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.

Pours a dark golden color. Smell is of malts, biscuts. Taste is malty, biscuty, a touch of sweetness. Overall a refreshing and good beer.

This is an okay Bock, but leaves a little to be desired. Could definitely be smoother to drink compared to similar beers. Overall, a decent value at most places you go

Dark gold with coppery tones and a small white head. Rich malt aroma, very much like a German bock. Sweet with a bit of an astringent bitterness fighting for dominance. Not a smooth balance. Too bitter of a finish for an otherwise well done bock.

RobertDale (6985) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAR 13, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy pale amber with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit. Taste is malt, caramel, yeast, and some fruit. OK.

tightslice (1529) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is bready, malt syrup, some honey, floral and slightly metallic. Taste is sweet then medicinal / vegetal bitter like some ancient elixir, but not the kind that gives you immortality and thus worthy of the Ill-fated Eternal Drain Pour.

Zymurgeist2 (2439) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Draft at San Jose airport. Husky grainy aroma. Faint floral. Clear dark gold with head that quickly dissipated to a collar and dusting, but there is nice patterning down the sides. Tate is moderately astringent with moderate high bittering. Slight alcohol warmth is nice. Really a bit rough and lacking rich maltiness that this style demands.

altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUL 5, 2016
[Dec 31 2015] Bottle at Gordon Biersch SLC airport. Golden body. Malty nose. Taste is malty, wheaty, sweet, some caramel. Dry in the finish. Okay.

JohnRMurdoch (5151) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Tap @ Gordon Biersch Taipei. Hazy yellow amber, reasonable head. Lemon yeast aroma. Black currant and malt flavour. Flowery perfumey aftertaste. Not one to get excited about.

stevoj (5878) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 22, 2016
On tap at Oakland airport. Light copper body, minimal head. Sweet malt aroma, taste follows with more sweet malt, honey. Body is fantastic, slick, slippery. Shame they serve it ice cold.

This was a good beer it had a smooth balance between hops and malts, it didn't have that pronounced hop note that I expect though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

asheft (3125) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2016
On tap at DTW airport. Sweet, fresh base malt with very low to no hops presence. Clear orange-gold under a thin, white collar. Flavour is sweet, cracker and bread malt with a moderate bitterness and zesty noble hops accent. Medium body, smooth, medium carbonation, slightly warming.
