Gold Award Winner! 2012 World Beer Cup
This quaint looking beer is very strong! Consider yourself warned. Yes, this German style bock is golden and bright, not dark. Mai means May and well, Bock means goat, but that’s another story. May means Spring and after a long winter of drinking dark beers, Germans were ready for a bright golden beer to celebrate spring. And that’s where babies come from. ABV at some point from 6.3% to 7.5%.

Pours to a off yellow almost gold smells earthy with hints of a sweet cider. Taste of apples and carries a tang along with it. Aftertaste is super smooth with a nice finish

First time out. It’s a heavy beer that doesn’t look like a heavy beer or taste like one.
