Review: 0,5l Bottle of Eichbaum Maibock: ABV: 7.2%

Has an interesting logo of a big goat, that’s the billy goat representing its name “Ein Bock”

Appearance isn’t the best to be honest. The head does die in seconds and it has a general appearance of a flat beer with no lacing.

Having said that the beer does have a lovely golden colour, and it is a very clear beer with some small carbonation going on.

But head is shit, really no head, it fizzles away quickly, falls flat.

Get a lot in the bottle though.

A nice sweet smell, pleasant on the nose. I got malts, and some caramel, and a bit of a general lager smell. It was nice on the nose.

No standout tastes.

Got a caramel taste, bit bitter sweet in the aftertaste, not much in front end. Very boring beer, dull. Not nice at all. Certainly not a session beer.

Very hoppy and bitter. A struggle to drink.

Can’t feel the alcohol, no kick. Very dry in the mouth

Very dry cardboard. Too hoppy for me, yuck, what a disappointment.

Eichbaum Maibock presents itself with an ample amount of light tan head. The body is ultra clear, and is copperish gold in color.

Very doughy, sweet, and earthy. This is very fragrant, and is about the most fragrant Maibock I've had.

Now for the fun part. The taste is light and malty up front. There is a little hoppiness to offset the sweetness, but the sweetness is dominant. Altogether, this has an apple/toast like flavor to it.

This feels light and wet, but finishes with a nice warming effect. I'm very happy with this brew and highly recommend this.
