Trying to get that Oktoberfest out of my mouth, I crack on a bone-chilling cold Hofbrau Maibock. DAMN I LOVE MAIBOCK. Right now, my four favorite things are in this order: my lovely daughter, maibock, the movie Snatch, and James David Manning youtube videos. Maybe it's just that nobody fricken makes Maibocks these days, it's all Traditional bocks, or dunkel lagers or vienna lagers masqeurading as bocks, any of course the same 4 doppelbocks.
This one has a crisp syrup sweetness, some funk from th hops, and a little stank on it from the green bottle. And I'm loving it. Great syrup/caramel malt, crisp finish, with some bread. I like the way it just cuts right through your palette. 4 stars.
