3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at Gettysburg brewery. Slightly cloudy amber and burnt orange colored body with a regular sized, 1/2 inch head. Crisp and lightly sweet corn and grain scents, leafy as well. Some dried wood and leaves in the flavor too, along with more of the sweet but sharp corn, not overly sweet or sugary, in fact the hops balance this sweetness well, making it crisp and lively. More flavors of honey and toasted grains in the finish... good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured clear lightish orange with no head. I could tell that this one’s 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 it’s 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!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Loads of sweetness right off the bat, followed by warming alcohol. Mild German hoppiness. Finishes too hot in the alcohol department.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
