COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The smooth, soft maltiness of Boss Tom’s Golden Bock is complemented by a crisp but restrained hop presence. The mild warming quality of the beer makes it perfect for days when there is still a bit of a chill in the air. The beer finishes with a lingering dryness, and just a hint of caramel.

nuplastikk (4321) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2013
12oz shorty bottle. Filtered tan-orange body, thin white head. A pretty well done Heller Bock, sweet and malty, with delicate yeast tones. Smooth and sweet, with perfect subtle nuances, this is really a great example of the style. Rich golden malt, pungent authentic yeast undertones, peppery noble hop bite. Right on, nails it.

EtTuCthulhu (1022) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2013
The color of this beer is a clear dark golden color with a medium white head that fades quickly, and the aroma combines hints of bread malts and sour dough yeast. The taste combines a mildly sour and a slightly sweet flavor, which, when paired with the light body, slick texture, average carbonation with a bite, and a slightly sour finish.

574deadzone (1023) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours a clear, full golden with a buoyant, thick eggshell head. Nose involves prominent doughy yeast, spicy hops, faint dust and cellar notes, soft citrus and evergreen. Quite sweet initially with a cleansing bitterness. Medium-full bodied, creamy, actively carbed, with a scrubbing dry bitter finish. I really enjoyed this. It isn’t especially demonstrative, but the nuances of the nose in conjunction with how it presents on the palate impressed me. Simple yet complex at the same time. Cool brew.

AbbeyRoade (299) - Missouri, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Aroma is a bit grassy but faint. Taste is very mild with some peppery notes from hops. Some hops left on the palate after swallowing. Not my favorite beer, but refreshing nonetheless. A bit too crisp and grainy for my liking.

Bottle. Clear light gold pour with minimal head. Grainy, bready malts. Touch of caramel sweetness. Lightly hopped.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 8, 2013
A - An aggressive pour reveals a dark golden body with a small head that disappears. No lacing. S - Bready malt, toasted nutty lager yeast, some dry grain. T - Grainy from start to finish, honey-like sweetness melded with an assertive lager yeast, mild grassy hops stick to top and back of the mouth and create a little pepperness on the finish. M - Light to medium body, very crisp for a Maibock. Overall good brew here. Nose was a little weak but other than that it was good. Hops really show up in the aftertaste. Always nice to see a Maibock in a breweries lineup. Serving type: bottle 04-20-2011

2013 bottle to a pint glass. Pours a clear golden yellow with a soapy white head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Taste is banana and malt with some biscuit. A little sweetness and very little bitter. Medium oily mouthfeel with a little alcohol warmth and slightly dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
