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.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2010
[Bottle] Pours a golden honey color with about an inch worth of dense white head. Aroma of cereal grains, honey and some light lemongrass and herbs. The taste includes lots of sweet honey, biscuits, grains, and grassy hops throughout. Well balanced, with nice prickly carbonation. Very smooth and refined for the style, with a creamy texture to it. This is an extremely well made beer.

emacgee (4403) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Pours a translucent yellow gold with a one finger white head. Nose is fruity and sweet with a bready malt foreground. Flavor is grassy with a caramelly malt backbone and notes of bread and a medium bitterness.

thegreenrooster (3561) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Pour is a bright golden with a large white head. Aroma is grainy with some sweetness. Flavor is malty sweet and heavy. This is ok but nothing great.

Terminus (3371) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 21, 2010
bottle-well, this was maybe a bit on the old side but i decided to give it a rating anyways. golden hue with a small fizzy white head. sweet malty lightly grassy and pale grains on the nose. the flavors are dominated by the pale grains, a touch of honey and oxidization. long grainy finish made this unpleasant. would like to try a fresh sample someday maybe!

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Courtesy of markwise. Pours clear gold with thin off white head. The aroma is sweet slickness, grains, floral hops and honey sweetness. The taste is smooth and sweet and lager-y and grainy. It also has a bit of maltiness and caramel malts in the background into the finish.

Bottle at tasting thanks to decaturstevo. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with small white head. Nose is honey and clove. Taste is honey and pilsneresque peppercorn.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle thanks to CanIHave4Beers. Pours light for a bock; dark golden with smallish white head. Simple flavors... light honey, delicate malts, and a little hoppier than expected. Simple and delicious, though not one of my favorites from this great brewery.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle shared by durhambeer at the CC gathering - thanks, Bob! Bright golden pour, moderate sediment and a crisp head to it. Soft and sweet nose, not much of a surprise, but also some pleasantly grassy hops blended in. These crisp hops enliven what might otherwise be a by-the-numbers sweetened bock, and is just the kind of thing that NG does to compel such styles. Solid and enjoyable.

joeneugs (4304) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 25, 2010
This could have easily been a sticky sweet mess, but not in the hands of Dan Carey! It pours a nice bright gold color with a small white fizzy head. The aroma is bready with lager yeast and a touch of honey. The flavor is very good with lots of bread, grapes, lager yeast and some nice honey on the palate. Well balanced and flavorful. Very nice palate, not sticky at all. Very smooth and drinkable. Good bready/grapey aftertaste.

Bottle from a trade with BA CosmoHopHead. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nose is honey, bread, sweet white grapes, and a bit of grain. Flavor is similar with honey, grain, and only very subtle hints of lager yeast. A masterful lager, one I could enjoy over and over.
