Bottle from Festival Foods in La Crosse. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a thin off-white head that recedes to an outer ring quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malt and molasses. Light, clean body with flavors of sweet honey, cereal malt and a bit of spice. The finish is sweet and malty. Slightly above average overall.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of madvike. Thanks! Pours a clear pale golden color with a thin white creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of grassy hops and pale malts with a sweet honeyish finish. The taste is sweet and dominated by the honey, with some toasted malt notes, caramel and a grassy hop finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Good beer, highly drinkable.

A blonde bock with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet grainy and grassy malt with light talcum, mineral notes, OK. In mouth, a sweet adjunct like bock with corn, grass, so-so. On tap at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 19 2012. crossovert (14233) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
12 oz bottle.
It pours adeep gold with a fizzy white head that doesnt leave much lacing as it recedes.
It has a classic smell, yes they added honey but the smell is a good helles bock flavor with bready malts, a hint of caramel, some nuttiness and a touch of hops.There is a little bit of fruit in there too.
The flavor is a little bit weaker. The malt is buttery and biscuity and the hops don’t really show themselves in the flavor like they should. They add flavor but aren’t assertive, they do nothing to balance the sweetness. I generally like NG lagers but this one fails in the taste.

"another via trade w pfoxyjohn...this is a good summer refresher that lets you know lighter fare does not have to be simple or boring. light and crisp, but with a little body and a lot of flavor. nice rich malt & hop balance with a kiss of honey in the finish. aroma is much of the same." deyholla (12663) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet with a strong honey note and a caramel note. Flavor is quite sweet as well with honey, cereal and caramel notes. Surprisingly thick on the tongue.
