COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cuckoo Bock, Otter Creek’s seventh stop on the "OTTER CREEK WORLD TOUR" is inspired by the German Mai Bocks.

This time the Otter is back in Germany, with a traditional German beer, Mai Bock. Brewmaster Steve Parkes procured Vienna malt, pilsener malt, two types of Munich malts, and hops and yeast all the way from Germany, in an effort to make this beer as authentic as possible. The Otter Creek version will be light and slightly sweet, with a fresh aroma. Don’t let this fool you, however. Mai Bocks are strong beers and this one won’t be any different. As it says on the label- "Now you can have your own German Mai Fest- prosit!"

halfonit (1176) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Clear amber color. Aroma consists malt, with honey, hops, and a little citrus in the undertones. Taste is mostly of malts. There are a little bit of hops and citrus in the back end. Has a nice and smooth aftertaste. Not too bad of a brew. I’d consider this more of a session beer.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Hazy orange, foamy white head fades. Aroma is honey, strawberry and other sweet berries. Taste is honey and berries again with some roast. Pretty sweet, wouldn’t drink a ton but not bad.

Butters (3811) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Bomber from Barrios’ Massechussetts Trip Tasting. Sweet honey aroma and flavor. Good for the style, but I just don’t like this style I think.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Golden-amber. Malty-caramel nose with notes reminiscent of glossette raisins. Caramel taste, some bready notes. Hop dryness towards the finish. Thin body. Lacks focus.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Bright golden copper with slight haze. Good white head that lasts. Rusty, chalky. Some fruit, some sweet cereal. Oily mouthfeel. Sweet metallic. Sulfuric, strange and strong. Not bad, not good.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 4, 2008
Bottle 650 ml
Appearance: Slightly hazed amber bock with bright white , off-creamy head. 3+
Nose: Mineral hop feel with off fruity malts . Stylistically ok but felt a bit empty an generic.
Flavor/Palate : Medium light bodied. A bit shallow with its malt character. Slight bitter hop accents. Closer to Polish Mocne than to German bocks.
