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.

Central Market bottle. From my experience with maibocks (which is not much) this seemed pretty true to form. They always seem to be a little alcohol forward; this one included. Good but this is not really my style.

Beerenberger (1454) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2013
A malt forward aroma. Some caramel also noted. Pours a clear amber with a rapidly dissipating off-white head and minimal lacing. The taste is lightly sweet. Strong malt flavors combined with bread, caramel, and a touch of grain in the finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Almost a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, I liked it. While slightly sweet it was subtle and not cloy at all. It went well with lunch - rice, corn, and black beans. Yumm

from notes: poured amber with a small white head that disspated really quickly. the smell consisted of some citrus, alcohol, and hops. The taste i didn’t care for, mostly alcohol and hop bitterness.

Clean light amber/orange hue, thin white head. Roasted malt in the nose. Sweet...really sweet. Carmel in the middle, slightly oily. Faint hop presense at finish.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 18, 2013
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation transparent light brown colored body and a fair lacing. The almost non-existent aroma was malty and sweet. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of sweet dough caramel breads and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

no bock can even come close to this, probably houston’s best mass distributed seasonal.

kramer (5005) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded almost immediately to a very thin ring. The nose is thickly malty with a nice light-caramel sweetness. There’s a touch of alcohol coming thru as well. Smells well-lagered, no fruitiness at all, very clean. The flavor is pretty sweet, a little lacking in hops to balance things out, but again, pretty clean. Finishes with a little grainy and cereal notes and a slight alcohol hotness. A little chewy and thick with a bit too much carbonation. Pretty nice, on par with most of the offerings from these guys.

On tap at several places in Houston. Pours amber with white head. Some light citrus and sweetness. Light mouth feel. Bready biscuity finish with no real bitterness to speak of. Fairly easy to drink, and at 6.4%, a tall one from draft will sneak up on you. Decent, but far from spectacular. It beats the usual macro offerings at most places.
