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.

I am drinking this a month before its best buy date. The nose is not big. It’s clean with a hint of lightly cooked sugars and traces of light grains. It pours brilliant pale gold with a very light copper tint under a thin white head that quickly dissipates to nothing. A palate of light grains lightly seasoned with caramel and a hint of hops could benefit from a soft creamy carbonation. Medium bodied but nearly flat and the absence of a creamy head is disappointing. This beer could use more cowbell.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden color with an eighth of a finger of white head that immediately dissolved away into no head what-so-ever. Honestly, it looks like a BMC beer and had I not poured it myself, that’s what I’d take it for, on appearance alone.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma department either. Some subtle aromas of toasted malt and touch of hops, but really not much at all. Not doing much to change my mind that it’s not a BMC beer.

Taste: However, this beer sure as hell doesn’t taste like a BMC beer!! Strong flavors of toasted malt, immediately followed by some caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness, finished with some nicely balanced hops. Really a great tasting beer!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, crisp and very effervescent. With an ABV of 6.1%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This beer, while lacking in appearance and aroma, it more than makes up for in the taste. Delicious!!

A- light golden honey color with a light head.

S- smells like a bock

T- malty, corny, and overall good

Mf- syrupy but still smooth.

O- not a bad beer but too bland for my taste buds. Bock drinkers would like it!

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.
