I've heard some not so great reviews on this one, so I wasn't expecting much. New Glarus has a strong reputation and I was surprised to hear they may have messed one up... they didn't. This beer was great.

Served via bottle into New Glarus pint glass.

A = Nice and golden color, clear and a perfect head.
S = Sweet honey and bock... mmmm.
T = Bock with a hint of honey. Great with McNuggets and great in a bock... who would have guessed?
M = Like a bock should be.
D = Glad I tried it and will try again.

Full disclosure time; I had a touch of cold left over and I probably shouldn't have been reviewing, but I couldn't resist. Poured a Spotted Cow after this beer and it tasted normal, but wanted to give full disclosure on this one.

4.4/5  rDev +23.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Copperish and brassy. Nice white head rose to about two fingers with and aggressive pour and settled nicely into a white ring and some solid lacing. Hazy beer with good carbonation.

Smell - Not much to go on here. Light faint toasted grains and a bit of a sweet smell.

Taste - Light at first with a bit of a sweet note right out of the gate but then a nice bit of hop character settles in and provides a very nice balance. This is a beer that as you're swallowing a drink you're preparing to have another.

Mouthfeel - Solid carbonation and solid presence for a very smooth and easy drinking beer. I know because of it's style this beer will catch up to you. But it really tastes and drinks like you could hammer down 12 - 15 of them.

Overall - Another wonderful beer from New Glarus. I have very limited access to these beers and each time I'm able to get one it's worth the wait!

My sister did a bunch of criss cross trips across the US from Massachusnuts to Washingtone and everything between last week (no, she's a doctor, not a truck driver, she just had some wierd plans). In Wisconsin she stopped and bought me two obscure (to me) beers. One broke in the garage when she got here (alcohol abuse). The other was this. And it is a pleasant surprise. The call it Honey Bock and also Lager on the label. I think these are descriptive titles. It's clean, mild and extremely well balanced.

I would call it a very interesting lager. Flavorful and refreshing. Maybe I have to start checking out obscure WI breweries. I had a bad experience with obscure IN breweries, good experience with obscure NY breweries. I will need to pay attention to the cheese heads.

4.4/5  rDev +23.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: I really don't know how better it could look. Pale yellow with golen hews. Streaming carbonation, 2 finger head. Wonderful.

Smell: Per the name, big dose of honey up front. Floral notes, Not much of a hop profile. Clean. Very approachable.

Taste: A wonderful taste. Very approachable and clean. Grains and malt with floral notes and a nice clean honey aspect. A little resin of past prime hops. Aftertaste is a sweet with a little bit of discombobulated grains.

Mouthfeeel: Light and clean. The viscosity matches the taste profile perfectly. The carbonation is there, wonderful.

Overall: This is a fantastic beer. I know most people will try to rate this lower because it's a shelf beer, but if I am honest, this beer is world class for the style and nearly overall. It's not rare, it's not BA and I didn't need to wake up at 4am to get this, but this beer is fan-freaking-tastic.
