1 Liter

Brewed 1/25/07

I received this bottle in another great trade with BitterBill, thanks again Bill! This comes in another of those big 1 liter was topped bottles. Mammoth Maibock pours a slightly hazed deep golden with orange hues throughout. Huge carbonation bubbles rise to the surface keeping the dense two finger eggshell white head going. As the head eventually falls to a finger it leaves streaked lacing down the mug.

The nose is strictly malt driven. The base flashes between freshly husked grains and slightly sweet grains. There seems to be a mild green apple and floral honey aroma coming from the depths that manages to add a touch more sweetness. The graininess is clean and fresh. This is a very inviting maibock and fits the style well.

Big clean fresh graininess right off the bat that lasts from the second it hits the tongue through the swallow. The grain becomes sweet mid palate and finishes with a touch of bitterness. The mild green apple and honey are both in the flavor but are barely noticeable. This is a strong example of the style and one I wouldn't hesitate to drink again.

The mouthfeel is just right. Body is on the lighter side of medium and moves through rather quickly leaving a slight bitterness behind. Some residual sweetness is left behind as well.

Mammoth Maibock is an easy one to put away. My mug is disappearing far too quickly. It's a good thing this comes in a liter bottle.

Mammoth Maibock is another good beer from the guys over at Grand Teton. I've been impressed with all their beers up to this point. They did a great job with a style not many American breweries try and tackle. This is a good example of the style. Thanks for the taste Bill!

Mammoth, as in the bottle? Poured a lighter shade of brown with great clarity. A soft, fuzzy white head had good retention and decent lacing throughout. But the head and lacing did not make it through the full tasting.

The nose is soft overall. Some light malty notes with a hint of bready notes. Some lighter kettle caramel notes. Some minor yeasty notes but nothing over the top. A few fruity esters and a light sourness in the finish.

The taste is mostly grainy with some malty backing. No real distinct malt notes, would have liked to see more Munich flavors come out. Some bready flavors with a noticeable oxidation/cardboard. There is a sweetness in the finish that is board line sugary. There is a lemony almost green apple acetaldehyde finish that mixes with a odd earthy floral hop mix. A bit odd for a dopplebock.

The body is moderate to full. The sweetness helps that out a bunch. Carbonation is low which is ok. Overall the taste is a bit off but minor tweeks and could be good. Wonder how well it would age.
