Sparkling apple juice body with medium-large off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, apple, honey, some corn, light herbal. Taste is medium sweet, apple, honey, some herbal, grain, floral, light peach. Light-medium, lightly sticky body -- good heller bock characteristics. Ok, but not up to snuff for this fine brewery.

My thanks to Pjones6738 for this one. This is a decent Blonde that pours a deep gold color with a thin white head. Slight hops and honey aroma. Flavor is crisp an light and really not very exciting. Not too bad though.

Not much of a traditional bock, but sweet and full bodied. There is a little hop flavor, but not too much. Nice balance of honey.

Pours gold with a white head and some protein globules. Smells breaddy and is approaching tarte. Tastes of toasted hops, honey, some sticky molasses, some peppery bites on the finish.

Medium yellow hue with an good head and lace. The aroma hints of toasted malts, aromatic hops, citrus, wheat fields and honey, Very floral on the nose. Sweet and silky taste with a lighty bitter and fruity undertone. Thin-bodied with a minor mettalic feel. Not a true bock but more of a hybrid, doesn't fit any style and doesn't really excel at any charcteristics either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium gold color. Largish foamy head. Aroma is slightly floral. A medium bodied beer. Mild malts are sweet. Honey flavor prevalent. Hops are very mild. Very smooth and slightly sweet. Nice tasting beer. I would never have guessed that this is a bock. I like it, but it sure doesn’t taste like most bocks I’ve had. Mouthfeel is thick and round. Finish is clean and very smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet

Poured a dark gold color with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dry straw, buttery malt, and a very light citrus. Corny maltiness, very sweet, faint light hoppiness. A very light bock, that I would pass on next time.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2005 The body is a gold and slightly orange body. The head is thin and white. Intense aroma of back pepper, honey, and over ripe pears. The body is light and playful with carbonation and a slick, greasy finish. The taste is that springiness that I always seem to notice with Saaz hops. It is honey sweet with a minty finish. Also has some strange hay in the back of the mouth. Interesting but a little too sweet.

Bottle at jeffc666’s Birthday Gathering. Courtesy of jeffc666. Golden body with a small foamy white head. Nose is corn and cream of wheat with light berry notes. Taste is corn syrup, light butter, and more cream of wheat. Body is fairly smooth and creamy with a mild carbonation feel. Finishes with sweet malts and corn notes with lots of grain coming through.
