Barley John's Brewing Company Fruhling Starkbier Maibock

Barley John's Fruhling Starkbier Maibock, brewed and canned by Barley John's Brewing Company, New Richmond, Wisconsin. All. 8.5% by Vol, 30 IBU.

Clear, golden/amber appearance, lush ivory head.

Aroma: soft, slightly sweet and grainy. Subtle malty notes.

In the mouth: Creamy, sweet, and balanced. Rich, smooth and clean, medium-bodied, with a long and lovely finish. I love a good maibock, and this is definitely one of them. Quite a tasty lager, indeed.

From the label: "My maibock is a rare double-decocted fully lagered 8.5% pale bock. Lip-smacking with caramel and toffee notes. Gnome me oh man! Enjoy!--Barley John."
