COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blonde Bock
Bock beers are represented by a male goat, which in German lore symbolizes strength and virility. In accordance with the Reinheitsgebot (German Purity Law of 1516), bock beers must have a pre-fermentation malt sugar concentration of 16%, which converts over to at least 7% alcohol after fermentation. These strong beers were made popular in the early 1600’s by monks in order to minimize their hunger during fasting periods. While most bocks are dark, Blonde Bock is golden-colored and malty with a rich, creamy head. The rich flavor is counterbalanced with just the right level of bitterness from the Hallertau aroma hops and create a very smooth profile.

R4N5H (1310) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2015
12oz bottle on 14-Nov-2015, poured into a long stemmed tulip glass. Hazy pale amber colour with a medium sized creamy white head which slowly dissipates. Medium body and carbonation. Aroma of cereal, yeast and sweet malt. Flavour of toasted caramel malt and hops. A pretty decent creamy bittersweet finish.

On tap at Detroit Metro airport, pours a bright, clear honey color with a tan head. The smell is toasted malt, mild fruit, caramel and bread. The taste is as it smells with a dry ending. The body is light+ with active, prickly carbonation. Just OK.

Flavor is a bit not as sweet as expected, in fact, a bit tart. However, the overall impression of this brew is good and I expect it to hold it’s own against the standard, average brew served by the major beer companies.

DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/20/15] Draught at Gordon Biersch Mission Valley in San Diego. Clear golden. Aroma of malt, slightly grainy, with honey-ish hint. Sweetish flavor with malt, bready, a bit caramelly, a bit honey-ish, with a slightly drier finish with a bitterish hint and a faint alcoholic note. Light to medium-bodied.

2.6
BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Tap at Gordon Biersch - ATL airport. Clear golden pour with minimal head. Bready, malty, a bit too sweet, with an odd rough edge on the finish.

3.3
Thisis12ptfont (1221) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Aroma of lemon, coriander, orange and hay. Appears a copper gold with a moderate foam. Taste is smooth with an odd malt funk, creamy vanilla, lemon, carbonated grain malt and coriander. Overall, not too bad. Big creamy malt overtones and a more assertive carbonation.

brandon1989 (691) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Pours a transparent golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is very bready and sweet malts, caramel. The taste is more of the same. There is a very minimal hop bitterness.

3.1
Luvystypotables (2067) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Aroma of yeast and bread, golden color with a lasting creamy well laced head. Creamy feel with a taste of bread and malt. With a bready finish.

slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
"a pretty nice malty aroma and flavor. the body is a little bit lacking for a 7% bock, but isn’t bad at all. average for the style, slightly better than the average beer overall."

2.8
Netsky (12) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Orange/gold with a small white head that doesn’t last long. Nothing in the aroma portends a firm maltiness. Flavor is toffee/caramel sweet with a light bitterness. Feels like a bock, full bodied with a slick creaminess. If i was going to drink a beer of this style I’d prefer something darker with more malt character.
