LongShot Traditional Bock

Traditional Bock by homebrewer Alex Drobshoff
Samuel Adams, LongShot collection

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

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

Taste:
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.

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

Drinkability:
Very easy to down.

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