COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An authentic, German-style Bock, celebrating the coming of spring. This strong, deeply flavored lager has been aged to create a smooth, malty taste with a hint of sweetness. A light addition of German hops balances the malt flavor. Saint Arnold Spring Bock is best consumed at 40° Fahrenheit.

Cloudy orange/amber with a small white head. Light malt aroma. The flavor is lightly sweet. Could really use more malt depth in the flavor to be a real top notch Bock, but certainly a drinkable beer. Thanks to crajun for this one!

Pours a clear amber color with white head. Cereal grain, caramel malt, and some light hops on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet.

Sdaniel90 (283) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. Pours clear copper with a modest offwhite head. Aroma is of dry fruits, caramel, roasted malt and perhaps some slight sourness. Medium body and carbonation. Rich and warming finish, though not very bitter, instead focusing on the roasted character.

Percy0103 (68) - MEXICO - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. A dark orange beer with a head that fades away almost immediatly. It has a medium aroma and I’ve been told this is how a bock is supposed to smell. Taste is bitter and it has a medium alcohol finish. Maybe at the end is also a little bit watery.

Bottle - Brownish pour. Nose of malt, lager yeast, and a small hint of brown sugar. Taste has that nice malty presence with the crisp lager finish. Good representative of the style in that its not over the top and an easy drinker.

beechner224 (615) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark amber, small white head. Aroma of yeasty, small malt, maybe even corn. Taste is malty, sweet, better than the aroma. Maybe even a tad of smoke. ok.

weihenweizen (1608) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, from BMart, poured into a snifter. Pours clear copper with small off-white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is caramel malt, medium body, low carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is caramel malt with balancing hops. Easy to drink for a bock, pretty dark for a heller.

Pershing (475) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Clear copper with a quickly dissolving head. Minimal amount of visual carbonation. Moderate malt aroma. Medium body with an excellent hop malt balance. Nice lingering finish of wanting more. An excellent Bock.

Erzengel (2338) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2014
Copper brown in the glass, the beer starts malty and slightly sweet. Highly drinkable. The mainpart is nice malty-sweet with hints of bitterness without beeing to sweet-sticky. Dark fruit, a bit viscous and still highly drinkable. Not really a Heller Bock - the taste is more like a Dunkler Bock. The aftertaste is long, smooth, malty-crisp and dry with hints of sweetness, molasses, plums. Nice!
A very nice and good Bockbier! --> 13/12/13/13
