Impression: Ayinger makes a fairly large portfolio of regular beers, all well-made, but their seasonals are their true strength and this Maibock is no exception.  It’s a tough bock to beat for Biergarten drinking, arriving a deep golden with an enticing, dense white head. It’s rich maltiness is well-balanced with fair hopping for a Southern Bavarian brew. The finish is moreish.  Quite nice.
