Notes/Commercial Description:
Discombobulator is a German Maibock lager brewed for the month of ”Mai”. Bocks are strong beers and traditionally have names ending in “-ator”. Our Discombobulator Maibock is a “helles” or light-colored bock. Always a crowd-pleaser in the brewpub but you have to be here in May to experience the phenomenon that is Discombobulator! Discombobulator is a signature beer of Will Gilson.

Low intensity grainy aroma with some mild malt sweetness. Orange tinted golden body with a diminishing thumb thick head. Very lager looking. Fairly spicy fore is also packed with earthy malts, perfumey clove like flavors and a hint of stiffer spice in the finish. Taste delivers much more than aroma. Not a bad little bock really and handles the 7.1% abv (7.1% not 8.3% is the info I have) quite nicely.

Best by Sept '07:

Pours bright copper with a thin white head.

The aroma of fresh grain carries nicely into the taste. Sweetness balanced by continental-type hops. Touch of peppery alcohol in the finish, though well-covered by the flavor. Medium-bodied with just a touch of rawness on the palate. Falvors carry through the aftertaste fairly well.

A nice maibock overall.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for bringing this back from his trip out West!
