Beer Review – Lancaster Brewing Rumspringa

In search of the Duchesse De Bourgogne Flemish Red Ale, I stopped at the Roger Wilco at Eagle Plaza. While I did find the Duchesse and the Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour, I picked up a couple of cans to fill out the beer fridge. One of the selections was the Rumspringa Golden Bock from Lancaster Brewing. I had had the Kölsch and the Milk Stout and looked forward to another of their lineup.

Here is what Lancaster Brewing has to say about its Rumspringa:

Embrace your slightly rebellious side with our feisty Golden Bock Lager brewed with real Lancaster County honey. It delivers subtle malt flavors flawlessly balanced by a blend of domestic and European hops.

I found the Rumspringa to be…

  • Appearance: Amber with light foam and good lacing.
  • Aroma: Sweet malt with hints of citrus, fruit and honey.
  • Taste: Sweet malt with honey and hops and a floral finish.
  • ABV: 6.9%

I shared a couple of cans with the Wookie and G-LO (while the Mrs. G-LO and my better half split a Monk’s Flemish). While the Wookie offered his typical comment of “dreadful”, G-LO and I found that the Rumspringa was an okay beer. Crisp, refreshing, maybe a little out of balance but still a good beer.

    • I like their Kolsch. Had it last summer at their Brewpub. A lovely summer beer. Pity the Brewpub kinda sucked. While I like the industrial look of the place, the food was mediocre at best and the service was ho-hum.


  1. Interesting beer title, and high alcohol content. l like that. I remember my own rumspringa. It was the first and last time I tried crystal meth. Definitely a learning experience.
