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.

Pours to a clean golden body with a tall white head thatís foamy and frothy. Nice lacing. Looks great! Looks like a "beer" should. The beer aroma is sweet honey and reminds me of an Oktoberfest. Has that autumn flavor. Perhaps thatís all the honey? Clover leaves and flowers. Dry bock even with all the honey. The palate is really simple to drink. Very clean body.

Pours a lovely pale golden yellow, with medium-sized white creamy head. Flavor is complex, with some sweetness, some grassy flavors, and a touch of hop bitterness. This would make a very nice summertime beer--late winter isnít the right time for it.

Clear yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is a bit grainy with some honey. Flavor is much like a normal lager, honey barely peeks out on the tongue. Creamier than most macro lagers and quite refreshing. Would love to drink this on a hot summer day.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours macro yellow with a white head. The aroma is corny with some wheat. The flavor is corn, wheat, some fruit and honey. Not very much hop character in the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad but nothing special.

Daughter recommended this brew, but it didnít meet expectation. It was OK, but there are alot of beers Iíd rather drink in the middle of a WI winter.

Dark yellow color with a large head. Floral and spicy hop aroma with strong grains. Flavor is very strong on the raw grains. Light corn and a floral hop bitterness. It seems more like a well made pale lager than a heller bock, though heller bock is technically a pale lager...

Skyview (5177) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Flanagans in Appleton, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden amber colored brew with a slow dissipating -off-white head. Aroma of golden grain malt, floral hops, light honey, and some mild vanilla. Taste is medium bodied, slightly sweet with flavors of golden grain malt, honey and floral hops. Finish is semi-sweet, some mild short lived bitterness and then a honey golden grain malt aftertaste that slowly disappears. Actually, a nice session heller bock for the winters.

Golden color with a thin but foamy white head. Aroma of honey and hops. Anitialy sweet taste of honey with a light malty body and high carbonation. Not bad but overall dominated by the honey.
