My first impression of the Honey Bock was a stale diet coke mixed with pie. The only thing weaker than the taste is the finish. It’s like puddle water. It just did not taste or feel like a beer at all. It also gave me a whopper of a headache, which is weird because beer never gives me a headache.
The only positives I can give it are the cost, the 5.80% abv and the pretty can.
I still drank three of them.
Am I too picky? Maybe. Maybe not. Either way, Gluek’s Honey Bock is not delicious. At first I thought it tasted like Busch Lite, and so I wondered, “Jason. Is this beer cheaper than Busch Lite? If so, maybe that’s something.”
Of course, there is no circumstance under which I would buy Busch Lite, so it turns out, it’s nothing.
My wife’s review, of course, is polar opposite of mine. She took one taste and said, “Not bad.” I said, “Try another taste.” She said, “Still not bad.”
If Brew52.com causes my marriage to fall apart, so help me God, I will hunt you down and kill you, Rett.
In conclusion, this beer is better than horrible.
