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 1600s 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.

Bottle pour. Clear light amber color with medium head that fades quickly. Sweet malty aroma. Light to medium body. Malt taste but quickly becomes very sweet and moved to a sour taste. Not a horrible beer for "having a few" but not many flavors and nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

theOptimator (381) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Aroma is light sweet honey malt. Appearance is dark golden clear with small off white head. Taste is sweet malt followed by hop bitterness and a bit of tangy aroma hops. Palate is medium light. Light malt and a crisp hop bitterness lingers. Overall a nice beer that is a good drinker. Smooth and hides alcohol well. Malt could be larger and more complex. Hop bitterness also a bit too pronounced detracting from the malt.
