Golden Fleece Maibock

I love a good bock and was delighted to get this as part of my Easter Bunny package from PittBeerGirl – thanks!
12 oz single.
Pretty much a quintessential American example of the style for me. Nice golden color with a decent head and some good retention and lace. In addition we get a nice golden color (important for the style), and a decent alcohol warmth that does not get in the way of drinkability. Now of course, the beer does creep up on you come the end of the bottle so the alcohol is still a feature.
Nice malts compete for your attention all the way through the beer. There is a touch of bitterness in the finish but the malts dominate in keeping with the style. A nice sweet and sour combo guide the beer. As i say above, the alcohol builds but it still remains very tasty and moreish. Good stuff, I’d happily drink this again.
