3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Clear orange-amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of sweet bread, caramel, and light grassy hops. Taste is malty and somewhat sweet with a mild grassy flavor that I wouldn’t quite call bitterness. Light-medium body, slightly creamy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a dark copper, transparent, with a yellowish white head. The nose has hints of brown malt, loads of caramel, rather buttery caramel/toffee with a hint of grain underneath. The taste is much of the same but sweeter, buttery caramel and toffee cascade over the tongue as a fruity malt sweetness plays in back. The grain sits faintly underneath. The body is super creamy and lush, lighter carbonation but the body is actually rather airy itself.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was a hard beer to pin down. Saint Arnold Spring Bock has a thick, creamy, cream-colored head and a bubbly, clear, amber appearance. The aroma is a bit unusual with sweetness, syrup, stinging something, and a dough smell of some sort. Taste is likewise odd, with unsalted cracker, medium-roasted barley malt, bitterness, and lots of alcohol forward in the flavor. Mouthfeel is medium, and Saint Arnold Spring Bock finishes pretty crisp, dry, and refreshing. Even though it’s a weird beer, with slight ale body characteristics, I really am enjoying it, and I suggest you try it. RJT

Excellent seasonal that always seems too short lived. Strong taste with playful hops and a decent finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear dark copper with a decent sized off white head that fades to a ring. Leaves good lacing. Aroma is malt and a hint of lemon. Taste is caramel, malt, and a really nice hit of bitterness up front. Pretty full body. Good beer.

Dark color, malty aroma, great seasonal. A little heavier than most St. Arnold beers.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a great bock beer, one of my favorite bocks. The appearance is red with a hazy white head. The taste is malty goodness with just the right amount of citrus hops. It was smooth and a good drink to have after a long day of work. this pairs well with chicken, especially chicken wings!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brew poured up a light reddish-brown with a one-finger thick head that dissipated rather quickly and left minute lacing. Roasted malts, floral hops, light chocolaty-spicy notes up front with a bright hoppy finish. Medium bodied that finishes clean with no bitter aftertaste. A great brew to enjoy in the spring as well as throughout the year.
