3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thanks Jeff! Pours clear gold with a fizzy head that slowly fades away. Aroma is sweet cereal grain with some bread and hay. Taste has a very nice honey sweetness that mixes perfectly with cereal and pale malt. Good amount of hops add a nice grassy and spicy taste. Very light bitter finish. Medium body. Mouthfeel is smooth and even a little syrupy. I love a good Heller Bock and this is a very good one.

3/16/2012. From bottle. Pours light orange amber with a white head. Sweet fruity aromas with light malt. Flavors have light spice, honey, caramel and floral notes. Very good for the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear bright golden with minimal slightly off white head. Aroma is sweet with light straw malt. Crisp light body with a weak finish. Decent beer but definitely like the other new glarus bock better

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: thanks, Jeff! My New Glarus supplier. Slightly muddled, super bright golden body with a small, flimsy white head that quickly sizzles into a mild collar around the edge of the brew. Aroma has notes of sweet honey covered cereal grains, musty & spent hops, pale malts, & perhaps even a little toffee (though I may just be mistaking that for more honey). Taste also carries through with a good amount of honey - sweet but not nearly overboard. You can taste the fresh, bready lager yeast with bright grainy notes, a light dusting of hops that never get bitter, & a pretty dry, clean finish. Lasting reminders of yeast & honeycomb. It’s a simple beer, but a pretty nice one at that. Would love to have this in the fridge for simple occasions.

A pleasant beer overall. Aromas are sweet grains. Nice sweet wheat flavors as well. A nice smooth bock.

Pours a nice golden color, white head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma of hay, malt, and honey. Tatse is crisp and light with a decent amount of honey addind sweetness without being over bearing. Good brew from a great brewery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy, sweet, hay, honey aroma.
Tastes the same. Fairly hoppy but with a sweet honey flavor. Bit of a bitter finish.
I’m on the fence with this one, not my favorite New Glarus, but a decent one nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle thanks to queenholly. Clear gold without any head. Nose is honey and plenty of breads malts. Flavor is a direct reflection of the honey aroma. Toasted bread with honey with a medium grain body, simple and straightforward Bock. Finish is clean with a sweet honey finish. Did I mention you can find honey in this beer? I enjoyed this and could drink more then one bottle.

Milky orange cream. Nose is rustic with a clean malt profile. The honey hits in the middle and just keeps coming. It really is impressive. Maybe too sweet for me but would be great on a warm day.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Easy to look at - easy to drink. Just a twinge of honey in the taste and aroma. Lots of bread and a bit of malt in the taste as well.
