3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange. Another sweet malty nose of bubble gum and corn. Sharp hops and grain in the flavor, leading to a dull pale malt finish. A little spicy at times, with rye or wheat or something. A little alcohol in the nose as it warms.

Almost a deep brown color with a still character. The beer is sweet, caramel and vaguely nutty. Not the best Maibock in Vegas by any means. OK.

Clear and yellow-gold with a frothy, lasting head ("whipped egg whites" is a pretty accurate deScription). Nose was sweet and spicy. Lightly crisp and fairly clean mouthfeel. Some watery notes, but not bothersome. Malts were light, husky, grainy, earthy and cracker-like with an underlying sweetness that matched nicely. I found the beer pleasant to drink and rather refreshing. It also had a nice amount of bitterness to balance things out and keep it interesting. As far as "Summer Beers" go, it wasn’t a bad one.
