A: The beer is clear dark yellow in color and has a lots of fine particulates floating in suspension along with a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of apples, corn, grainy malts, and herbal hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste generally follows the smell, except that the herbal hops seem to be a bit stronger and mask any traces of sweetness that one might have expected from the corn. The herbal flavors aren't overly strong, but linger into the finish, where they are most noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The suspended particulates don't make the mouthfeel seem to be "rough", but they definitely restrict it from feeling clean.
O: This beer has a good balance between the malts and hops, but both the aromas and flavors are quite muted.

Very malty beer in both aroma and taste (I think the label of heller bock is closer to the style than the pilsner listed here). Foamy white head on medium gold body. Dry , slightly chalky finish. Not bad, but don’t be expecting a pilsener.

Pours a murky golden-orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen suspended in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, honey, caramel, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, grain, caramel, and slight fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but nothing too special going on here.

Serving type: bottle.

(Served in a strange)

A- This beer pours a dark orange body with a strong carbonation and a thick rocky head of sticky white foam.

S- The slight note of sweetness leads to some toffee character with a lagered smoothness and a floral herbal hop note in the finish. As this beer opens there is a flint smell and some fresh sweet wort notes.

T- The nice honey malt sweetness has some pils malt flavor that finishes with a cider flavor and a bitter hop bite that grows in the finish.

M- The light mouthfeel has a gentle fizz with no alcohol heat noticed.

O- Nice rich malt that is sweet but has a lagered quality to it and bitterness of the hops helps cut that sweetness. As it warms the sweetness tends to be a bit too strong.
