3.69/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours copper with a pinky of cream colored head. Slightly better than average head retention & lacing

S: Breadyness, malt sweetness, pears & leafy hops

T: Breadyness, dryness, pears, biscuitty malt up front, some mineral & herbal hop bitterness up front. More biscuitty malt, pears & grassy hops as this warms, plus dryness, Finishes dry & grassy

MF: Chewy, low carbonation, nicely balanced

A nice bock, not great. I'm not in love with all the biscuitty malt, but drinks easy enough

This may be the same as the Maibock, but based on the descriptors used that review I made a judgment call...

Nearly a perfect representation of a bock. Maltiness like this is rare in a beer.
They claim to perform a decoction and I believe them after tasting.
Low carbonation and hops presence brings the malty Munich grain right up in my face.
Love it!
