COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Spring Imp is brewed for the season when the monks in Munich would traditionally release them. It is a medium bodied Bockbier brewed to 7% alc which has more malt character than our permanent Hellesbock. Brewed with German malt, hops, yeast, the only Canadian ingredient is the water! These strong lager beers are rich in flavour as well as history and will put a twinkle in your eye! Prost!

Radek Kliber (6457) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle 355 ml
Aroma: sweet malty feel , maple sap with sugary backing . Pleasant.
Look: poured as amber with medium lighter white top. No lace.
Taste: milder , softer carbonation. Not much body for bock. Soft sugary sweetness. Borderline cloying but that just me. Good.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
A dark golden amber bock with a thin off white head. In aroma,loads of caramel malt with light maple and solvent notes, alcohol, mashed bananas, OK. In mouth, a lighter than expected sweet caramel malt with fruity esters, burned caramel, faint German hops, maple, watery bodied, scotch finale. Bottle from LCBO, prob 9 months old.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
2013-09-04. Crisp golden amber body with a large foamy off-white head that fades. 3+ Sweetish pale malt is biscuity and doughy with alcoholic undercurrent. Flavour is similar, warming alcohol coats the throat, pleasant sweet bready malt in the middle, finishes dry and relatively alcoholic. Smooth average plus palate is moderately carbonated. Okay, it is a simple but decent take on a style that I am not overly fond of. Bottle from GregClow I think. 7/4/6/3/13-14

andrewturba (969) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
Pours a clear copper with a thin white head that seems to last a while and average sticky lace. Aroma is caramel, melanoidins, plums and grapes. Taste is toast, melanoidins, smooth alcohol warming, and caramel. Fits the style.

tom10101 (2760) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle (355 ml). From czar, thanks(?). Clear amber with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is of bread, caramel, malt and light fruity notes. Taste is moderately sweet with bready notes, caramel, light fruits and spices. Weird texture, unpleasant sticky sweetness. Medium body. Overall, this is pretty bad. Too sugary and undrinkable.

tomthompson89 (1903) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2013
Not bad but not good either golden colour. Nose is malty, maple and slightly muted. Mouthfeel is thin, flavour reaches for the style but comes up short ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice hoppy apple like flavour. Nice Carmel coloured, little head when poured. Not a bad beer, a good lead into more hoppier beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6738) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle. Medium brassy gold with a dense white head that recedes to a thin film. Aroma is sweet, with notes of fruits in syrup. Sweet pale malts, slightly bread and earthy, with sweet fruity undertones and a lightly bitter finish. This is a well-made beer to be certain, but it isn’t what I wanted. I like my doppelbocks darker, more toasty.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 24, 2013
1oz sample. Dark brown pour with a tan head that fades fairly slowly. Mild-medium carbonation. Aroma is grassy, hint of german style hop and malt character. Earthy, mild floral notes. Taste is very earthy, grassy leading to a dry, yet balanced finish. Not unexpected but not earning high praise

Strangebrewer (857) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle, Poured clear orange with almost no head. Sweet malt aroma with an orange note. Medium body with a thin creamy texture, slight warming alcohol finish. Caramel malt, sweet, bready with a grassy hop flavour.
