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.

Poured a slightly hazy golden amber with a tall creamy off-white head that had good retention. There were lots of carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. A nice fragrant aroma predominately yeasty with some floral tangerine, caramel and toffee. The beer had a good body and good carbonation There was a good malty caramel sweetness with a hint of a hops bitterness initially. The fruity hops flavor and bitterness built in the middle. The fruity flavor faded towards the finish, but the hops bite lingered well into the finish that was more like the traditional lager crisp finish.

Couldn’t pass up a case of the 16oz bottles on sale at my favorite distributor for $20 even - steal of a deal. Pours a clear light brown with slight offwhite head. Aroma very malty with a lot of that cherry medicinal aroma I always associated with mai bocks. Flavor is relatively light and a bit watery, dark cherry notes are more subdued with a tad bit of yeastiness and a slight boozy warm finish. Overall, not a ton of depth, but a very drinkable maibock.

12oz bottle. Poured a clear coppper color with a solid white lasting head. Aroma is caramel malt and floral hops, with just a touch of lemon zest. Taste is a nicely balanced with bready malt and bittering hops that impart a floral character. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

guzzler67 (1597) - 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.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2012
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 (1072) - 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

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.
