Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
Boss Tom’s Golden Bock is our seasonal offering for late spring. The smooth, soft maltiness of this traditional lager is complemented by a noticeable but restrained hop presence. The beer finishes with a lingering dryness and just a hint of caramel. The word “bock” also means “billy goat,” and images of goats are often used as a symbol of the style.

Pretty basic, dark golden/amber color with sweet malt aroma from the wheat, a little hop and not much carbonation. Pours with normal head that disappears when you turn away from looking at the glass...
Malty aroma and no hop presence until tasted and even then, weak with no aftertaste.
Light mouthfeel--just above water and short of oily-- and bland flavor. Not much better than generic megabrew lager, IMO. Not impressed but not sent screaming from the glass either---smooth drinker for being slightly over 6% abv. Needs either a different hop variety or more of same. Perhaps a second malt of rye would also help relieve the "blandness". Just slightly better than OK. A Disappointment from Boulevard, who brew the outstanding "Smokestack" series.
