Poured a dark gold color with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dry straw, buttery malt, and a very light citrus. Corny maltiness, very sweet, faint light hoppiness. A very light bock, that I would pass on next time. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Here’s one I’ve missed in trades. Thanks Joe (marinaro500) for the bottle. Clear straw body, thin off-white head. Aroma of honey-glazed toast. The body is surprisingly light and sweet with honey, biscuits, and an earthy, grassy hops finish. There are few beers where all of the components are so distinct individually. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Bottle. A fair little bock. Clean smelling and tasting. Light scents of malt and honey with some hop. Clear amber color. Small white head. Light tasting, malty with just a touch of honey. A decent session brew. mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2004
clear gold, white head. malt, honey, taart candy sugar aroma. flavour is mildly pepper with apple, honey and malt. mildly earthy finish. not bad. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Out of the bottle this brew pours a glowing honey/gold with a fizzy white head. Very sweet honey kick to the aroma, slightly fruity, with a faint hopping. This brew has a ton of sweet honey in the thick malty body. Lightly fruity, with a decent balance, smooth on the palate and a thick body. Great sweet lager.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2005 The body is a gold and slightly orange body. The head is thin and white. Intense aroma of back pepper, honey, and over ripe pears. The body is light and playful with carbonation and a slick, greasy finish. The taste is that springiness that I always seem to notice with Saaz hops. It is honey sweet with a minty finish. Also has some strange hay in the back of the mouth. Interesting but a little too sweet. Crockett (1119) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2004
Pours gold with a medium white head. Thin honey aroma. Fatty meaty malts. Apple, spice, honey, and grass. A little mint in the finish. I would have expected a better effort from N.G.. Radek Kliber (7369) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 15, 2004
Fresh organic honey aroma, warm and fruity. Sweet a bit thinner texture than Staghorn. Dry finish . Alcoholic finish. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Poured "apple juice" (great description BTW) with thin white head...smelled malty and sweet, though not with honey...definatey grains...taste was very grainy with an overpowering cloying sweetness of honey...sour finish...not bad, but not my cup of tea...

Bright apple juice golden color with a medium egg white head that dissipates. This beer seems to be a bit of a contradiction. Aroma is mainly oatey grain with a kindof sweet undercurrent which makes since now that I have read the descprition, its the honey stupid. Flavor is also grainy but also sweet in a honey sortof way. I’m not sure if I dig any of the honey beers, especially since I don’t care for this from New Glarus, one of my favorite breweries.
