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.

Nice, dark gold color with a lingering white head. Cereal and light malt aroma with a slight, freshly cut grass hop aroma. Decent, light malt and hop flavor combination with a stronger alcohol presence throughout the taste. Crisp, clean, dry mouthfeel; medium-light body.

A solid bock beer with a definite alcohol edge in the flavor department.

not my favorite action from boulevard, whos smokestack series is unreal, but their regular lineup doesn't always impress me. this pours a clear golden color with an average white head, not really showing much carbonation or character. the nose is simple, sweeter golden malt, light toast, and a german or Czech style hop profile, which is just slightly bitter, but not enough to overcome the malty sweet. I would like to see some more hops in this, even for a bock, its out of balance. it also doesn't have the grain depth and complexity of the better bocks around. this is clearly a mass appeal dumbing down of the style. not particularly interesting, but its very easy drinking. super clean feel, despite the sugar, and good enough carbonation. this might be my least favorite beer from these guys, who usually go above and beyond, this one underwhelms.
