New Glarus Cabin Fever Honey Bock
From New Glarus – 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.
New Glarus Brewing – Cabin Fever Honey Bock – 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 5.5% abv.
Appearance: Pours a light yellow gold wit a thin white head. The body is clear with visible rising carbonation.
Aroma: Spicy hops, dry malt and honey suckle.
Taste: Spicy hops, sweetness (somewhere between sweet corn and honey) and some crusty bread notes.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: Great, smooth, slightly sweet lager. Reminds me a bit of Full Sail LTD 02 Lager, which is one of my seasonal favorites.
