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.

Poured a slightly hazy amber color with a thin white head. Aroma has lots of honey and apples with some pale malts. Taste has lots of honey as well. Some syrupy flavors with grains and malts. Maybe a little too sweet but quite flavorful.

Pours a pretty golden color. Smell is of biscuts and malts. Taste is also malty, some biscuts, light hops. Overall an enjoyable beer.

Nice subtle caramel and flowery aroma. Amber, clear color with a nice tight head. Nice lace. Taste is sweet and creamy, with a soft finish. I love this beer. Best served on tap (at my house every Spring).

BVery (6096) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Bottle. Clear reddish amber pour witha nice fluffy white head. Aroma is floral, sweet honey, and malty. Medium to light palate. Taste is very malty with sweet sugars. Probably pretty good for its style, but this just isn’t a style I gravitate to.

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle. Amber with a nice soft foam head. Biscuity honey malt scent with some hops. Big body and flavour. Strong malt with a heavy dark candy edge.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Sammy (8552) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle from Southland Beverage. Aged over the winter by the brewer, time to try it. Pours a deep golden colour, with a generous retained head. Somewhat of a funky and malty aroma. Big carbonation, hops, funkiness, and spice. A palate number. Not what I expected based n my limited exposure to this style, but good drinkability. Perceived IBU is not high here.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle courtesy of BeerFMAndy. Served in a tulip. Pours a very clear dark golden color with a very thin white head that dissipates quickly with only a spot or two of lacing. Thin collar throughout. The nose carries a bit of light bready malt plus a touch of floral hops. The flavor is slightly sweet with a lot of bread and mild grain. Slight floral hops, leading to a moderate bitterness in the finish. A bit of a nutty character in the flavor as well. Medium body with moderate carbonation; fairly smooth. Good beer.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAY 15, 2011
16oz bottle. Big granny smith apple juice aroma. Sweet and worty flavor with lots of green apple. Deep gold with a decent white head. Big acetaldehyde presence that needs to go away for this to be a good lager.
