Saint Arnold, The only saint this Atheist can appreciate. ;-)

This one pours a very nice amber color that is slightly cloudy with a nice rick creamy head that is slightly tan and settles slowly leaving subtle lacing down the glass.

The nose is pleasant hops with traces of allspice, nutmeg and caramel with a floral hop undertone.

The flavors are very complex with the hops just barely dominating the malt. The beer is bitter and fruity at the same time without the flavors battling it out. This one is really well balanced and is very good and enjoyable. There are hints of fresh bread, bitter hops, alcohol and a sweet cacophony of flavors like butter, nutmeg, pine, Crème Brule and mmm, mmm good.

Overall I really like this spring bock because it is such a complex flavored beer with a rather high alcohol content in which the alcohol does not dominate. The boys and gals at Saint Arnolds have a great beer here and I tip my virtual hat to them.
