Update: June 9, 2013: My how times have changed. Seems I haven't reported back on this wonderful German-style Maibock beer since Georgia changed its law on beer strength. The limit was raised from 6% to 14% shortly after I wrote the above about 5 Seasons ME-262 Maibock, and 5 Seasons has popped the cap on this beer, too: it now weighs in at 8.5% alcohol by volume.
Taking a sip tonight, I have to admit that this is one of the best Maibocks I have ever had bar none. Fresh candyish malt, cooked corn, dry grassy hop finish-they're all here. The price is average at $6 for the 20-ounce "true" pint. They don't call this ME-262 anymore; it just shows on the draft list as Maibock. I will always think of it as ME-262, but whatever you call it it should not be missed.
Enjoyable indeed with a house-baked buckwheat pretzel served with savory, creamy cheese spread ($5) and a huge stack of sweet vidalia onion rings thick and tasty with onion and dipped in a beer batter accompanied by a spicy tomato mayo dipping sauce ($8).
And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
