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.

Had on tap at the Ginger Man in Austin, Tx. Pours an orangeish light copper with a thin, but long lasting off-white head with a fair bit of lacing. Aroma is pretty nondescript - a bit of caramel perhaps, but not very obvious. Flavor has some chocolate notes, cherries, a bit of caramel and some alcohol. Palate is fairly smooth. Nothing to really get excited about, but falrly solid and dependable.

A very light bodied interperetation of the style. But after all it isn’t meant to be an American version of the classic German-style Dopple. Well balanced, with a smooth syrupy start and a brief flash of sweet hoppiness in the finish.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2005 A little on the light side, but drinkable. A slight malty sweetness hides in the background and makes funny noises, but it never makes a spectacle. Shame. Not bad, though. Coulda used a little more hops bite to go with what little malt there was, but it was not to be. Maybe next year.

Well, hmmm. Can’t think of much great to say about this one. Dark. foamy head. Smells like a really thin bock. This beer lacks most bock characterisitcs. It is sweet, like a bock, but not malty sweet, just sweet. Fly is right. Hop presence isn’t in your face but not really present at all. It is thin, not like a bock. and I didn’t really enjoy it. grat

This was interesting. In St. Arnold fashion, their beers maintain a consistency I have not seen in most brewers. All their beers have a very distinct flavor, and this is no different. If you need a mental pictures, Spring Bock is like a black and tan, but instead it is a ST Arny Amber and a Shiner Bock. It is flavorful and refreshing, although not totally unique. Still, it is a good brew for pre summer festivities

Can't get excited about this. Sweet, but not in a rich malty way. Maybe not corn, but nothing special. I keep hoping that this brewery will produce a beer that I can love.Has yet to happen. So so.

Yummy Spring seasonal. Great caramel, malty nose. Head disapates fast. Flavors of roasted caramel, and toasty malt. A bit thin but still yummy..

Good aroma. Sweet flowery flavor great for a spring afternoon. Appearance is nothing special.

Bottled. Copper coloured.Sweet and intensely malty. with soft mouthfeel. Flowery bitter finish. Saint Arnold keeps impressing with theit malt profile!

Ok...but not great. I'm not too impessed, but not quite as watery as some of their other stuff. Very bland, but drinkable.
