COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blonde Bock
Bock beers are represented by a male goat, which in German lore symbolizes strength and virility. In accordance with the Reinheitsgebot (German Purity Law of 1516), bock beers must have a pre-fermentation malt sugar concentration of 16%, which converts over to at least 7% alcohol after fermentation. These strong beers were made popular in the early 1600’s by monks in order to minimize their hunger during fasting periods. While most bocks are dark, Blonde Bock is golden-colored and malty with a rich, creamy head. The rich flavor is counterbalanced with just the right level of bitterness from the Hallertau aroma hops and create a very smooth profile.

Bricks (606) - Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pours a light amber brown with very little head and some carbonation. Decent color. Aroma is simple and sweet, candied malt and not much else... maybe some grains and grass. Taste is a bit odd... I get quite a bit of malt and some funk... maybe a little bit of grass and hay. hops too. Smooth until the bitter end. Overall, it is not bad. Complex but off.

In bottle; pours a golden brown. Medium bodied; quite easy drinking for a 7% beer .. was hoping for a little more though (IE like a true German bock). So far out of the Biersch "sampler box", this has been my favorite,

Sammy (8726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
On tap at Hopmonk, Sebastol location. A decent serviceable blond. Slightly yeasty "dirty blonde" flavour which was fine on a 26 degree Fall day. A bit funky as a result, Significant retained head on light blond body. Carbonation above average.

Rodriguez (264) - Quito, ECUADOR - OCT 7, 2012
Draft, nothing remarkable, tasted like an industrial beer maybe wit a little more of body, almost no hop aroma at all, and some malty flavor

Bottle pour at Rocket City Brewfest. Rich amber color with a thick creamy head. Strong malty aroma and a strong malt taste. Slightly sweet but also a nice amount of bitterness. Very smooth - good beer.

Bottle, Sandy Lane, CA, 31/08/12. Bright gold with a slim white foam. Attractive honeyed shrub aroma; beeswax. Lean, meady honey notes bittered with clean grassiness, thistle, lemony hop and biscuit. Actually a pretty flawless lager.

julieimagery (182) - Coconut creek, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Very different, it has a strong plain ale flavor with a hint of malty bock. Not too much hops at all.

Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting ivory head. Aromass of bread, yeast, fruittiness, light carmel and a hint of graininess. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, fruittiness, light carmel and light graininess with a smooth lingering lightly bitter finish

Indra (2626) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 28, 2012
12oz. bottle. Malty, sweet aroma, some light pear and apple, bubblegum, toasted bread and honey notes. Clear medium golden in color with an uneven, lasting, fine, white head and visible carbonation. Flavor profile is similarly malty and sweet, with mild touches of spicy hop bitterness and flavor, more honey and light caramel, and a touch of white grape and pear fruitiness towards the finish. Manages to dry out to a large extent by the end. Active, almost prickly mouthfeel, with a medium body. Very clean version, if not the most flavorful I’ve had.
