Sparkling apple juice body with medium-large off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, apple, honey, some corn, light herbal. Taste is medium sweet, apple, honey, some herbal, grain, floral, light peach. Light-medium, lightly sticky body -- good heller bock characteristics. Ok, but not up to snuff for this fine brewery.

My thanks to Pjones6738 for this one. This is a decent Blonde that pours a deep gold color with a thin white head. Slight hops and honey aroma. Flavor is crisp an light and really not very exciting. Not too bad though. Radek Kliber (7470) - 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. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Not much of a traditional bock, but sweet and full bodied. There is a little hop flavor, but not too much. Nice balance of honey. egajdzis (6669) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2005
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.

Medium yellow hue with an good head and lace. The aroma hints of toasted malts, aromatic hops, citrus, wheat fields and honey, Very floral on the nose. Sweet and silky taste with a lighty bitter and fruity undertone. Thin-bodied with a minor mettalic feel. Not a true bock but more of a hybrid, doesn't fit any style and doesn't really excel at any charcteristics either. Suttree (6466) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Gold, small but sturdy head. Nice toasty aroma. Fruity, kind of herbal flavor throughout. Slightly oily mouthfeel. I was unaware of any honey until I read the description, and I could not detect any in the aroma or flavor. A pleasently filling beer nonetheless. Thanks to Marinaro500 for this trade!

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. thedm (6275) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2003
This brew poured a large head of fine to medium sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a good lacing and a carbonated weak urine yellow colored body. The aroma is mild and sweet malted. The mouthfeel is smooth with a slight tingling sensation in its finish. The flavors are mild with notes of fruit and malt. Not a good example of a bock in my book. Ein sehr gut bier bitte! JPDIPSO (6255) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 27, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2004 Rerate- 07/12/04: This year the brewery seems to have found DMS. Lots of creamed corn in the aroma and touch in the flavor. Perhaps that is why it was late on the scene. 9/27/02 Small tiny bubbles emerge and climb through the clear golden liquid, creating a heady off white cover. Mild floral and honey aroma. Sweet pale malt flavors with undertones of sweet oranges and dry honey. Quite heavy and filling. Finishes rather dry ad very clean. Outstanding maiback.
