And I’m off and running

Well after a slow start to this awesome idea (I missed out on last week) I’m glad to say I just enjoyed a Gluek’s Honey Bock with lunch.  I was first introduced to this beer at a family reunion, not long after turning 21.  Now I had known of the Gluek’s brand, as it was a common staple in my dad’s fridge growing up, but never heard of the Honey Bock variety.

Tasted from a can (as pouring a beer of this quality into a glass just seems odd) the beer at first has the slightest bit of a malty aroma but dissipates quite quickly.   After pouring some out “for my dead homies” it appears to be of an amber kinda light brown color.  The taste is pretty watered down but rather quite enjoyable especially with the grilled cheese sandwich I’m eating at the same time.

In all fairness I once did a blind taste testing with my friends comparing this beer to our neighbor to the east’s Honeyweiss and it won out on all three tastings.  Now for some that might not be saying much but as a fan of honey beers I enjoy both.

Another fun fact about Gluek’s is that they are the nations second largest supplier of Energy Drinks brewing items such as Rock Star and Monster Energy drinks.

And bonus points that the liquor store near my house does sell this beer in singles.
