but it isnt half bad either.
