A- clear bright yellow
S- Faint grape/ yeasty smell
t- rich hoppy and malty notes- slightly bitter but very balanced, no aftertaste
m- a bit thicker and bubblier than it looks
o- very refreshing, balanced, and tasty beer. Surprised when I saw the alcohol content.

For $3 during Happy Hour At Magnolia's Corner , Portland, Oregon

On draught at Bailey's, Occidental's Maibock is a clear gold with a small white head leaving light foamy lace.

Smells is faintly doughy, a hint of lime.

Taste is light, fairly clean. A little grainy, a touch of vanilla. Some ethanol, fusels. Faintly herbal.

Mouthfeel is light, dry.

Drinkability is okay. It's certainly a light bodied spring bock, but there's not much character here beyond the alcohol. Reminds me of those strong Scandinavian lagers, but presumably cleaner and less hang-over prone (although this 10 oz glass is enough for me).
