Draft. Honey and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet honey, orange, malt, and moderate astringent/bitter herbal flavor. Body a bit light. Pretty good.

On draught at the brewpub. Arrived a crystal clear golden amber with a moderate white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left substantial lace. Mild aroma of bread and a touch of honey. The flavor is malt with some mild honey sweetness. Mild bitterness at the finish.

Love the look of this beer. Nice color and good tasting. To me had a bit more heavy malt flavoring than I prefer but was enjoyable in the sampler glass I had with their beer sampler on the menu. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a golden amber color with average head. Had a little bit of a malt scent but not too much. Had a really good taste as the malts were nicely mixed together for a smooth, clean finish making this beer rather tasty.

On tap at Moosejaw. Poured clear, very light amber with a nice sticky whitish head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and bready notes with lemon and less earthy highlights.. OK. The flavor found sweet caramel and bready notes at the core.. a hint of honey down there too.. quite bitter on the edges, sporting earth and a touch of citrus.. weird for a bock, but overall sweet and tasty. Medium-bodied with dense carbonation on the palate.. bitterness rose as it progressed.. not bad.

Great brewery in the Wisconsin Dells. This brew is a past winner of the silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival. It is a deep golden, medium-bodied lager which gets its color, body & sweet malt character from imported Vienna malt.

From Skyview’s growler. One of the better bocks I have had anywhere. Tons of vanilla in the aroma, and sweet malt is a secondary though. A light orange, cloudy appearance. Flavor has caramel, sweet malt, and more vanilla. Thick and heavy on the palate.
