Stoudt’s Blonde Double MaiBock

12oz single from Mac’s Midtown, Atlanta, GA, USA. A little past its best before date, purchased as part of the $8.99 mixed sixer. Label different to the picture in the BA db.
Aggressive pour leads to a nice formed, fluffy head with some really good lace. This sits on top of a golden body with excellent clarity. Carbonation is low, but perhaps a function of the beer being a little older than I would normally be drinking it.
For some reason, the initial tastes remind me of a 1980’s Whitbread Pale Ale – no idea why. Very bready and malty up front with a nice hop bitterness. This gives way to a sweeter finish than the initial tastes would suggest. It also come with some extra fruity notes and a little white pepper. Almost tripel like.
Finishes strong with more alcohol present than up front. Drinks nicely and easily.
Very tasty and a nice interpretation. I enjoyed it.
