BEER INFO

Brewed by:
New Glarus Brewing Company
Wisconsin, United States
newglarusbrewing.com

Style: Maibock / Helles Bock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Cool days draw us close to the warmth of home fires. This is the season to sip away the chill and embrace quiet evenings with friends and family.

You hold a Wisconsin Style Honey Bock, easy going and more approachable than its traditional dark German cousin. Bock beers have existed in Wisconsin for over 150 years. This pale bock is brewed with an exclusive blend of Wisconsin two row barley that balances seamlessly with our special European hops. Naturally sweet Clover Honey was added in the kettle accenting warm flavor notes on your tongue.

Whether you reminisce the passing summer sun or thrill to squeaky steps through drifting snow one thing is certain about winter in Wisconsin - this too shall pass.

Pour a nice golden color with a nice white fluffy head, there is a nice hop bitterness in the finish. There is some lacing left in the glass. Overall a good that is worth a try.

Aroma is fairly sweet, toasted, and nutty malt, with soft floral accents.

Flavor is more grainy than expected, worth floral honey sweetness and a dry, toasted malt finish.

One of a couple New Glarus beers I haven't tried since joining BA. Decent lager for pre-wood-splitting. This would be an excellent gateway beer for anyone looking to move on from macro swill. Well done per usual, NG.
