Josephsbrau Heller Bock

This is a 7.0% golden bock beer from Trader Joe's. It appears to be a rebranding of their old Hofbrau Bock.

The beer pours a very deep, dark golden, nearing amber. There is a tall, thick head of white foam. The aroma is malty, sweet, yet grassy, grains and honey. The taste follows the aromas, lots of sweet malt, honey flavors, yet also straw and grass, finishing moderately bitter. It is easy drinking with a crisp finish. This is one of those hidden gems of Trader Joe brand beers.
