Primátor Maibock

$2.99 for the 500 mL bottle from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
The pour is a truly gorgeous golden color with good clarity and nice carbonation. Head is OK with some lace and a little retention. Color is really great.
Nose reveals very little other than lots of rich, deep malt.
Tastes reflect the nose but bring some dry character and a little alcohol. The dry character is quite a surprise by it merges well with the malts and produces quit a bit of depth. There seems to be some fruity notes amongst the other competing flavors and it drinks with a certain crispness which may be a function of the dry notes that come through.
A beer that comes with some decent character and intensity which was not what I was expecting. Good value too, especially for me in one of my favorite styles.
