330ml bottle, day 12 of the 2015 Craft Crossing Calendar, a 'collaborative' effort once again between Parallel 49 and Central City brewing. A Maibock in December, and at 5% ABV? Something seems wrong here.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium copper amber colour, with one finger of weakly puffy, loosely foamy, and mostly just bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some low-lying iceberg profile lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of semi-sweet, grainy and doughy pale malt, a not so subtle measure of almond paste, muddled light orchard fruit, a bit of further earthy nuttiness, and some plain leafy, herbal, and grassy hop bitters. The taste is bready, kind of cereal-forward pale malt, more nutty marzipan sweetness, browned apples and pears, a hint of gasohol, and more earthy, weedy, and grassy noble hoppiness.

The bubbles are quite active in their supportive and somewhat frolicking frothiness, the body a sturdy middleweight, and generally smooth, just a wee sense of internal warmth taking the sheen off of things. It finishes well off-dry, that almond butter-tinted maltiness hard to shake, not that I'm particularly keen on doing so.

Well, colour me repentant - it looks like Central City has found a way to make a Maibock seem Yuletide-friendly, at least to this paisan who grew up with his Mom's Italian-influenced Christmas baking. Yup, this is the beer version of those almond butter cookies she always made, and so thoughts of springtime can thus be put back into the depths of future time, or wherever they belong right now.
