Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Gordon Biersch's makes another in their series of German style beers wit htis Maibock. All I can say is that this is a smooth to drink bock (Einbecker style), and could easily see as a sessionable winter/spring beer. The alcohol warms, but is not harsh even at above 7%.

Not entirely remarkable, however, it definitely has merit.
