Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was a soft semi-cloudy amber color with a cap of a little white head. Dissipated into oblivion. The aroma had some sweet biscuits, cereal and a light floral to grassy hoppiness. The flavor leaned to the sweet side through the malts. The hops try to balance a soft bitterness to it, but that stays fairly light. Mostly malty smooth aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Mild carbonation. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, nicely done hellerbock that I would have again.

Tap at Brewpub. Pale golden beer. Sweet honeyed nose. A bit of soft chewy pale malt. European, crackery character but the beer seems fairly underattenuated. It’s kind of sweet and bland and not all that good. Meh.

My Bottom Line:
Honeyed cereals and diplomatic herbal hops which extend into lightly citrusy tips form this well-cared for Heller Bock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the hazy blond.
-This is quite drinkable for its strength.
-The soft carbonation is not quite what I expected from the style, yet it works here.
-The flavor profile is the same as what the nose had suggested.

On tap at the brewpub.

(Draft at brewpub). Faint malty aroma. Light golden color, with a moderate sized white head. Flavor sweet and malty. Pleasant lasting finish. Nice.

On tap at the brewpub. To be honest I ordered this beer strictly based on the name - and I was not disappointed. Scores very well in appearance and flavor. Very nice malty, caramel taste. Only an average score for appearance because of a weak head. Overall a very good beer, and seemed pretty strong! Not sure of the ABV.

josarah (112) - Hinesburg, Vermont, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Darft at brewpub; minimal head, pleasant malty aroma, cloudy golden color. The malty did a great job concealing the higher ABV. I enjoyed this beer as I would the scent of hay in the autumn.

Fanciest head of the zero gravities, which disapears. Light peachy body. A sipper, sourish edge to it that is unexpected.

TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2006

Présence d’épices en arrière goût. (Rating #586)

Half-pint draught at the brewpub. "Albee bock". Hehe. I get it. Does the cleverness extend to what’s in the glass? Well...it pours a slightly hazy gold, fairly thick and smooth looking with a touch of oiliness, thin remains of a head.....the nose is just immensely caramel-sweet, fresh and intoxicating, with hints of licorice and pepper and lovely earthy qualities....the body offers a big portion of noble hops, lovely grassy dryness mixing and balancing the thick, juicy caramelized malts, with nice hints of thyme and tarragon towards the finish....quite a pleasant easy-drinking bock, one of the better new beers from Flatbread in a while.
