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.

Bocks are particular favorite beer. This one is robust, nice nose and a decent hop bite that lingers.

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!

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

24 IBU. Dry, chalky, slightly sweet with nutty, toffee and molasses tones. Clean and almost light tasting.

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

This is one fine beer, It is just one of the many fine brews from Saint Arnold’s! The taste just is delicous, and it has a sweet intoxicating smell. A very pleasing and satisfying beer. GO TX!

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

Good decent head with and amber colored beer. Rich and sweet. Good bock and I might try it colder next time.

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

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
