look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a growler obtained last week into an imperial pint glass. Very small head turns into a collar. No lacing left.

Strange sort of rubber aroma wafts from the top of the glass into my nose. Earthy tones. Not much hop aroma. Not much else.

Taste is average. Nice hop bitterness. The hops come out pretty strong in the taste of this one.

Clean and crisp. Medium body. A nice beer. Maibock is a unique style that I really enjoy. This one is pretty good compared to others I have had but certainly not the best.

Nice to drink a good Mai Bock because they are so hard to find,poured a deep bronze with a small but swell sustained white head.Big alcoholic aromas with a apple cider touch,tangy and fruity.This is a true Mai bock by all sences malty fruit steeped in alcohol,sweet but not overly so very smooth going down.A spring bock on the sweeter side but the alcohol warmth comes in handy in nights like tonight in downtown W-S enjoyable and true to form.
