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.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

A - This clear and vibrant gold brew has the look of your average macro lager. The head is small but persistent, and a little bit of foamy lace is left on the glass. This looks pretty damn unimpressive.

S - Ahh. So its not a macro lager after all. Denser malt and some pilsener-like saltiness are very subdued, but pleasant enough.

T - Light grainy malts and a hint of noble hops. To me, this tastes like a subdued German pils or something. This is pretty weak at first, but the finish builds on the hop tang with some almost lemon-like flavors.

M - Light bodied, slightly creamy, and moderately carbonated. This is MUCH less fizzy than BMC stuff, however. The alcohol is detectable, but not invasive. This has an almost silky lightness on the palate that is sort of creamy, but without the weight of beers that I would usually describe as such.

D - This is an easily quaffable brew, but I don't understand the relatively high rating that this has been receiving. To me it falls into a similar flavor profile as a lot of Japanese or Mediterranean lager. Definitely head and shoulders above BMC, but still a pretty basic beer. The good part is that I could drink about a million of these without really thinking about it.
