    Sure, I'll add a Bock.

    My local in Houston, Saint Arnold Spring Bock this afternoon...yeah I know seasonal creep is getting bad. I won't ever turn down a beer a like though, just cause it is slightly out of season, especially since it is supper fresh right now, ha. Toasted malts, and baked bread, lightly sweet toffee, herbal hops. Ultra smooth, and ridiculously easy to drink. Not the most "complex" Bock ever, but hits all the high notes for me. And, well, it is basically spring around here anyway...at least the spring I grew up with in central Illinois. Which is lower 60's, lots of sun. Yeah, that will work while enjoying a a great afternoon in my courtyard reading.

    The Leine’s web site says Toasted Bock available October to December. I have not seen it in the wild for 12 months. Anyone know what’s up?

    I had a maibock and a coffee dopplebock yesterday at a brewery that's still in its first year of operation. Both beers were barely average until I got some astringency in the aftertaste of the maibock. I had to mark it down in my rating. Better experience will come with other bocks that I'll drink in 2024.

    Thanks @GreenBayBA for getting this thread going. :beers:

    Too bad, I would've bought some if it was a stand alone.

    What did you think? I still think it's a pretty good Doppel -- even better at its price point.

    I grab a single every year, and I'm always surprised by how much I like it. I know you're a fan of that product line in general. I usually don't click with them, but I tend to like their strong offerings more.

    Even though the "line" seems to be down to 2 beers and, maybe, one seasonal anymore. :confused:

    I guess they just weren't selling.
