This one’s for the beer geek in all of us. The Gold Stock is a cult classic that’s offered up only one or two times a year. If you catch the rare sighting of this “draft only” beer, rejoice. What we did first when we made this was we brewed a full-bodied, golden ale. Then we went absolutely nuts with the pricey German hops. This smooth but biting beer is our own individual take on the pleasant India Pale Ale. It’s one of those beers you have to try. Look for it and order two!

Bov (10914) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 22, 2000
honey colour, big creamy head, fresh, lemon and nutty aroma, nice acidity, some astringence, very dry aftertaste - don’t shoot at me but this beer as some analogies with the great Orval.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 29, 2006
A pretty good offering from these brewers. Pours coppery. Smells of citrussy and piney hops with a nice malt base. Taste is of citrus, pine, some sage and a tangy malty finish. Mouthfeel is peppery and tingly on this one. Worth a try if one ever finds it on draught.

Big thanks to woosterbill for this one. Reviewed from notes. Pours a nice, deep golden color with a good white head. Nose brings some really strong earthy, herbal, and lightly-citric hops. Really, really nice. Taste is along the same lines with a bit of earthy and floral characteristics plus a good deal of pine and some slight citrus. This is a cacophony of hops without any one type really dominating. Slight bready notes. Great bitterness levels and a bit dry. I was not at all impressed with Sea Hag, but this showed me that when they try, NEBC can really bring the hop attack. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 10-29-2010

Rich and biscuity, toasty, rich grassy and herbal hops. Fantastic malt flavors and overly hopped
