Some bottles from Erie Brewing Co appeared in my fridge recently, so I opted to try the Golden Fleece Maibock in my quest to let Bocks grow on me – I haven’t seen too many Maibocks from American breweries before. Erie Brewing is located in (surprise!) Erie, PA, and the Maibock is their spring seasonal. It was light amber/gold in color, and had minimal head. The thing that really hit me was the maltiness. I’m a big fan of malt, but this seemed a bit harsh – it had a flavor similar to what you’d get actually chewing on grain. Luckily, that flavor diminished as I tried a bit more.
