COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Custom Brewcrafters is a micro brewery that also contract brews for restaurants and pubs in northwestern NY. Custom BrewCrafters Spring Fever is a beer that marries old world brewing tradition with new world microbrewing. Spring seasonal March - April. Spring Fever is brewed in the tradition of a German Bock Beer with a deep, red color and a robust, malty character. We bring together the microbrewer’s thirst for hops and a clean top fermenting yeast to create a truly unique beer. Catch the fever and begin your flavor experience with a complex combination of malt and hops, fading to a long, crisp, dry finish.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2011 On Tap at The Office in Canandaigua NY. According the waitress it was 6% alcohol. Dark amber pour with minimal head, even from the tap. Aroma and flavor are sweet malt with quite a bit of toastiness. Iím not sure who chose to call this a Bock, but its basically a kicked up amber. I did enjoy the toasty/doughy flavor.

12oz bottle. Clear amber color with very little head. Aroma is sweet and smokey and malty. Iím not sure what happened to the toasty, doughy character that I tasted the first time. Still, Iím enjoying in this little bock and think it actually does work well as a spring time beer.

Very faint sweet aroma. Very malty with a sour hop finish. I was expecting a pale ale and I was confronted with this. I like bocks, really I do.. but this dosnít work for me.

Malt, hops and fizz. Wish they would serve this at the ballpark instead of flat and dry national brands. Refreshes. Pale in appearance and pales against rest of their lineup. Smells like beer, as nothing over-the-top added

A top-fermented answer to the Maibock. Nice bitterness and hop character to balance quite effectively the slight sweetness. Really takes the edge off a rainy day in spring!
