Another from the 100 Barrel Series from Harpoon of Boston, this Maibock is a nice malty expression of the bock without a heavy level of hops...and without that nice goat usually found on the label of a bock. The beer pours a nice caramel with a rich thick tan head that leaves an inordinate amount of lacing. Great sweet malt nose becomes greater apply raisiny sweet round malt mouthful with a faint fog of smoke.
Even cold from the fridge there is a strong cutting bitter hop edge with some green but no metallic. Like the Salvator, something of a Scots heavy feel to it, even in the sense that there might be some roast barley there in that bittering edge but without that tell-tale accompanying red tinge to the brew.
