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.

beechner224 (405) - 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 (1507) - 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 (460) - 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 (1907) - 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

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Location: Draft at Ginger Man - Houston, 2/11/14

Aroma: The aroma is toffee, caramel, and bread, with a little bit of a floral/grassy hop
Appearance: This one pours a clear amber-orange, with a frothy beige head and good lace
Flavor: The taste is rich and malty with a light hop backbone to it
Palate: The body is medium, with average carbonation, and a light dry finish
Overall Impression: First spring beer of the (way before) season! It’s 35 in Houston today for heaven’s sake, drinking a spring beer just seems wrong. Anyway, I thought this was a pretty flavorful example of the style. It isn’t an amazing beer, but it isn’t half bad either.

Ratman197 (9030) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel, brown sugar and a hint of fruittiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, brown sugar and light earthiness with a smooth lingering carmel finish.
