Beer: Spring Bock
Serving Style: Draft
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Drinking Establishment: Jacob’s Pickle, 84th & Amsterdam
Primary Consumer: Kerensa
Secondary Consumer: Josef, Kat, Lauren, Mary, Sarah
Sight: Near opaque dark brown body with amber tinge. One-inch thick beige head that fizzles down to a centimeter brim.
Scent: Toasted malt. And that’s it.
Flavor: Toasted malt with a slight caramel sweetness, and an unwelcomed ethyl alcohol taste.
Feel: Thin body with a trace of carbonation.
Concluding remarks: Drinkable, I guess. It tastes like drinking liquified malt. So, if you’re in the mood for a straight-up malt beverage, Anchor’s Bock is, well…still not even worthy. As my secondary consumers say, this is just flat and boring. One went as far to say as it tastes only of alcohol and that there was little else to note. We did not finish these.
Despite the goat’s head on the label, do not mistake this as being indicative of the Bock style. It’s not. United States v. Germany FAIL.
