• Ayinger Maibock (Germany)

    See the Full BevX Featured Review & Beverage of the Week

    Brilliant golden hue; pours with a white frothy head. The nose is alluringly complex with rich scents of roasted malt, ripe fruit, rising bread dough, and vibrant spices with a hint of bittering hops. The palate is very lush, with sweet malt foiled by sweet spices and a perfectly judged bitter hop bite on the finish. Full-bodied, with ideal balance and a silky texture. 5 Stars

  • Castle Eggenberg Brewery Samichlaus Bier (Austria)

    Bright copper color. The nose is wildly fruity with scents of cherry, orange peel, currants, sherry, roasted nuts, and gobs of sweet malt. The palate echoes the aromatics while being ultra sweet and powerful. Brewed only once a year on December 6 then aged for 10 months before bottling. Old vintages are enjoyed as holiday specialties. This beer has somewhat of a cult following but I find a bit out of whack with it’s alcohol strength. 3 Stars

  • Mahrs Christmas Bock (Germany)

    Deep bronze color with a short head. The aromatics offer classic scents of fresh yeast, early morning bakery style while also floral with a deft accent of hops, caramel, and roasted nuts, The texture is amazingly silky while vibrant showing incredible balance and complexity. The finish trails with a pretty marriage of malt and hops with a complimenting note of cocoa nibs. Wonderful. 4 Stars
