COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cool days draw us close to the warmth of home fires. This is the season to sip away the chill and embrace quiet evenings with friends and family. You hold a Wisconsin Style Honey Bock, easy going and more approachable than its traditional dark German cousin. Bock beers have existed in Wisconsin for over 150 years. This pale bock is brewed with an exclusive blend of Wisconsin two row barley that balances seamlessly with our special European hops. Naturally sweet Clover Honey was added in the kettle accenting warm flavor notes on your tongue. Whether you reminisce the passing summer sun or thrill to squeaky steps through drifting snow one thing is certain about winter in Wisconsin, this too shall pass.

Brand-spankin’ new off the shelf. Pours straw-colored with a creamy white head that dissipates quickly. Very clear. Not much of a nose - light malts with a little sweetness. Definately a decent malty taste up front with a decent background honey flavor. Showcases this flavor much better than another Wisconsin honey beer that shall remain unnamed. Crisp with low to medium body. Mild hop flavor on the finish. Very good and refreshing, just not anything outlandish.

Bottled. Poured crystal-clear lighter golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet hay, biscuits, and honey with a deeper earthy and black peppery character.. the honey really rounds it off nicely. The flavor had a tangy, yeasty opening impression with sweet honey rolling onto the middle.. pale malts and something corn-like down there too.. mild bitterness in the form of earth and faint fruit.. finished sweet with more honey and dusty yeast. Light-medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation that worked well here.. fairly crisp feel.. very easy drinkin’.

Bottle picked up from the brewery on a Golden Ale run - Pours a nice light amber with a massive frothy cream head. Nose is all malt and barley, real fresh and pungent. There’s almost a melon frutiness that’s intermingling with some faint hops to make some light sourness. Was a bit sweet initially, but that faded pretty quick. Oh man...the honey is right there on the first sip, and then transitions into the barley with apple and grape notes. Just a hint of herbal hops on the finish. Sweet, but not overbearing by any means, and with some nice boozy notes that warm rather than bite. The carbonation is dialed up too much, but the light body makes this really easy to drink. This one grew on me as I got through the bottle.

Seems to me the first time NG made Cabin Fever it was a belgian style ale. That’s ok, I’ll take another bock. Clear light golden color with a moderate off-white head. Clean aromas, with honey, pale malt, and hint of alcohol (akin to a malt liquor). Pure malt sweetness from the first touch of the lips. LIght honey and hints of alcohol. Light floral hops. Thicker feel with just enough zip to help it across the palate. Strong malt goodness.
