German style lager that is very average. Slight pale taste with hoppiness.

When you go on the Sam Adams brewery tour you sometimes get to sample their newest inventions before they hit the general market. This was one of those times. The Pale Bock was served from a tap with a hand drawn picture on the handle. It poured a nice orange gold and retained it's head for a good while. The aroma was discreet. I actually had to concentrate to pick up the faint hoppy smell. The flavor was citrusy, and had a VERY strong hops assault. The finish was quick and crisp, but was a little unsatsfying. Luckily they were serving food on this tour (which is rare). The Pale Bock was MUCH MUCH better when I drank it while I was eating. The flavors in the food (Jumbalaya) were well complimented. But despite the good turnaround there at the end, I'm not sure this one will make it to the public any time soon.
