COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cool days draw us close to the warmth of home fires. This is the season to sip away the chill and embrace quiet evenings with friends and family. You hold a Wisconsin Style Honey Bock, easy going and more approachable than its traditional dark German cousin. Bock beers have existed in Wisconsin for over 150 years. This pale bock is brewed with an exclusive blend of Wisconsin two row barley that balances seamlessly with our special European hops. Naturally sweet Clover Honey was added in the kettle accenting warm flavor notes on your tongue. Whether you reminisce the passing summer sun or thrill to squeaky steps through drifting snow one thing is certain about winter in Wisconsin, this too shall pass.

"another via trade w pfoxyjohn...this is a good summer refresher that lets you know lighter fare does not have to be simple or boring. light and crisp, but with a little body and a lot of flavor. nice rich malt & hop balance with a kiss of honey in the finish. aroma is much of the same."

TH28 (121) - - JUN 21, 2014
12oz bottle. Appearance is clear pale golden with a small white foam cap that dissipated quickly. Aroma is a bit of bready and caramel malt with a noticeable sweet honey. Taste is rich caramel malt that leads into sweet honey. Hop bitterness is just enough to balance the sweet caramel and honey. Mouthfeel is medium with a low to medium carbonation. Finishes on the malty side with no lingering bitterness. Overall, this has the rich caramel character of a bock, but maybe lacking the hop punch of a true maibock.

GIJOE (647) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours amber with a thick, frothy, white head, continuous bubbles rising if various sizes. Blotchy lacing. Nose is typical lager yeast; a bit musty. Taste matches. More on the sweet side, but the hop comes through nicely. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Tasty brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (3094) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2014
12 ounce bottle poured into a New Glarus Pilsener glass. Pours perfectly translucent gold with a big, rocky white head of foam and lots of bubbles floating through the beer. The aroma has grains, lemon, pear, some bubblegum. The taste is sort of like candied ginger and lemon candy. A little bit bready as well. More sweet than anything else. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nicely balanced and easy drinking.

A pretty nice, easy drinking bock beer. The honey comes through on the palate nicely. Finishes slightly sweet.

Golden orange, clear, small white head. Sweet molasses nose, some grass. Little bit of citrus. Initial sweetness, some small amount of bitterness. Long finish, relatively effervescent, lighter body. Incredibly well balanced, fantastic beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dragonfly1 (494) - Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours a moderate yellow, with aromas of chamomile, lemon, and bread dough. Body is rich, with toffee, wheat cracker, and maybe a hint of honey. I prefer the darker blocks for that richness and malty backbone. This is good but closer to a blonde ale more than anything...

drdisque (530) - Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2014
From a bottle in a shaker. Pours bubbly pale amber. Flavor is sweet, wet, and very mild. Most flavor is of honey and sweet smooth grain. Very pleasant lager but a little lacking in depth.

12 oz bottle. Clear yellow brown with a whitish head. Nose is slightly sweet honey and grass. Crisp and clean medium body; a bit sticky. Taste is citrus honey, wheat toast and chestnut.
