Stunningly malty and pale in color. One of the best blonde bocks I've ever had. Between New Glarus and Capital, it's a horserace!

This is a very good Beer. This is a very nice surprise. Wasn't sure what I was getting myself into when I grabbed this. Glad I grabbed it. If it was sold in my town I would regularly stock it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light bitterness in the nose. Aesthetics are top notch: huge, creamy, white head that is mostly lasting. Excellent lacing. Body sparkles like champagne. Picked up a hint of pistachio in the intial taste. Very tasty; good overall brew. Could serve as a more than adequate session brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle form Kevin42. Great straw/gold pour with a one finger head that fades into a bubble film. Nose is very hoppy with alcohol hints. Mouthfeel is thick and it coats the tounge well. Taste notes are hops, bitter honey, and straw. The finish is quite pleasant, as it is sweet and smooth. This is not the best New Glarus brew that I have had, but it is very good. Overall it is a very satisfying beer and I would recommend it.

Golden blonde; creamy, medium head; mild, mild saaz and honey in the nose. Wonderful body right away- honey is used to good effect. Not too sweet but just the essence.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sparkling golden body with very lively tiny bubbles that lend a hand to the pleasing rocky white head. The aroma is sweet malt and some aromatic hops. I might smell honey but maybe it is just because I read the label first. Anyhow, the flavor is a nice mellow maltiness followed by a generous helping of noble hops. All combine to produce a very delicate and very nice brew. The palate is medium, bigger than expected, and generally quite crisp. Another fine offering from the fine folks at New Glarus. Thanks JCapriotti for the surprise!

bottle. pours a very pretty gold color with a thin white head. strong nose that is sweet, probably the honey. spicy flavor, good hop taste. this would go well with some spicy jambalaya, or other flavorful food. finish is much more mellow. there is a sweet undertone to this beer that is nice.

This was a nice summer beer with head that disolved almost instantly. Nice sweet honey taste that is not overbearing. I could easily drink six of these on my back porch in the summer without even realizing it.

Once poured the head quickly disappears. Strong sweet honey aroma. I have yet to taste a honey beer that has blown me away. Taste is sweet honey and almost wine-ish qualities. Very good for this style. I haven’t tasted one like this before. Extremely refreshing and very well done session style beer. Nice present from a friend who’s father in law got it for him and he shared with me.

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
