“I am not a huge fan of maibock, but I enjoyed this beer.”
Dead Guy Ale: 3 out of 5
Visually, this might be my favorite beer since starting this blog. The bottle is pure rock and roll. Simple, striking, and badass. The color of the beer itself is gorgeous as well. It has a rich and saturated golden, reddish, amber gradient like hue to it.
As it is implied in the quote, I am not very experienced with maibock beer, but I did enjoy it. If you are like me this beer may be a good place to start if you want to broaden your horizons. However, if you are looking for a more insightful perspective here is what the World Beer Championship Judges said about it.
“Deep reddish amber hue. Generous toasty malt aromas and earthy hops follow through on a moderately full-bodied palate with fruity accents and a long spicy hop finish. A delicious hybrid style with bock-like maltiness but ale-like hopping.”
