COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The smooth, soft maltiness of Boss Tomís 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.

Golden, clear as crystal with a linen white cap of foam. Slight vegetal aroma with a grainy, caramel malt flavor. Meh.

JMerritt (1813) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottled. Lightly browned orange with a large, light tan head. Big, straightforward caramel malt aroma. Sweet flavor, light brown sugar and toasty grains. Finish is a bit chalky. Rather high carbonation, a bit too much for my taste. Not much to this - itís not bad, but not overly flavorful and very one dimensional.

Pleasant well rounded bock, albeit somewhat low on flavors. Slightly watery on the ending. All in all quite pleasant.

commonmac (353) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Tap at New Bohemia. Smallish pint glass. Light golden color...leaning towards orange. Aroma doesnít really impress...skewing more malty sweetness. Taste is a little more average. Some malt. Maybe mild hops. Not much alcohol presence. Iím on board with the option but I want something more unique. Taste finishes mostly sweet and malt/cereal. Very drinkable. Aftertaste is slightly unpleasant....maybe flat. Much like the book Iíd rather drink with Huck Finn than Boss Tom Sawyer. More like middle manager Tom.

Tap at new bohemia. Gold with small head. Subtle aroma. Easy to drink and smooth. But not a ton of flavor. Above average, but not amazing.

Bottle. Clear golden body with a big white head. Aroma of bread, spicy hops, grass. Taste is grainy, grass and slightly hoppy. Nice bitter aftertaste.

Pours a light copper color with a lacey off white head. Notes of caramel, chocolate, orange citrus, and faint flowers.

nealblind (874) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Dark clear gold pour. Think head. Aroma of perfume barley, honey cookies. Big malt syrup flavor, almost belgian candi stuff going on here. Tastes a bit like wet leaves. Finishes dry-ish.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Taster on tap at iTAP-CWE in STL during RBSG. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good thicker lace. Medium plus body. Smooth kind of soft lighter carbonation. Kind of creamy. Bready malt, light bit of pepper. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, minimal bitter. Solid bock.

Homer321 (1963) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Draft. Nose is full of honey with a slightly peppery character to it (from the alcohol?). Pours a brilliant pale yellow with minimal head. Taste is a sweet malt with some cracker and white bread character to it. No sign of alcohol in the flavor and only a very faint warming. Pretty nice and clean, would just like to see a little more character to it.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 19, 2014
On tap @ Flying Saucer St. Louis. Clear golden pour with a small white head. Sweet caramel, honey, and bread on the nose. Some floral and grassy hops, a bit of yeast, and cereal. Sweet, malty, grainy flavor. Bread, caramel, honey, and a fair amount of sugar. Kind of grassy and lightly floral. Mild bitterness.
