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.

Bottle. Amber with no head. Nose is sweet and caramel like. Taste, in one word, is "husky". Reminds me of the way barn floors smell. Not always a bad thing. Other flavors are roasted malts, smoke, caramel, lots of crystal. Not too shabby, but I wouldn’t drink it everyday.

pours a dark light brown. minimal head that doesn’t stay around. doughy caramel malt aroma that is a bit woody, like mesquite chips but more mellow.light brown sugar and sherry in the first taste. smooth at first, but with some bite at the end, i guess thats the alcohol coming through. something that reminds me of biting into a popsicle stick after the popsicle was good, the sweetness is still there, but there is a woody bitterness. not a bad beer, i will not have a problem finishing the six pack.

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Pickly chocolate aroma. Super fruity and sweet. Very little bittering -- woody bitter what’s there. This was just a chore to try to drink. Doughy, parched malt, like a storng oktoberfest that lost it’s way. Abv pushes to the front. Didn’t finish it.

3fourths (8788) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Draft at Dog & Duck, Austin. Medium light brown color, like a dark amber ale. Nice festive Marzen-like aroma with maple and oak notes. Buttery flavor, like an infection but different, rather a fresh butter and cream flavor. Ultimately disappointing, though I was impressed with the smooth cream-ale qualities it had.

Light malty sweet aroma - somewhat faint. Nice copper color, short head, little to no lacing. Taste is sweet malts - sugary - mildly hoppy at the back of the tongue, then sweet again in the finish. Body is fizzy and could be thicker. Thanks fly.

Thanks to TChrome for this. Pours deep copper (not ruby) with smallish white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, candi sugar. Tastes malty, with some hops, floral esters, nuts, cognac, and light fruit at the finish. Dry finish, and medium palate. Very good. I love maibocks, and this is my first of 2005. Let the good times (and the good maibocks) roll!

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2005
Pours very pale amber color with a slowly dissipating off white head. Aroma is a bit on the simplistic style, being almost entirely sweet malt and caramel. Flavor is easy going a bit overly sweet caramel malt. Mouthfeel is underwhelming. Needs improvement.

PorterPounder (6520) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2005
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.
