COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

16 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours an amber color with a very slight haze. Medium sized frothy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grainy, toasty malts and stone fruits. The taste is stone fruits, toasted malts, tinny notes and herbal notes. Medium bodied. Decent.

guzzler67 (1521) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Hazy, amber/orange appearance with a large, off white head and decent lacing. Yeasty, sweet, caramel malt aroma with notes of apple and honey. Mild floral hops are dominated by grainy, sweet malts and crisp fruit flavors. Funky, medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.

As smelly as this beer is, it actually has a sweet, slightly malty mouth feel. It has a pale orange color with a frothy white head and an aroma of light caramel malts and lager yeast. In the mouth, it has a slight oxidized flavor, but is predominantly a sweetly-malted lager with an almost creamy body and a dry, almost champagne-like finish. Not bad!

ttoadee (684) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Light orange, quick white head. Malt and soft fruit in the nose. Medium sweet on the tongue. Taste is alcohol, malt, and a hint of citrus. Finishes with a brace of hops. Great with ham and rye with Colemans mustard.

This is a crisp and smooth maibock. Nice aftertaste and rich middle makes this a malty good drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tnkw01 (1176) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle. Aroma was of a watery, fruity, caramel nature. Color was a deep golden with a quickly disappearing head. Flavor was like a flowery candy corn.

vandint (26) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2012
16oz bottle from Whip In. Pours a nice amber, very little head, no lacing (sounds like this is unusual for this beer). Sweet and rich smell. Taste is good for an everyday beer, nothing too remarkable, but cool and refreshing.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Pours a nice copper color with a lot of head. Frothy and foamy. Malty and spicy nose. Very refreshing taste with a sweet malt beginning backed up with adequate hop bitterness. There’s a nice hint of orange peel in the finish and the lacing is good. A badass beer.

degbert (1174) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours a rich, hazy orange-gold with a high, fine-grained head that leaves lace. The nose is toffee, fruit, violets, and toasted grain. Very crisp on the tongue with a bright, almost citrusy acidity; finishes long and clean, with enough hops to keep it honest. Perfect for a cool-off after an evening at a still, humid baseball game.
