Huge, quite annoying if I am honest, extremely wispy head that oddly fades to almost nothing quite quickly. The color of this beer is quite fascinating, very, very pale with a bit of light, lime green hue. A very strong but clean nose. Some white peppery spice in there too. Smooth but not especially lively in the mouth, it feels slightly under carbonated but of course this is often a function of the can. It's not quite as bitter in the taste as the nose might suggest. Lovely bready, noble hop...

Einbecker WINTER-BOCK

I love this beer. I love everything about it. From the packaging through to the last drop, the whole package feels authentic and satisfying. Pour is an amazing, garnet color with absolute clarity. Copper notes hits when the light bounces off it beautifully. Head is well formed, but dissipates pretty quickly. Small ring of foam is retained on the edges, but little lace on the glass. Head and its retention might be the weakest part of the beer. Nose is all that you would expect with a rich, malt...

Purchased from The Vintage Cellar, Blacksburg, VA, USA. Notch on the back label has the "06" cut out! Old? Difficult to tell to be honest. Poured with a decent amount of mocha colored head and a surprisingly reddish body. It looks good but under no circumstances would one call this black, and to be honest it has the appearance of a brown ale; a good brown ale, but a brown ale nevertheless. Decent lace and retention. The nose and tastes are obviously very malty (as per the style and in line...

Additional notes 08/17/22 (Pictured) I've always loved this beer with its copper colored clarity and well-defined, stylistically correct parameters. Malt lovers rejoice, as do those interested in clean beer, traditional and stylistically correct beers. Original notes 08/11/2009 Exceptional beer. On-tap at The Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA and many times from the bottle. I like the presentation, especially the glassware - classy and very German. Green color is attractive. Pour is a golden amber...

Updated notes (and pictured) 02/11/24 I stand by the fact that this is a bit maltier in terms of sweetness than some Dunkels. It has an English Bitter note about it, which for me at least is a good thing. Still insanely drinkable, still delicious. I've always loved the presentation of all of the Einbecker beers. Original notes 03/15/09 Delighted to find this as an 11.2 oz single at Green's on Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA for $2.75. The Einbecker Mai-bock is arguably one of my favorite beers of all...
