Our spring bock beer is a strong German lager of dopple (double) strength, without the heavy body. It has a brilliant light amber color and a sweet-malty aroma. Its flavor is malt dominated with a touch of Saaz hops to balance it all out. Well-aged. Drink it while you can and help celebrate the arrival of spring. 29 IBUs, SG 1.082, 20.5°P, 7.2% ABV

Amber with little head or lace. Solid roasted malt flavor cut quickly by the hops. Bittering lingers at finish. It fills me, but the weak balance between sweet malt and bitter doesn’t quite satisfy.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Tap: Clean amber hue with a small but lasting frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of bready and caramel malts, light earthy and grassy Saaz hops, a touch of pear and banana esters. The taste is malty but not overtly sweet, the light handed use of the hop gives it just enough counterbalance and there is a faint fruity character for complexity. There is a bit of a mineral earthiness upon the finish that is tad disconcerting. The mouth feel is slick and sticky with a moderate alcohol character. A nicely done brew that is indeed a cross between a Maibock and a borderline Doppelbock.

On tap at the brewpub: This poured an orange/amber body with a decent head. The aroma was rich with sweet malts, caramelly without getting overbearing. Very smooth and lightly warm in the mouth, that rich maltiness continued in the flavor but had just enough of an earthy hop and alcohol presence to keep it from getting cloying. Very tasty and treading in Doppelbock territory.
