Reviewed at the AHA Banquet at the Rock Bottom Chicago.

(Brewed with a 100% Simpsons Malt)

Nice bright gold beer with a fair haze. The head is low and very white and sticky, coating and clinging to the glass.

Aroma is light and grainy with a perfume wafting off the glass of waxed heavy hot house flowers.

The initial flavor is of honey and grainy malt with a thick viscous feel on the fore palate. Floral and spicy continential hops rise up in the mid palate to cut the grainy sweetness.

The overall impression is of a smooth drinkable beer with a good dose of alcohol.

Goat Toppler Mai Bock: on tap at the Chicago location. Golden color, with slight haze. Not much head on the pint, but terrific thick lacing. Muted, not very strong aroma, but it was difficult to detect in the bar.

Really terrific taste, as good a mai-bock as I’ve ever had. Very notable hops flavors, in fact much more so than would be considered appropriate for the style, but if you don’t care, I sure as hell don’t. Malts are present, at least initially, but they are smoothly replaced by floral hops notes rolling through and cleaning up at the end. I was particularly impressed with smooth and creamy mouthfeel and the fact that this nicely complemented the flavors, making it seem very well balanced for a beer as hoppy as this one was.. Very nice and flavorful.
