I’ve done my part for the betterment of the community today. This decent, but not overwhelming brew is 6.5% ABV, at least according to the online menu of the restaurant Christian Moerlein just opened in Cincinnati. I submitted an update to the powers that be at Beeradvocate. You’re welcome.
STYLE: Maibock / Helles Bock
LOOK: Golden orange, iced tea. Nonstop rush of bubbles.
NOSE: Malty dominance, bitter honey, walnuts.
MOUTH: Bananas, lemon, bubblegum. A little too banana maybe, which says to me neither “Spring” nor “Cincinnati.” Whatever. There’s a dry, not altogether pleasant finish that’s a tad too sharp to follow the sweet fruity notes.
