Griebräu Maibock Hopfig Frisch

20170511_155451_cr.jpg

Brewery: Griesbräu
Town:
Murnau
Style:
Hellerbock
Color:
unfiltered honeycomb
Head:
white, fluffy
Nose: nice mix of malt and
hops
Body: medium
-bodied, low carbonation
Palate:
rich and malty but a definite floral hoppiness in the mix
Finish: dryish, bittersweet
Served:
on tap at the brewery

Impression: This was the third Maibock of the day and though it was unusual looking for the style, it was by far the best. Both Ettaler’s and Griesbräu’s own traditional Maibock were overly malty, even for bocks, and mostly lacked a good finish. Even though that one was called traditional, I’d like to imagine that in times of yore, this new fab craft beer version being touted was more of what a Maibock would have tasted like.

Another Maibock?

One thought on “Griebräu Maibock Hopfig Frisch

  1. When floral tastes are mentioned with wines, I don’t choose them. I’m not sure how a craft beer would taste with floral tones. . .
    Of course, “fruity” ones are more likely. My comments are meant to get you chuckling.
