Imagine looking out the window into the garden and admiring the sprouting green of young spring. Your gaze wanders over the first dandelions, thick buds on all branches, delicate leaves, bright yellow daffodils, tulips in all colors and blooming fruit trees. Bees buzz through the air and the birds sing. In the middle of this idyll stands a goat and beheads every single plant in your salad bed with a brisk look.
There’s a cocky goat outside!
Because a goat is basically nothing more than a buck, this name fits this playful Maibock from Sudden Death Brewing like a glove. We don’t know if the brewers had to experience the frightening scenario firsthand, but their latest creation tells of cheeky billy goats.
The Maibock with the humorous name has a decent 6.7% alcohol content and flows into the glass the color of ripe ears of corn. The seasonal drop was flavored with dried elderflowers, which are noticeable both in the scent and in the taste. After a floral first impression, the initial taste scores with nutty malt, floral notes of elderberry, creamy honey and a hint of fruity hops. The bock is spring fresh and is accompanied by a moderate bitterness.
Fortunately, the cheeky goat is not included.
