SPRING - Pale malty flavors are balanced with a rich hop flavor and a light fruit bouquet in this tradtitional spring-time lager. Extended aging and traditional dry-hopping give this potent, blonde bock a distinctive flowery aroma.

Clear medium amber. Medium creamy white head. Aroma is mainly malty, caramel, some toastiness, some light citrus. Sweet. Flavor much the same; sweet, malty, lightly hoppy. Somewhat hopped dry finish. Medium soft body. Definitely one of Sprecher’s better beers.

Poured from a 16 oz bottle. Nice copper color with a good white bread that reduces to an ample cap. Great malt taste with a bit of citrus. Great example of the style. A good purchase and a perfect beer for the day.

onceblind (6378) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Clear light copper with a foamy/rocky white head. Aroma is toasty and biscuity with just a little dash of clove honey, and maybe some lavendar. Flavor lacks a little something something, bringing mostly lager-like biscuityness and honeyed toast. Nice finish though, clean and lingering with a little sweetness and floral lavendar.

Shag (2738) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2013
This poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus, caramel, and candy sugars. The flavor is both sweet and bitter with some citrus showing up along with caramel and a bit of molasses and buscuit.. This seems to be spot on for the style and went well with my spicy bratwurst. Overall good beer.

superspak (3968) - Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2013
16 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 1/26/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of carbonation streaming up retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, apple, pear, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, light pepper, and herbal earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, pear, apple, pepper, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, and herbal earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, pepper, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance with good complexity; good amount of robustness; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with nearly zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice maibock! Very nice balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering; and great example of the style.
