Bottled at Café Abseits, Bamberg, Bavaria. Clody golden, dense creamy head. Buttery malt aroma. Sweet with soft, gentle well strcutured malt covered by grassy hops. Chewy and almost velvetty. salty finish. A superb malt character that lifts this beer. They know what they are doing at Zehendner!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Herbal hops and light hay-like pils malts evolve in a dryish mouthfeel laced in alcohol warmth and balancing bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frothy head of foam stays atop the misty straw blond.
-I don’t understand why alcohol warmth needs to be present here.
-Flavor profile could be a tad more characterful to my tastes.
-I don’t understand the need to drink this one when you have access to their splendid Lagerbier. The latter has more flavour and more drinkability.
-The effervescent mouthfeel is very enjoyable.
On tap at Ma Che Siete, Roma.

Bottle kindly given to me by Gerhard at Café Abseits in Bamberg. Slightly hazy golden/orange with a lasting thick cream head. Looks really carbonated, I may have to decant this to get some of the gas out of it. Slightly perfumed aroma. Good light bock but with a definite alcohol punch. Some hop, I know it’s called a Maibock, but it does actually taste of May. Like May blossom. Really drinkable. Alcohol is hidden well. Yep really tasty.

Bottle. A clear one, except for microfloaties, golden in color and topped by a finger-thick white head. Quite hoppy on the nose, grassy and lightly peppery. Pine cone notes too. Full-bodied, nicely carbonated and slighlty warming. The flavor is bitter, with the maltyness subdued. Lasting bitter finish too. Certainly one of the best heller bocks I’ve had. 110819

On tap at Cafe Abseits, Bamberg, 4/5/2014. Slightly hazy and gold in colour, with a decent white head and a touch of carbonation. Sweetish, floral lager, with some crisp malts and well concealed alcohol. Pleasant.
