Appearance: pours a honey/golden yellow color. a finger or two of a white head with good retention and leaving behind a small lacing. strong clarity and brightness to it.

Smell: floral honey, pilsner malts, spicy to floral hops, fairly grassy.

Taste: opens up with a light lager profile, with notes of pilsner malt and bread. opens up a bit with a lot of floral notes. some from honey and some from hops. hops also give off a spicy taste. a grassy taste comes off at various times throughout

Mouthfeel: light and drinkable, refreshing. not quite as clean as I'd expect.

Overall: nice and drinkable, but not quite a perfectly formulated light bock. maybe the honey takes away from the overall profile but it also adds some good flavor. good but I won't be reaching for it again.
