COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Very few breweries in Germany nowadays still brew a light colored bock beer. Will-Bräu is still continuing with this tradition. The beer has a golden color, is very malty & has a rich flavor with a hint of sweetness. A well rounded brew.

Bottled. Pours a clear yellow color. Aroma of malt, honey and clover. Malty and clean. God sweetness with a somewhat dry finish.

Cornfield (5504) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2005
A golden bock, this was capped by a slew of large yellow bubbles in lieu of a head. It smelled of fresh ground malt, very intensely sweet. The commercial description speaks of a "hint of sweetness," but I found the bready malt flavor to be almost cloyingly so with little help from any hops to balance the brew out. Drinkable, certainly, but I’ll stick with other bocks.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2005
Was a dark gold pour, way too mellow for me, Was expecting a better flavor, but not too bad for me. my bottle seemed like sweet apple to me, with a slight herb flavor, aftertaste lingerd , sour. Possibly an older bottle, I’d like to compare it to a new one.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Unexpectedly golden in color. Rich caramel malts accentuated by an herbaceous and grassy blend of hops in the nose. Silky malty texture elevating caramel and toasty accents which leads into a thick and lingering buttery malt flavor, with the hops definately benefiting the process.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Bottle pours a slightly hazy pale golden, large sudsy white head, fairly nice lacing, with light carboantion.   Aroma of malts, oats, sweet grass, and light fruit.   Grassy flavor, quite malty, bitter sweet.   Fairly decent body, medium mouthfeel.   Finishes light, lingering sweet grass & malts.   Fairly clean too.   Decent.

Ernest (6260) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (bread), lightly hoppy (herbs, grass), with a hint of smoke. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery (almost syrupy) texture, soft carbonation. Not bad, not great...grassy/herbal hops swim around in a sea of bread. Turns a bit sour in the finish.

GermanBrews76 (679) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2004
quickly dissipating head tops a golden amber body. light grainy nose accented by citrus notes. surprisingly well hopped. leaves a sweet graininess on the roof of the mouth. big, expansive mouthfeel, some dryness. not really what I expected it to be. sweet and malty with citrus/earthy hops.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2004
The beer makes its escape from the 500ml brown bottle a slightly beclouded golden color with a modest creamy white head and after its disintegration, the lace forms a thin sheet to obscure the glass. Malt dominates the nose, sweet and fresh, also crisp and clean with the start nicely malted and a bit sweet with a light to middling top. Finish has pleasant hop spiciness with the acidity light to moderate and the aftertaste desert bone dry, a nice drinkable beer.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Pale, but not overly so, some slight caramel shading is present. Not a lot of foam, malty nose with some funk, fairly clean on the palate, not overly complex, sugary, dries out on the finish.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JUL 4, 2004
Ligher in color and body than expected for a Bock, very small head. Aroma is pleasant fruity malt. A nice beer, sweet fruity malt with a distinctive hint of spice, refreshing.
