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.

Suttree (5186) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2010
Cloudy orange, thin white head. Smells beery. You know what I mean - it smells like beer. Flavor is surprisingly crisp, with a touch of honey. Some caramel and toast, as well. Not bad, crisp and easy to drink. Thanks to lithy for this one!

deyholla (6713) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet with a strong honey note and a caramel note. Flavor is quite sweet as well with honey, cereal and caramel notes. Surprisingly thick on the tongue.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2010
Clear golden amber with a thin white head with some foamy lacing. Aroma of honey, corn flakes, light toffee, toasted malt and stale socks. Taste of mild honey, grains, toasted malt, light fruit and more corn. Pass.

beerbill (3454) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 2, 2010
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with Ughsmash. Pours a clear gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left bits of lace. Mild aroma of malt with a few notes of grassy hops in the nose as well. The flavor is malt with just a bit of honey sweetness and some very mild grassy hops at the finish. Very easy going down. This is a nice enjoyable bock beer.

weitz15 (382) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Yellow pour, with a frothy white head. This one has a smooth macro-brew type of body, with a slightly sweet finish. Along with the finish come a flat texture, which really hurts the score for this one.

Block (1432) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Much lighter than I expected for a bock. Not bad but I was definitely expecting more. Couldn’t taste much honey. Seemed pretty regular.

phaleslu (6607) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear gold color with a finger-thick white head and visible carbonation. Aroma of sweet malts, honey, straw, grains, and the faintest of hops. Flavor is also big on honey and sweet malts, with some grains and hops, sugar and grass. Light-bodied, with a good amount of carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Dry and sweet. Not bad, but certainly overshadowed by a few other things I tried at the brewery.

I’m drinking this a little too late, as the last of the winters snow has melted. While I have been anxiously awaiting the summer for months, this beer temporarily brings me back to the nostalgia of a below 0 winter day. Snow, mountains, a roaring fire, and bottles of Cabin Fever.

12oz bottle, courtesy of joet. Thanks, Joe!! Pours a very bright, effervescent, medium-golden color; very bright appearance; fine-bubbled white head with good retention and attractive lacing; great-looking pour. This is lovely. Perfectly balanced aroma, showing lively citrus, crisp malty notes of honey and cereal, hay, hints of grass, and delicate noble hop character; the honey presence is quiet, well-integrated, and nothing close to cloying. Medium or medium-light body: creamy texture in the mouth, with moderate amounts of carbonation; the honey notes ring clearly upfront, along with mineral and spicy bitterness, creamy cereal and hay-like malt presence, everything just beautifully put together and cleanly presented: gorgeous heller bock, and shows much of the charisma, balance, and liveliness that something like the Sierra Nevada Glissade doesn’t quite reach; damn, this is tasty stuff. Medium finish, showing lingering honey, mineral and spicy bitterness, and just a nice reminder of the clover honey and noble hops that define this beer; clean, hugely drinkable, nicely balanced ending.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Bottle. Pour was light to medium golden with a nice white head. Aroma was crisp with honey, light malt, and some bread characters. Flavors were well blended with a small toasted character, slightly sweet malt background, and a medium to low character of sweet honey. Good brew.
