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.

From a bottle in a shaker. Pours bubbly pale amber. Flavor is sweet, wet, and very mild. Most flavor is of honey and sweet smooth grain. Very pleasant lager but a little lacking in depth.

12 oz bottle. Clear yellow brown with a whitish head. Nose is slightly sweet honey and grass. Crisp and clean medium body; a bit sticky. Taste is citrus honey, wheat toast and chestnut.

bottle thanks to CLevar. poured into my trusty snifter. very clear dark gold color. medium sized white head that falls of quickly. nose is initially spicey like a tupelo honey. slightly floral, could be hops or honey. Taste is initially peppery again, but very pleasant. could be german hops. very light malt, slightly crackery, but not really bock-like. this is damn crushable for a 6% beer, but this is no helles bock. just sayin. well, ok, maybe. I like the hops in the beer though.

JonnyMadison (87) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle. Very smooth and light. The honey flavor is present, but the taste isnt too sweet or syrupy like some honey-flavored beers. Has a touch of bitter flavor, but still very drinkable.

February 14, 2014 via bottle from Churchill. Clear golden pour with nice amount of head that faded relatively quickly. Malty and grainy aroma. Taste was consistent with some spice. Finish was a bit dry with a slightly bitter finish.

Color of a typical lager. Big 2 inch fluffy head. Sweet bready aroma. Kind of a skunky taste. Dont really case for this one.

Bacterial (2949) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Easy to look at - easy to drink. Just a twinge of honey in the taste and aroma. Lots of bread and a bit of malt in the taste as well.

Bottle, thanks Jeff! Pours clear gold with a fizzy head that slowly fades away. Aroma is sweet cereal grain with some bread and hay. Taste has a very nice honey sweetness that mixes perfectly with cereal and pale malt. Good amount of hops add a nice grassy and spicy taste. Very light bitter finish. Medium body. Mouthfeel is smooth and even a little syrupy. I love a good Heller Bock and this is a very good one.
