Dark amber pour little white head. Smells of sour dough and caramel malt. Flavor all malt to the floor. Not as sweet or syrupy as you might expect and well balanced out with a firm bitter finish. Light carb nice mid body.

Bottle: Pours a clear, copper/orange with a modest beige head. Sweet aroma is grassey with a bit of dough. Flavors is also sweet, but earhthy and some faint bitters. The higher abv is apparent, but not overwhelming. A nice version of the style.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle- I hope this isn’t old, these are supposed to come out in May, right? Pours clear red amber with a thin soapy white head, aroma is dirty syrupy malt, caramel. The taste is all caramel malt, but not as good as it sounds, kind of sickly sweet. The body is thin, carbonation is medium low. It tastes like a sweeter version of an Oktoberfest.

Smooth. Maibock is a perfect foil to the dark beers of winter. Tastes like spring.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a decent one inch light tan head. Taste is of malt, caramel, smoke, grass, flowers, honey and some hops. Similar aroma. Has a nice full body and is a tad creamy. There is a bit of dryness and bitterness in it, especially towards the end. Smooth and very easy to drink. Well worth getting again as it is refreshing and drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Colour: Golden red. Nose: Over-ripe corn, wet dog, sticky sweet syrup. Blah. Taste: Sweet early malt, peaches and cream combined with rich cherry in the middle, late sweetness but controlled. Terrible nose is saved by a moderate taste and nice appearence but overall this one falls short.
