Notes/Commercial Description:
Maibock Is Better Than Your Bock is a seasonal brew done in collaboration with Haymarket Brewing released on May 1 to commemorate the Haymarket Riot. This golden-hued lager gets its color and rich malt character from the use of 50% Munich malt. Extended cold maturation smooths out the full-bodied honey like maltiness. German Spalt hops provide a balanced bitterness that delicately lingers in the background.

Had on tap at Revolution. Poured into a 20oz mug club mug with a nice solid gold color to it and a small head.

There is a nice maltiness along with aromas of citrus, wheat, and some oranges. There is decent depth to this and the aromas are well put together.

This has a fuller body to it with a very smooth feel and good notes of citrus, wheat, and malts.

This is a very nice maibock. It's smooth and balanced with a nice finish.

Serving type: on-tap

On-tap at Haymarket. Served in a 5oz taster glass.

A - Looks like the Haymarket version, but with a bit less head volume. More wispy and less solid cap.

S - The Revolution version is a tad sweeter than the Haymarket version, although there's still a hefty dose of toasted grains. Less hops here, and less sharp and twangy.

T - The taste translates as well, with bread and biscuit to it, as well as some mild hop bitterness in the finish. This version has a weird fruity and estery note to it that doesn't entirely jibe well. Thankfully there is no alcohol here, but this still isn't all that great.

M - High carbonation that is verging on harsh. Medium body, sticky finish, and no alcohol warming. This one is a tad sticky in the finish and lingers on the palate.

D - While the Haymarket version was somewhat unexciting, this one is kind of off to boot. I'd skip this and just stick to Revolution's IPAs and stouts.
