Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a tulip glass.
Deep gold color with brilliant clarity. Fluffy white head faded fairly quickly, but left a dense ring at the edge of the glass that lasted to the end.
Sweet grainy malt aroma. Very light spicy hop aroma, and subdued but evident alcohol.
The flavor starts malty sweet, then a spicy but moderate bitterness kicks in. Malt character is complex, but not overwhelming. The bitterness balances the malt nicely. Alcohol dries out the finish, and is a little too intense for the style.
This beer has a medium full body, but the dry finish makes it very drinkable. Overall a well-balanced, highly drinkable Maibock.
