A nice Texas-brewed Maibock/Helles Bock. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a fizzy head that fades fairly fast. Smells of toasted malts, light spicy Noble hops, and a little lemon peel. More spicy hop on the tongue with a light malt backbone. Slightly bitter aftertaste. 7.5% alcohol content is well hidden. I wish it were a little sweeter since the Maibock is supposed to be a paler version of the traditional Bock. Still a great beer though.
