It's the end of May and I may be finishing the last of this year's production, but this particular bottle of Capital's Maibock still satisfies. The malt and the lingering hops and yeastiness still make for a worthy treat. Maybe I'll catch one of these earlier next year. (Excuse me, while I finish 'er off....)

This really is a nice, malty spring beer with a small alcohol kick to it. Perfect after coming out of this last Winter. A slight grainy smell, not overly impressive. Creamy and carbonated, and a sweet finish? I do just also get a hint of the hops on this one. All-in-all a recommended spring seasonal beer.

Pours a nice, soft, fizzy head that is surprisingly persistent. Sweet malt behind floral hops. Brilliant dark gold hue. A nice sweet malt (reminiscent of alcohol's sweetness) with floral hop bitterness which peaks to a low-medium bitterness. Then it cascades down with a MONUMENTAL malt finish with floral hops peaking through as it goes.

I LOVE this bier! Perfectly balanced. A Maibock to compete with the best of Germany. Nice, medium hops balanced off STUNNING maltiness. The way these two elements play amongst each other is just wonderful to experience on your tongue.
I eagerly await the coming of Maibock season just for this one (And Lakefront's "Big Easy").
