Beer writer Alan McLeod recently wrote a blog dedicated to bock beers and included a nice review of our bock. Titled, "What Did The Chicken Drink Across The Road? Bock. Bock. Bock." Well put! Here is his review of Gansett bock.
The can of Narragansett Bock showed up in the mail the other week from the people who should explain to all you other brewers why you should ship your good beers out to people like me. Brewed at Rochester, NY, this beer gets real love from the BAers but sort of passed me by when I opened the first can. On the nose, I get honey, candy and a nice floral note. Missed that before. It pours a great aged pine wood burnished gold under a rich cream coloured head. Didn't spot that when I drank it's twin out of the can. Creamy malt with toffee and apple notes with steely yet herbal hop in a smooth sip. Bread crusty with even a hint of spice. This is really good. And at likely less than two bucks a can, a beer you really should get your hands on if you can find it.
