Beer 353: Einbecher Brauhaus

Tailgating is not always fun and games. Every now and then it ends up with ridiculous numbers of prescription drugs and chest x-rays. Let that be your warning for having as much fun as humanly possible during the football season. You can always sleep when you're dead.  I guess I have Warren Zevon on the brain after Gary's post yesterday

Today's beer is the Einbecher Brauhaus Mai Ur Bock, a maibock or helles bock with an ABV of 6.5%.  It pours a bright copper color with a thick off white head. The smell is toasted malt with hints of hops. It tastes quite rich with raisins, some fig and lots of honey. There is very little noticeable hop in this beer. What's there is very flowery.  I think I would have liked a little more bite to balance out the rich sweetness. 

There are definitely better examples in this category out there...Lancaster Brewing's Rumspringa comes to mind.  Cheers!
