Poured clear lightish orange with no head. I could tell that this oneís been around for a while by the extreme lack of carbonation. For a second, I really thought that I was drinking sweetened iced tea.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewpub (Harrisburg). Light orange/copper body with a small off-white head, slightly hazy. Very fruity aroma, with caramel and toffee and light alcohol. Very sweet malty flavor, but with lots of alcohol on the finish. Medium bodied, nice mouthfeel up front, but a little fizzy on the tongue in the back end. Not the most impressive Maibock, and from the commercial description it looks like the excessive sweetness is their aim so I guess itís just not the beer for me.

Tap at Appalaichan Brewpub. Straw/copper blonde. Tight white head. Fruity-yeast, near belgian aroma. Bready flavor, like a good hearty seedy triangle roll. Medium bodied, honeyish finish. smooth-dough. OK!

Loads of sweetness right off the bat, followed by warming alcohol. Mild German hoppiness. Finishes too hot in the alcohol department.

A little too sweet and cloying for my liking. You can also notice the alcohol at the end. Needs a bigger body and more mouthfeel from more munich malts and the like. Other than that it starts off pretty good but finishes a bit bland.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body contained no carbonation, was transparent and orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild malts . Its mouth feel is initially tingly mildly fruity with a lingering tingly palate and a mild smooth vinous aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild vinuous malty doughy notes.
