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.

A Pours a golden orange with little head. Bubbles streaming from the bottom

S Sweet malt not much else going on

T Not as sweet as the smell. Strong bitterness right after you drink. Something tastes off.

M Nice carbonation. Clean mouthfeel.

O Not very impressed with this beer. Was hoping it would be a little sweeter. Not my cup of beer.

My bottle was dated best buy 7/1/10. Got it in a trade and maybe that's why I didn't enjoy so much.

tis a golden hued beer of malt and hay. carbonation is pitiful, sulking near the edge where the liquid meets the glass. i smell a bit of the grain profile, maybe a whisker of hops. the taste is a bit starchy, hops barely evident, alcohol ambivalent, refusing to show up. It is only 6%, on the low end for the maibock. Where are you Boulevard? Where are the hops, the booze? Why is this beer not of celebratory spring? I don't know. Maybe it gets too hot to quick in Kansas City. This reminds me of what so many call "lawnmower beer" which is code for boring. It is to be a revelry!

tried this alongside Elysian's Ambrosia Maibock, and it just got killed.

A- Should they change the name to brass bock? That's really the color of the beer, and that alliteration would work so well, "Boss Tom's Brass Bock" don't you think? Not any head on this which doesn't bode well for it.

S- Strongly malty, with a tendency toward the sweet and honey aspects. Also orange candy, cinnamon bread, fake maple syrup, orange soda. The aroma doesn't bode much better.

T- The taste is happily much less sweet than the aroma. Malt forward for sure with buckwheat honey and white bread crust. Also some medicinal tones which aren't the greatest. Some florals.

M- Just fine for this one. It's kind of syrupy but well carbonated enough to take that off the tongue.

O- I'm liking the taste less and less as I drink it, and it certainly isn't looking any better.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a clear golden yellow color. A two finger white head forms, but recedes in a second. Light spotty lace is left behind.
S: I do not get anything in the nose. Light pale malts and a grainy, cereal sweetness.
T: Pale malts again. Sweet caramel malt. Plenty of bread and biscuit flavors. A large yeast presents as well.
M/D: A light to medium body. Crisp carbonation. Not hard to drink. I finished my pint with no problems, and could quaff a few more if need be.

For the most part this is just kind of bland. Though not really bad. Just inoffensive. Not something I would recommend, but not the worst thing ever.

pours a clear yellow with a small egg-shell head, and good lacing.

smell is of grain, a touch of wheat, malt, and some citrus.

taste is of roasted malt, some grain, some citrus, and hops in the back, ends a little on the dry side.

overall an okay helles bock.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is not very good, with a mix of corn, grass and grain. The flavor is more of the same, with a mix of grain and grassy hops dominating the palate. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. There are a lot of good beers from Boulevard, but I really didn't enjoy this one very much.
