Growler pour thanks to portableparty. Clear dark amber pour, good carbonation and a sweet malty aroma. Flavor is caramelly malt, sweet brown sugar and slightly dry on the aftertaste. A very good maibock, but not Barley John’s best offering.

Growler pour. Pour is clear copper with a sticky off white head that showed some lacing. Aroma is sweet spiced malt and faint bitterness. Taste is sweet and malty with a nice fruit and spice taste going on. Palate is medium and sticky and finishes dry. Solid, I like!

Pale orange color, slightly hazy. Very sweet aromas, mostly citrus and toffee. Some smoky wood notes. A bit of a resinous hop undercurrent supports an extra sugary maple wood taste. Bright shades of orange. Clean and rich palate. Slightly too sweet for my taste but very drinkable.

Gitchee Gumee Brewfest 2005. Weak wafts of rich berry. Flavors are dominated by sugary wheat and some blackberry. This is a Maibock! I love that crisp, clean sweet sugary smack and finish. Nice brew!
