4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewpub in Wisconsin Dells, pours a coppery brown brew with an average off-white head that dissolves to a fine lacing. Aroma of caramel, maple syrup, vanilla, and a touch of cotton candy. Taste is full body, lightly carbonated, sweet and a honey sweet aftertaste. Finish is smooth and creamy. Probably the best of all 10 sampled at the brewpub which rendered a growler order. Well done Jamie!

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.

From Skyview’s growler. One of the better bocks I have had anywhere. Tons of vanilla in the aroma, and sweet malt is a secondary though. A light orange, cloudy appearance. Flavor has caramel, sweet malt, and more vanilla. Thick and heavy on the palate.

Pours a golden amber color with average head. Had a little bit of a malt scent but not too much. Had a really good taste as the malts were nicely mixed together for a smooth, clean finish making this beer rather tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the brewpub. Arrived a crystal clear golden amber with a moderate white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left substantial lace. Mild aroma of bread and a touch of honey. The flavor is malt with some mild honey sweetness. Mild bitterness at the finish.

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.
