Brewsday Tuesday: Narragansett Bock

May 1, 2012

I went to Orlando, Florida, this morning for work and forgot to put the final beer from Anyaa in the fridge.  By the time I got home it was too late to get it chilled.  I was disappointed, but the back-up beer did not disappoint.

Name: Narragansett Bock

Brewed by: Narragansett Brewing Co.

Location: Providence, RI

Style/ABV: Helles Bock / 6.5%

Appearance: Pours a rich copper with a two finger cream head.  It recedes but is present throughout.  Great lacing is present.

Smell: Bready malts move into cut grass earthiness.  Some carmels and green apple are also present.  Very fresh.

Taste: Opens with some malt sweetness, the grassy earthiness comes in behind and finishes with some nice hop bitterness that lingers.  Once that disappears carmel sweetness lingers.  More please, now!

Mouthfeel: Creamy. Medium body with low carbonation.

Overall: The beer with the ram on the can is Spring in liquid form. It is fresh, earthy, and complex.  I am going to have to pick up a couple of more six pack before they go away.

Final Grade: A
