Brewery: Griesbräu
Town:
Murnau
Style:
Hellerbock
Color:

Head:
thinning
Nose:
malty with some hops in nose
Body: medium
-bodied, low carbonation

rich and malty with some stickiness

Served:
on tap at the brewery

Impression: Expected a bit more from this Maibock as other seasonals here have been quite good.  I had had a similar one in Ettal earlier in the day and kind of hoped this one would be more what I was looking for.  The brewpub has a nice atmosphere and after a long walk and short train trip, it was a very pleasant beer to drink.  It just didn’t finish the way I’d have liked.  Surprisingly, they had two of their own Maibocks on tap and the second, a craft beer version, was much better.

Care for another Maibock?

    1. It’s kind of like it just sticks in your mouth, something you generally don’t like. The best beers here seem to avoid it more easily than Stateside, at least without profuse use of hops. Both have their merits and I’ve been a fan of both for a long time.
