12 oz single, Jax, Sandy Spings, Atlanta, GA, USA. First time I have seen this in Atlanta in several years, despite the multitude of other Flying Dog brews we get here.
Very bright, seriously golden pour with some good head and a little lacing. Lots of clarity – good carbonation. Much lighter color than most Bocks, but I think this is a reflection of the Maibock style rather than this beer in particular.
Very flavorful and fragrant nose. Lots of sweet malts and a grassy hop smell.
Very smooth. Great combination of simple malt, biscuity sweetness, light hop bite in the finsh and a little alcohol edge. Very well put together. Reminded me of a malty/sweeter Pils with a darker color.
Enjoyable and very good drinkability.
