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.

daknole (8856) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2010
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.

355mL thanks to Ughsmash. Pours a clear golden with a larger, pillowy, creme head with decent retention and small lace. Looks great for style. Nose is clover honey and sweet malt with rich German malts and honey wheat bread. Taste is on for style- very doughy/bready, full-bodied, sweet, malt forward. Very good for what it is- simple, sessionable, and exhibiting traditional sweet lager characters minus and soapiness or chemical off-flavors. Clean, fresh palate. Very good. +1 for making an awesome session lager.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of madvike. Thanks! Pours a clear pale golden color with a thin white creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of grassy hops and pale malts with a sweet honeyish finish. The taste is sweet and dominated by the honey, with some toasted malt notes, caramel and a grassy hop finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Good beer, highly drinkable.
