Pours golden with thin white head. Aroma is bread, basement, earthy. Taste follows aroma with sweet malts and sour, long bitter sweet finish Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2012
This poured a clear golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma was light corn, stale hops, and light grainy notes. Flavor was lightly flowery, some cereal, and some corn. Decent, but not great. beernbourbon (1604) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle thanks to beerman6686, thank you! Pour is crystal clear gold with a flurry of quickly dissipating white bubbles. Aroma is sweet cereal malt with faint hints of sweet candied fruit. Flavor is true to nose with sweet cereal malt and hints of orange peel being the most prevalent flavors. Also very slightly spicy with a touch of bready yeast in the finish. A bit sweet for me, but still nice on this cool October evening. Very true-to-style heller bock; malt forward with very little hop presence. obguthr (6827) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Sweet malt and bread crust aroma. Clear amber, thin head. Bready. Apple and new plastic finish. Balanced, but a bit chemical. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2012
This is by far the best non-german Heller Bock that i have had although it tastes just like them. Big malty taste with a little bit of honey and a clean finish. Amazing beer that i could drink all night.

12 ounce bottle from the brewery. Pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma of grainy malts with a bit of caramel. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, grain and a faint herbal hop finish. Medium bodied, well balanced and refreshing. Simple, but nice. jcos (1855) - Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2012

Appearance: Pours a brown clear.
Aroma: Aroma is of faint malt.
Taste: Light hop, caramel malt, a little bready
Summary: A solid example of the style. Nice, sweet, malty.
12 ounce thanks to Michelle. Nice looking beer. Honey. Grassy. Floral in taste and aroma. Refreshing. dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2012
From a six ack purchased at the brewery. Poured into a pint glass. Pours with about an inch of moderate head and creamy lacing. Nice golden color. Earthy aroma with bread. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and pretty much bock-like; just as in the description. Taste is clean and moderate. Again, a mix between a helles and a bock. Sweet bready taste with honey and Cheerios. Overall a decent beer but not great. I'm not a huge fan of bocks so that may be why. Although I do like Helles lagers.

Deep copper. Aroma is malty, bread, lightly sweet fruits, and a bit of honey. Flavor is similar with a high portion of bready malt. Easy going and quite drinkable.
