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.

Looking at this beer, you wouldn’t think it a bock. It’s bright and clear as a pilsner, with a decent head after a tame pour. Smells biscuity, with some grass thrown in there too. Flavor follows, light and grassy and a bit bready - can’t taste much honey, though it is there. Mouthfeel is light, almost like a light lager; good amount of carbonation. Overall, a decent beer, but definitely not my favorite from them. I’d much rather have a Hometown Blonde if I were going for a lager, as I feel it’s sweeter, cleaner, and even has a bit more of a honey flavor to it, though that might just be the sweetness talking.

Honey smell. Taste is honey, a bit of a kolsch type of taste, a bit of bitterness, and a mild honey sweetness in the aftertaste.

Pours a pale straw color. Flavor is light, crisp and extremely refreshing. Extremely drinkable, this is a beer that could be consumed all night long. Overall clean and refreshing. Honey is surprisingly absent for a honey bock.

New Glarus Cabin Fever has a thin-to-medium white head, a deep gold, slightly hazy, bubbly appearance, and very little lacing left behind. The aroma is of mild, subdued malts, and a touch of honey. Taste is of those elements, but the honey and hop bitterness really present themselves in the taste. Mouthfeel is medium, and New Glarus Cabin Fever finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

Bottle: Clear gold with a thick white head. Honey, barley aroma. Taste is barley malt, honey.... Almost a little smokiness to the honey....a hint of spice...grows sweeter as it warms..... Pretty good.
