Drank the Grolsch Lentebok out of a 500 ml can. Bought it for 1.49 € at a dutch supermarket. Grolsch Lentebok is a spring bock but is available all year round. Its says 7,0% ABV on the can. This bock is sweetened with sugar. I tasted that sugar and some pleasant citrus flavors that must come from the hops. The aftertaste has a light bitterness. The drinkability is good and I didnt taste the 7% ABV at all.
Good spring bock from the Netherlands!

It smells very refreshing, probably due to the added sugar. This sugar is too dominating in the taste however. It could have been used to balance the typical malty bock flavour, but they've overdone it and now it tastes like malt with sugar on top. A liquid tea biscuit. All in all still a refreshing drink, but it simply lacks "beerness" now.

a Very nice golden colour with a good foamy head.

The smell brings some freshness, lighty citrus elements in it. Some spices as well, not harsh but gently added.

The taste is wonderful, fresh citrus again just as the smell. a Slightly bitterness as aftertaste. Some smooth hints of the true Grolsch beer are there as well. You can taste that you drink another great beer from Grolsch.

Good fresh Lentebok!

Not my favorite variation of this style but not bad. It had a golden color, so-so head and virtually no lace to speak of. It had a strong grain aroma with a hint of citrus. The flavor was malty with some fruit, mainly lemon like tones. The mouthfeel was slick and heavy.

Light amber color, small head that doesn't last too long. Some light carbonation going on the in the glass.

Smell: at first there's not much, but I poured it in a large glass. Later some fruits (orange, peach), some spices that I can't really identify. Old cookies.

Taste: quite light for a 7% beer. Very fresh, light citrus, white bread, a slight grassy note. Later some grainy notes, like chewing fresh barley. After it has set a while more fruit, apples, oranges and a hint of pear. Light alcohol taste. Aftertaste is nice with a light bitter presence with a tiny acidic touch.

Mouth is not that special, very drinkable, light carbonation, coats the mouth a little. Not bad though.

Overall this is fresh, light and drinkable. Nothing really stands out though. And you don't really notice the 7% alcohol, might easily drink a bit too much of this.

Bottle poured into a pils glass, showing a clear and deep golden straw with a light cap of white foam. Moderate retention and light lace follow.

Aroma of light lemony malts/hops though a bit artificial in nature. Touch of bready grain yet with a rather light sweetness for the style.

Taste is smooth and creamy with a bit of lemony bread. Quite light and lacking any caramel notes of your more traditional bock beers.

Decent carbonation. Full and easy yet rather subtle in the flavor and feel; yet not unexpected given the light bock character of the beer.

Overeall an easy quaff with a slightly artificial/pure lemon aroma that is a bit odd but surely not of the 'pledge' variety as aromas go. Thus neither positive or negative per se. A simple and drinkable brew that is in fact a bit radler/juicelike at times.

Bottle of 300 ml.

Deep golden colour with a two finger head, very good retention. Lots of activity in the glass.
Smell of malts and hops, mostly the latter.
Taste is fruity and sweet.
On the body is medium thin and quite carbonated. Leaves you with some dryness on your palate.
