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.

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.

Dogbrick (11180) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle from Festival Foods in La Crosse. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a thin off-white head that recedes to an outer ring quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malt and molasses. Light, clean body with flavors of sweet honey, cereal malt and a bit of spice. The finish is sweet and malty. Slightly above average overall.

crossovert (11015) - Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
12 oz bottle. It pours adeep gold with a fizzy white head that doesnt leave much lacing as it recedes. It has a classic smell, yes they added honey but the smell is a good helles bock flavor with bready malts, a hint of caramel, some nuttiness and a touch of hops.There is a little bit of fruit in there too. The flavor is a little bit weaker. The malt is buttery and biscuity and the hops don’t really show themselves in the flavor like they should. They add flavor but aren’t assertive, they do nothing to balance the sweetness. I generally like NG lagers but this one fails in the taste. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-12-2011 04:52:19
