Bullock’s, Marietta, GA, USA as a single. Quite why a Maibock/Helles is being marketed as a “Christmas Bock” I’m not sure, but there it is.
Opening the bottle produces some pretty aggresive foaming. Pour is a cloudy, honey colored body and comes with an impressive, rocky head. The carbonation continues to impress in the glass. Good looking beer. Plenty of residual sweetness with brown sugar and burned molasses – surprising for such a ligh colored brew. Minor hop bitterness cuts across the finish (like a mild Pils) with some alcohol. Despite the initial sweetness, it still finishes quite dry.
To me this is a bit of an odd combination of textures and flavors but it sort of works. Not sure if this is a very typical Maibock/Helles, but it presents nicely and drinks OK.
