3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a nice summer beer with head that disolved almost instantly. Nice sweet honey taste that is not overbearing. I could easily drink six of these on my back porch in the summer without even realizing it.
Pours gold with a white head and some protein globules. Smells breaddy and is approaching tarte. Tastes of toasted hops, honey, some sticky molasses, some peppery bites on the finish. alebrewer (140) - Mentor, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2009
This bottle kept it’s shape very well, and had no loss of it’s beauty. Still great creamy head with excellent retention. The aromas were honey, malt and some slight hops. This pale bock was a very good beer, dangerously quaffable. prosqtor (408) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2007
This was a good one, drank on tap in NG at some bar and in the bottle. Nice deep golden color, and LOTS of head. Smells slightly sweet and hoppy. Tastes almost like a barleywine (!!!!), with the sweetness offset by the hop bitterness. Too bad they don’t make it anymore. tennisjoel (1460) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Once poured the head quickly disappears. Strong sweet honey aroma. I have yet to taste a honey beer that has blown me away. Taste is sweet honey and almost wine-ish qualities. Very good for this style. I haven’t tasted one like this before. Extremely refreshing and very well done session style beer. Nice present from a friend who’s father in law got it for him and he shared with me. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Another disappointment fro New Glarus. Pale amber with a weak white head. Sweetness in the aroma, corn, MacIntosh apple, clover honey, malt. Light body and some tackiness in the mouth. The flavor was moderately sweet at the start and finished dry. Better than lutefisk.

Bottled. Clear gold with a white head. Fruity aroma with malt notes and honey. Taste is sweet, sweet, sweet. Lingering honey-like aftertaste. MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Light clear gold. Smells like creamed corn. Some malts, sweet with berries. Somewhat creamy. TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Bottle at jeffc666’s Birthday Gathering. Courtesy of jeffc666. Golden body with a small foamy white head. Nose is corn and cream of wheat with light berry notes. Taste is corn syrup, light butter, and more cream of wheat. Body is fairly smooth and creamy with a mild carbonation feel. Finishes with sweet malts and corn notes with lots of grain coming through.

Bottle sampled at jeffc666’s B-day gathering 2/6/05: Pale orange color with a small white head. I noted honey, wheat, caramel, and lemon in the aroma - not what I would expect when I see this is billed as having Saaz for the aroma. Taste is sweet, with notes of honey coated malt, metal, and spice. Light bodied and thin. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2005
Sampled at jeffc666’s gathering. Aroma of creamed corn, spent grain and some fruitness. Taste is very light with notes of grain, lemon and some faint hops. Faint notes of corn in the aftertaste. Body is light and thin. Drinkable.
