LongShot Traditional Bock

Traditional Bock by homebrewer Alex Drobshoff
Samuel Adams, LongShot collection

Nice brown color, clear, about a finger of head, nice lacing on the glass.

Malty, caramelized sugar, bready, pinch of sour like a good sourdough.

More maltiness, bittering but no hop taste to speak of, slightly bitter-sour like lemon zest but not fruity, sweet and again caramelized sugars coming through, earthy.

Mealy, thick-feeling but clean. Very lightly carbonated. Finishes dry.

Very easy to down.

I’m really liking this one. I haven’t explored the realm of bock too much. I think I need to remedy that. B+
