Gordon Biersch Maibock Draft (8/10)

Gordon Biersch, a Columbus, Ohio, brewer, produces and sells a number of beers through its brewery/restaurant locations.  Their Maibock is an excellent example of the style.

It pours into the glass a reddish medium brown with a thick white head that dissipates quickly, and a lot of lacing.

The flavor is an excellent balance of roasted caramel malt sweetness and hops bitterness.  Fortunately, it's served in half-liter glasses at their restaurant - since you'll want to sample a lot of it.

ABV: 7.3%
IBU: 25
My rating: 8/10
