A dark yellow pour with almost no aroma. This doesn’t resemble a bock at all. Its more like a light ale. Some hop presence at the finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at the Blue Heron Brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden orange colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing and minimal ring. Aroma of medicinal hops, caramel malt and a touch of white pepper. Taste is almost different than the aroma. Medium bodied, with sweet fruity malt, with dry bitter grassy hops and a touch of autumn leaves. Finish is semi-dry, medicinal, with a lingering dry bitterness that over-powers the maibock profile. One of the driest maibocks I’ve tried. It’s different.
