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.

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.

Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- has a yeasty type aroma that is not all that inviting. Appearance- A dark yellow colored beer with a white head. Taste- Very disappointing, has a malt flavor that I do not particularly care for. I am a fan of Maibock style beer but this taste is off the mark for me. Palate - A medium bodied beer with a dry finish with a not-so pleasant aftertaste. Overall - A big disappointment for me. I was hoping for 16Oz of pure enjoyment, instead it was drudgery finishing this beer off.

Poured from bottle into shaker. Translucent yellow-orange with thicker white head. Smells grainy and lager-y (like a basement or something). Taste is also grainy/ lager-y, with some pretty nice light hop flavor in the background. Palate is pleasant. Not my favorite beer, but pretty solid and good for the style.

Sample pour of mild amber gold with white head. Nose is sweetness and mild caramel. Fully malted with little to no hop presence. Light zesty malt with more malt and some caramel notes. Fairly drinkable and enjoyable for the style. I’d do it again.

SPDickerman (1013) - Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Pours hazy orange with a medium off-white head. Smells soft fruit, hints of toffee. Taste is fruity, hints of sweetness, perhaps candy. Medium-bodied with a silky texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Sprecher Mai Bock finishes with a smooth lingering sweetness.

TXBadger (1701) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours a nice amber color with white head. Some floral notes along with some malts too, there’s some other floral note too; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a bit of sweetness.

Aurelius (4524) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Fluffy, ivory head on a clear, ruddy amber brew. I love the Sprecher pint bottles, except they’ve got a twistoff lid. And a bad label. Enticing, biscuits-and-syrup, grainy aroma. Very pleasant and drinkable. Lightly tannic, malty, moderately sweet, a little nutty, a little woody. Vanilla here and there. A cereal-husk bitterness in the finish. Proof Bottle Shop.

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.

very sweet, malt, caramel, hops. taste and smell pretty much the same, but tastes a little sweeter than the smell. Fairly smooth, decent.
