COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Spring Imp is brewed for the season when the monks in Munich would traditionally release them. It is a medium bodied Bockbier brewed to 7% alc which has more malt character than our permanent Hellesbock. Brewed with German malt, hops, yeast, the only Canadian ingredient is the water! These strong lager beers are rich in flavour as well as history and will put a twinkle in your eye! Prost!

brewtant (7) - - APR 16, 2013 does not count
Pours a clear orange with a bright white head that is quite rocky but dissipates quickly.
Smell is of honey, caramel, sweet bread, and a dose of grassy and floral hops.

The taste generally follows the nose being malt forward and too heavy on caramel malts for my taste. Sweet caramel and honey notes lead way to a subdued floral bitterness from the hops.
Mouthfeel is a bit chewy and sticky along with a touch of alcohol bite.

lukin (671) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2013
bottle. Pours golden, small white head. Aroma of fruity and cereal malts. Taste is syrupy and sweet, bit of a funky aftertaste. Disappointing.

JoeMcPhee (9577) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2013
Pale golden pour with a thin, fast fading white head. The aroma is quite fusel-laden with distinct notes of apple and fruit. Quite sweet with a distinctly alcoholic/peppery note. Slightly warming and a little bit chewy. Not really my bag.

Bottle 355ml.
Pours dar golden/amber with low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of fruits, malt, yeast. Taste is of nuts, fruits, malt. Palate: ligth body. Overall: Good, interesting fruits.

reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 5, 2013
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that settles quite quickly leaving only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with some cereal grains and caramel. Taste is malty sweet with a harsh bitterness in the finish which is also quite dry. Definitely not one of Mill Street’s best brews. Not recommended.

2.3
czar (9487) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
pours unclear dark golden with a small off-white cap, no retention. toasted breadiness, phenols and garbagy-sulfur notes, some sweetness and lager fruitiness, very hint of spices and wood. soft carbonation, medium body, nice grassy-spicy finish. very disappointing overall - DP.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
Copper colour with a thin white lace. Sweet flavor witha syrup texture. Nasty finish ,not too pleasant.

Preface, not a bock fan. However this is a good light tasting bock. I get a light alcohol flavor, which actually helps the taste. A very well filtered amber beer, with decent carbonation. I get lots of toasted bread. A decent bock. One I would drink again. Comes in their Spring Mix Pack, so support a good small brewery.

patricks110 (2709) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2013
Nice grainy bock with grassy and cereal grain undertones. Mild bready malts, caramel and toasted bread as well as vegetal grassy hops. Smooth silky mouthfeel and a bit of boozy warmth. Overall, rather nice.

3.3
Metalchopz (3583) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Comes in a 6-pack of their 2013 Spring Sampler (3 of these, and 3 of the Spring Thaw). Pours a clean golden-amber colour with a creamy-foam off-white cap that has decent retention and somewhat streaky lace. Big malty aromas of cereal, darker grains, with some light alcohol. Silky smooth mouthfeel with just a little warming from the alcohol. The taste is a little milder than the nose, but still has some character, with bread, malts, caramel and the hop adding a little grass (and peas) to it.
