That warm spring sun has finally melted the last of the heavy winter snowpack, leaving the ground soggy and soft, and as you gun the accelerator of your ‘69 Dodge Charger, you can feel the rear end slowly sinking as you barrage your mother-in-law standing nearby with a hail of mud.  Well, there’s no use trying to redeem yourself with empty apologies, so you can atone this misdeed by offering her a frothy pint of this delicious spring ale. For who can browbeat you when they’re holding a glass of this rich, smooth spring bock?  Though her face may be splattered with mud, she’ll appreciate this brew’s brown tones and its lovely garnet highlights that are the mere facade for the rich mouthful of toasty malts and pleasant caramel which are elegantly balanced with hops.  And don’t forget, at 6.7% alcohol, this brew will quickly anesthetize her hand that’s reaching for the rolling pin.  But when you hand her this pint, be sure to smile and say, “Here’s mud in your eye!”
