COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hell, erfrischend und hopfenhaltig, dazu ein plop´ aus der Bügelflasche – mit einer Genussoffensive will die Flensburger Brauerei den hart umkämpften Biermarkt aufmischen. Im Frühjahr freut man sich auf das Ende der dunklen Jahreszeit. Genau dafür zaubern die Braumeister der Flensburger Brauerei nun einen frischen plop´ auf die Genießer-Tische: den Flensburger Frühlingbock. Seit Anfang Februar im Handel, erweckt der Flensburger Frühlingsbock – golden leuchtend und funkelnd – Lust auf die kommende Jahreszeit. „Wir wollten ein Bier kreieren, in dem sich die Facetten des Frühlings wiederfinden“, so Hans-Peter Heyen, Geschäftsführer der Flensburger Brauerei. „Ein Bier, hell wie der Frühling, vollmundig und angenehm im Duft durch seine würzigen Hopfenaromen.“ Das jüngste Bier des Hauses löst mit 16,9 Prozent Stammwürze und 6,9 Prozent Alkoholgehalt den Winterbock jahreszeitlich ab. Gebraut wird das Bier mit eigens dafür aus Tettnang am Bodensee importierten Aromahopfen bevor es in die flens-typische Bügelverschlussflasche abgefüllt wird. Der frische Flensburger Frühlingsbock passt hervorragend zu frühlingskräftigen Speisen, wie zum Beispiel Lammbraten oder einer holsteinischen Käseauswahl. Aber auch zu einem zartbitteren Dessert bietet sich das neue Flensburger Bier an.

Nevalainen (81) - FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Clear golden, almost yellow color with tall white head. Fruity aroma. Taste is tiny sweet, strong and a bit alkohol, but it’s not disturbing. Full body and a short finish. Good beer.

Saeglopur (306) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle. Clear, pale golden body, with a big, creamy, white head, that won’t last very long. Aroma of grains, herbs, honey, candy. Taste with the same aromas, also some citrus. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a low carbonation and it finishes bitter/sweet, with herbs and honey and with some alcohol warmth. Not bad, but pretty flat. The smooth honey notes are nices, but otherwise nothing special.

GoufCustom (802) - HONG KONG - JUN 27, 2014


330ml flip-top bottle bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mongkok.

Clear light golden colour; Half finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Good sticky lacing and notable slight carbonation; Slightly fragrant and sweet aroma of full malt, with light floral nectar, very light caramel, sugar syrup, light pineapple, strong yeast, and light sharp grassy hops; Medium sweet taste of light lager malt, with light pineapple, flower petals, light sugar syrup, moderate alcohol, bread, biscuits, light yeast, lemon, light bitter hops and light sharp grass; Close to medium body. Dry, slick and slightly oily palate; Mouth feel is nice sweet maltyness - strong, but has a delightful light feeling. Okay slick body, sweetness is lightened syrup for French toast, tasty but not annoying. Also some surprising light pineapple and floral taste. Booze is fairly notable but not screaming. Bready and biscuity. Yummy!... Hoppiness is light pineapple, floral, lemon and light sharp grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is notable but light, which matches the light sweetness for a long-lasting light astringent finish; Dry after taste, Easy and light sweet to mouth.

Comments: A very neat and pleasant Heller Bock. Compare to Flen’s Winterbock, this one is full-on lagery, nice light sweetness boosted by some nice floral and tropical fruit aroma and taste. Hoppiness is light but bang-on to fit the style. This is a feel good beer, dangerously easy to drink and great for session, and one of those nice ones I wish it was in 500ml bottle instead of just 330ml. Enjoy!

Tydelig alkoholpreg. Lite syre, men litt sitruspreg. Litt kjip øl. Ikke den gode bocksmaken. (Berlin, 08.04.14)

Elwood74 (1) - Braunschweig, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014 does not count
Picked it up this morning at the local supermarket today. The bottle looked as if it would be a nice beer and it was ok. Taste is good; a beer tasting like a mediocre German white beer. The aftertaste is very pleasant. All considered a nice mediocre beer.

Klar gylden, perlende. Aroma af malt, en smule krydret. Krydret sødme, græs, korn, brød. Alkohol skinner igennem, også i lidt tør eftersmag.
