Crystal clear. Burnt orange in color against my wall, but golden against my computer screen.3 finger off white head that becomes chunky as it recedes leaving copious lacing.
Fruity, grassy hops. Apricot and light ripe citrus. Toasty malt.
Sweet malt. Tart and bitter hops. Toast. Bitterness dominates in the end.
Light pepper, slightly syrupy but not sticky, burn of alcohol in the throat.
A decent spring brew, if a bit subdued. Still, it's an easy drinker, and perhaps almost sessionable.

This was a recent acquisition from the Friendly Greek Bottle Shop and since a picture exists and Maibocks seem to be on the menu this morning, this seems like a good time to get the review done and the bottle emptied. Wake up, Maggie Maibock, I got a glass to use for you!
From the bottle: "Heller Bock Lager Matt Nucci Brewdad"; "Part of the PROGENY SERIES from Blue Mountain Brewery".
Once more, the contrasting colors made the pseudo-cascade a sight to behold! Man, I could do this all day. My efforts resulted in three fingers of dense, eggshell-white head with lasting retention. Once again, the color was a deep, golden-yellow (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity and I could see into the future, where I was back at the Greek, drinking beer. In the interim, since they had never left, the Unholy Trio of Mammon, Midas and Croesus were battling for a taste. Once more, the nose had that terrific combination of biscuit malts and grassy Noble hops and now, my mouth was watering. Either my overdosing with AIPAs has left me craving something else, or that AIPA obsession is wrong-headed and I should be branching out more often. Guess what? I am sticking with my AIPAs, but I can appreciate a well-made beer in another style. Great lacing began to appear in the glass as I typed and now I was ready! Mouthfeel was full, more towards creamy then the Troegs Maibock and the sweetness was a little more pronounced ("Statistics [:] 22 IBUs 16.2 Plato"), more honey-like than bready and still with some fusel alcohol heat. I felt compelled to break out the pretzels at this point and they really went well with this beer. Finish was bone-dry and I was coming to realize that I prefer it this way. I am not into sweets as a usual thing anyway and the dryness really allows for a clean finish with a definitive grassy aftertaste.

Bought a growler fill this weekend. Great color, good aroma. Saw it in bottle in the grocery store yesterday. Perfect choice for this time of year. Planning on going back soon for the full menu at the Barrel House Brewery. This is a great area to be a beer lover.

12oz bottle obtained from the brewpub for me by coworker. Thanks Steve!
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" off-white head over the clear golden amber brew. Head falls to a thin layer of bubbles, with leggy fleeting lace. Aroma is minimal.
Taste starts sweet, which lingers a bit longer like a maibock should, peek of fruit in the middle, balancing bitterness at the close. Mouthfeel is very soft and smooth, and drinkability is way easy. Liking this one.

First had: on tap at Blue Mountain, Afton, VA
Clear darker amber pour, with a large, frothy, white head that receded to a wispy layer, lacing the glass as it descended. Light aroma, dry malts, essence of fruity esters, grassy/herbal hops. Taste of bready caramel malts and probably some Vienna?, light, clean notes of stone fruit, herbal hops. Pretty basic stuff, but good nonetheless. Light-medium body and drinkable for the style.
Serving type: on-tap
