COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Awarded the Silver Medal in 2003 in the Bock category, our deep-golden, medium-bodied lager gets its color, body, & sweet malt character from imported Vienna Malt. This beer has a crisper malt presence & more emphasis on hop flavor & aroma than our dark bock beer.

Dark golden with a small white head. Caramel, toasty grains, lemon peels, tangerine aroma. Diacetyl country: butterscotch is very heavy, rounded out by corn pollen and a light, crisp hoppiness. Finish is rather alcoholic.

ElGaucho (2208) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2005
I enjoyed this beer the most out of the 10 beer sampler I had. Euro-lagerish aroma, but faint. Light amber in color with a small, white ring of head and no visible carbonation. Not much lace either. After drinking 8 Moosejaw samples prior to this one, the Blonde Bock really provided a Wow! factor in the flavor department. Sweet and heavier in alcohol as a bock should be. Quite true to the style. The only knock I had was that it was a little cloying, but really a good effort overall.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Clear pale bronze in color with some white, thin splotches for the head. Aroma is distinguishable from the rest of this brewery’s line-up, accentuated with pine and residual hopping. Creamy palate hit. Chocolate and toffee kick things off. Vanilla extract and maple sweetness, along with some honey thrown into the mix. Christmas tree needles. Warming finish, and one of this brewery’s bests.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Copper, no head. The nose is faint hops taste is mellow, copperish and finishes quite malty. Did have a presence with alcohol that was in and out. Not bad overall.

PorterPounder (5556) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2005
On tap at the brewpub/restaurant in the Wisconsin Dells. Orangish pour with a decent sized white head that sticks around for a while. Sweet bock flavor - some molasses, cotton candy sugary sweetness and a touch of maple syrup. Nice bite to it without being too "alcoholy". Decent thick mouthfeel. Very good brewpub bock.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Sample at the brewpub. Clear medium amber, nice molasses nose. Full, strong sweet flavor, thick but not syrupy. Fresh and bready, with a bit of whiskey and vanilla late.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Dark golden aith a light of white head. Heavy malt and alcohol aroma. Malt dominate flavors. Not quite as crips as I like, but still quite good for style.
